Default MBC-1....AccessECU-0

Based on straight time...Post is here

Disregard any other benifit of the AccessECU, he is only concerned about low times...does this sound right or could be have another tuning issue?

There is no arguement in my mind, that tuning can give you lower e.t.'s due to increased power etc. etc. than just using an MBC with stock computer..

In my case the results were just the opposite... with a MBC and my mods I used to run 13.5s over and over again at 99-100mph..

With the UTEC, the last time I went to the track after some tuning I did myself, I ran a 13.31@101.5mph, and had an 102mph trap on a 13.4 pass that day also in 80F humid weather too. Now, after some more tuning my car feels even faster and I wouldn't be suprised if I'm trapping at 102-103 consistently now..

I don't know alot about how the access ecu works, but like with utecs if you just load up an "stg.2" program without tuning for the maximum potential for your car specifically, than the results you get will be mediocre sometimes.

good point...his car was not specifically tuned. just the generic map. you post reminds me, he mentioned he went from trapping at 103.8 to hardly getting 100.8 iirc.

I am no drag racer, but his traps sound high based on what you say you were pulling. I figure with any base map you leave power on the table, maybe his car just needs to be tuned worse than others.

hah... the accessecu could be alot faster for drag racing sure.... but then we'd have to ship a countdown timer with each ecu.

Have fun!
