I recently had the Adaptronic ECU installed in my MK3 turbo GTi.

Running a turbo out of a 300ZX with standard 10:1 compression and 390cc DSM Eclipse (Automatic Transmission) injectors.

Dynoed prior to install at 94 kW at front wheels on 9 psi. After install with basic map (designed to meet NSW emissions), peak power up to 101 kW.

Installed cultus IM which I had reversed (yes I know a sin to cut up a cultus IM...) and reset the cams back to standard setting (had too much overlap which was going to affect the emissions testing) and came away with 106 kW. Pretty happy with a minimum gain of 5 kW! Once I have done the emissions test to get the car engineered will adjust the map to get the top end a little richer, work on the cam settings and improve the overall power curve (looking for 108-110 kW at a minimum).

I can highly recommend this computer. The control of the injectors (which are some 45% bigger than standard 265cc items) is fantastic. The idle is smoother than what I was getting with the standard ECU. Even with a map aimed at running stoich through a large portion of it (for emissions) I am still getting around 550 km's per tank (same as what I was getting with standard ECU and Suzitech's turbo chip). The mapping is easy to work with and you can download the management program from the website, plug your laptop in (I use a serial to USB cable) and you have access to it all. Has two fuel/ignition maps (I'm using values at 300rpm points), you can do gear sensing, boost control for each gear and a bunch of other stuff. Works with GTi's existing sensors so you dont have a lot of mucking around to set it up.

Plenty of information at the website (http://www.adaptronic.com.au) and I know there are at least a couple of other redliners using the system.....another great Aussie invention....please consider.... :lol:

It’s nice to hear that you like the Adaptronic ECU.

We are the distributor for Holland and we also did a turbo project on a stock G13B GTI engine with no mods making 123Kw on the wheel and with 15% drive train losses that’s about 140Kw on the crank. I must say running 75Kpa boost is the max and you have to over fuel it a bit to be safe.
The engine is really stock and we razed the fuel pressure with 100Kpa getting 290cc fuel a minute out of theme.
We run the engine in closed loop all the time if we want on a LC-1 wide band o2 sensor that is using the serial port on the ECU. It really gives good fuel economy.
The turbo kit was engineert to give the max torque from low RPM on wards using a very efficient GT1549 GARRETT turbo. 180Nm at the wheels at 2500Rpm and a max of 209Nm on the wheels is not bad. :twisted:
The biggest problem was making a clutch that could transfer the torque.

Have a look at it if you want the ECU file is on Andy’s web site. http://www.adaptronic.com.au/field.php

I have been following these ECU's since Puss-On-Boost first mentioned he was installing one. The fact their website is so open, providing software, guidance and installation assistance (check out the forum) is an excellent selling point. I have also been watching the forum for some time, and the initial creator of the ECU (Andy) is extremely helpful even with the most technical of questions.

I can't say I have bought or installed one yet, but I have honestly heard great things about this ECU from multiple GTi owners (who still have their standard dizzy intact :D) now, so it is definitely on the shopping list :wink:

I think this page really sums up just how genuine these guys are:

Yep Andy is one of the best you can have on dealing with problems and questions. :wink:
We do a lot of beta testing for Andy and giving him lots of good ideas about the use of the ECU.
Ideas that he will implement in the ECU if there is a general use for it.
We worked with other ECU manufactures before and mostly no reply on good ideas. :oops:

He is working on some nice things that are coming soon. I’m not sure that I can talk about this at this moment. There is something coming and it’s not an ECU. :?
Also the ECU will get more options for drag racing and extreme engine tuning. :twisted:
I think some of the new options will be in the H firmware version.

I have also obtained an Adaptronic for my Mk1 turbo project .. and the after sales service up here in Brisbane is fantastic as well. The agent Anthony (who has his own mechanical workshop) is coming over to my mechanics workshop after I get back from Canberra to sort out a couple of issues with the Adaptronic I have.

He will then be assisting with the dyno tuning etc ..

This is so much better than most assistance you get .. usually NONE!

Sly-1's ECU arrived today so it should be installed shortly.

Just to let people know the Adaptronic in my car has only ever had 1 bug - from experimental Firm Ware which was quickly sorted.

My ECU is currently supporting 231hp ATW and neither myself or my tuner can see any reason why it won't support more.

If anyone is interested in more info about purchasing one they can contact me via PM about a redline member deal :wink:

8) Great to hear words spreading, yeah Andy`s ECU has maps for cams, turbos, superchargers etc etc, ive got one put aside, gotta pay for it and fit it tho...lol

Definitely reccomended, system is as good a haltech, but cheaper.

I just noticed on the front page that Andy is looking for enquiries about a plug-able version. I think if we could get this off the ground for the GTi there would be a massive interest from members as there currently isn't an aftermarket plug-in solution for the original GTi (unless people are hiding one?)

http://www.adaptronic.com.au/

Should we start nagging him now and get in early?

That sounds like a brilliant idea!

Who wouldn't want a direct-swap aftermarket ECU solution? :?

My ECU installer has made my ecu a plug in setup :D . For what its worth its much easier to disconnect and looks so much neater. If andy makes them plug in i wuld think about getting one for the girlfriends stock gti.
