+1 ebay is your best bet for OEM. I'd be more worried about finding a standalone to tune it, there really needs to be a cheaper alternative than spending $1000

All tuning products are only as good as the local tuners who use tune for that system. Buy a vi-pec is only good advice if there is/are local shops who tune vi-pec.

same can be said for the PowerFC, which is really the only other viable standalone. there is development on a daughter-board for the OEM ECUs too: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Enduri...d/341833312224
but i assume the actual tuning options there are rather limited.

From what I read on the UK suby boards the Enduring solutions product (ESL) is apparently pretty amazing however because there are no vendors in British Columbia and as far as I know Washington state either I wouldn't touch it with someone else's 10-ft pole.

Linkecu.com

They sell standalones that are completely plug and play or you can wire it in yourself and are kick arse.

the ViPEC is a rebranded Link that is plug and play and actively supported with direct USB->computer interface (no special box needed like with the PowerFC)
