The reason with going with the stock ECU is a combination of expense and requirements of the engine. I had a Hydra set-up when I was planning on using E85 with a USDM 2.5L engine, but have since sold that when my engine choice changed. I am using the stock turbo and stock internals so nothing really crazy. The stock ECU will do everything that I need to do and will control the AVCS properly. When I was looking at aftermarket ECU's, the ones that controlled the AVCS were very expensive. As per Tim Bailey at Cobb Tuning Surgeline (who will do the tuning) we shall see how this does and go from there.
