Alright I back with more ECU questions....
Well as some of you may know I've been very much so on the fence between doing an OBDII---->OBDI conversion or just simply upgrading via Shark and M50 manifold. Due to budgetary concerns I've been on the hunt to fulfill the later of the two scnearios.
**** yea, yea i know this is Bimmer and that I shouldn't be cheap, but Im gonna have to be thrifty or I will blow my $4500 buget away (ie: Cosmo intake over Dinan intake..... used M50 manifold vs. Shrick etc etc)
I've come across this deal and wanted to bounce it off all you experts to see what you think and what the risks are that involved against the cost savings.
I've come a across a USED Dinan Stage 2 ECU (this is the 9hp/9tq spec ECU.) I've spoken to the owner and he's in the mist of a turbo upgrade project on his 98 M3 and thus has no use for the Dinan.
The ECU is gonna cost me $150 and he is willing to go with me to BMW of Greenwich (an authorized Dinan installer) to have the swap done.
My total cost $225. (ECU and install)
I was on the cell in the car when we talked, so I still need to confirm 100% that this ECU upgrade (98 M3) is the same for my car (96 328is)
So, if the part numbers match up, and this is gonna be proffesionally installed what if anything do I need to concern myself with????
Thanks in advance,
EDIT: I guess I should add my project list here incase it has an affect on this ECU upgrade
-Comsos CAI (install this week)
-Turner Pulley Kit (install this week)
-Fan Delete Mod (install this week)
-M50 manifold (should be done in the next 60 days... assuming I stay OBDII)
-UUC exhaust - (in the spring.... damn I hate to have to drive this winter with that beautiful exhaust
Those are the primary mods
