I picked up a blk/blk 2004 is300 a couple of days ago and also purchased a gte block, the car is auto and i wanted to boost it, currently i have being made custom intake/exhaust manifolds and wanted to know if any one has any input about different stand alone ecu's that are out there.
I was on the AEM forums and i like aem ems but i dont think that they have any intent to make one for the is :pissed: .

http://www.geocities.com/rudymanic/turbo this is exactly what is being made for my car using an 85mm trottle body with a little tweeking for for fit. the pic for the exhaust mani is not the actual exhaustmani the one that i an using is a copy of the hks turbo manifold made to fit the non turbo.
That isn't an IS300 engine bay. The clearances are way different in the IS engine bay, and you will need serious modification to the design in the pic. I hope the shop that is doing this for you knows this?

the haltech is now called the E6-X not E6-k. i would go with that one.
i believe these are two different ECU. Correct me if i am wrong
Yes, these are 2 different units.

They are both made from the same platform. But, the E6X is the latest and greatest version. The E6K is the version that has been out for a long time.

almost all stand alones have that capability

where the tec3 shines is its ignition system, most stand alones do not come with stand alone coils and such

I thought the F-Con was not standalone...

Motec is probably accepted widely as the best engine management. Sure, I am a bit biased since it is on my car. lol. Anyway, the functionality and available options are as extensive as any engine management available. The disadvantage is that Motec is NOT cheap.
