Grin new member here!!!

hey guys and girls lol I'm a new member really looking for some answers to some really good questions. I am looking or a chipped ecu for a 1988 mx6 I see alot of people have them but I haven't been able to fine a good site that sells them. I have a 2.2 that I jus had port and polished metal head gasket it had a custom grind cam and I'm going with a 60trim t3t4 that I pulled off my mustang. im really wanting to find a good ecu for it so i can use the power upgrades and see what kinda power I can put down so if anyone has some good advice let me know

I think that at this point in time no one is producing new chips for these cars. The only way you're going to find either a chip or a chipped ECU would be secondhand from someone in the community like on this website. The older 88-89 style is going to be the hardest one to find; most of the chips you'll find for sale (if any) will be for 90-92.

So what IS done, and what ISN'T?

If you have a GT, there are chips for that ECU that will eliminate boost/fuel cut, and advance the ignition slightly(I'm not an expert on this)

If you do not have the GT ECU, there is no chip for the N/A.


I'm going to be the A-hole right off the bat and say you don't really know what your doing/ know what you have, at least with the F2/F2T. (don't get me wrong, I am not an expert either, just a little put-off by your question)

IMO, the stock turbo motor is a learning experience from which you work off of and modify as needed. Very little needs to be done to make good power, and once your bored with that, the path most taken is an FMU to manage fuel for bigger injectors, and slap on a bigger turbo. Then maybe a standalone ECU, LSD, and some other expensive stuff.

You don't just say your going to put a metal head gasket on, bolt on a t3/4, and now you need a chip so "i can use the power upgrades". If that is the case, I would recommend Megasquirt hands down.

Excuse my attitude but I think I just want some pictures or more info or something...anything...

89' 626 GT ATX to MTX
Fast stuff: P-ECU/T-Bird Hybrid/Dual valve springs/Fidanza FW/Maas O2 housing/Mjspiess 2.5 Downpipe/side exit/Walbro 190/Bosh DRI injectors/NGK plugs/wires/MSD B2 coil/ATX TB
Stiff stuff: GC coilovers/Addco front sway/Addco rear sway/AWR trailing links/Energy endlinks/FSTB/RSTB/UR 4pt subframe bar/'Hondakiller' Tie bar/SS lines
