There's been a few people who have been tuned with it, but no dyno sheets. I don't think anyone here has switched from Uprev to Ecutek either. And all of the really cool features have been "any day now" for months. Visconti was the guy really pushing Ecutek, and he's been silent here since he set a customer's BRZ on fire.

Hey chuck , I saw that about the fire! Nuts man . I didn't really think anyone would retune with EcuTek from UPREV but guys who don't have tunes yet I thought might. I still see everyone staying with UPREV" new tunes"

Ill switch in an instant if they actually have it provide boost control and can tune the traction control. Ecutek has a better method of controlling timing than Uprev.

I wish someone would post some actual datalogs of a N/A Ecutek car with timing and AFR from the onboards.

No one will post it. Until I see logs showing more timing than what I see day in and day out on my own uprev tuned car, I refuse to believe they're accomplishing anything meaningful with their method. (For a N/A car)

I would love recalibrating traction control. Biggest drawback for switching with me is having to retune meth and no meth on a FI car. I can feel the rape already.

Spoke with John a day or two ago. Going to be making another trip up to see him in a month. Need to get retuned...some of you know my fiasco. Anyways the retune will include the new speed density feature in Ecutek.

Every vendor/tuner I've talked to will go back and forth with me forever about how great it is, but the moment I ask specifics on how it works and how it differs from Uprev I get silence.

Honestly I don't know that it is any better. I think its better for the tuner...makes their job easier which can potentially result in better performance for your car.

Ive gotten the exact same thing.

The only difference I personally can see is that Ecutek's engineers are making progress and innovating at a much faster rate over uprev.

Also while I was tuned in August there was a G37 that was a sandy victim. Car was frankensteined back to life. Anyways John was tuning that and knocked a few issues out for the owner. There are cars out there..

My PMs aren't coming to my email , but I'm around and still working on the cars.

I've posted up dynosheets of before after talked to a lot of people, most guys on the forums seem more interested in another vendors group buy.

Anyways there isn't any new news for 370Z/G37 from EcuTek right now.

EcuTek is trying to finish some GTR stuff and then on to 370Z/G37...

A lot of the GTR stuff will make it to 370Z , and I have full access to a GTR to do testing on, so I rather test the stuff on the GTR.

John

I appreciate the offer John, but I'm not making any kind of change until the features that were "just around the corner" in August are available. There has been no one here that has switched, only stock vehicles so we haven't seen any evidence of Ecutek providing any better results than Uprev. The gains seem to be right in line with what a similar Uprev tune would have provided. The greater timing control is great, but that's the only thing Ecutek has going for it until all of these vaporware features actually arrive.
