    Ill update this when i get started. Im going to also need a new throttle pedal as i need to run a throttle cable (im guessing its fly by wire as standard). I also need to have a look at the injector size and flow rate so i can get a idea of where to start putting together a base setup.

    Does make much sense to remove something that is in there working great.

    Aside from the fact that carbs are almost always useless gains apart from the noise.
    With great challenges comes great engineering.

    I highly doubt the standard ecu is properly mappable so its all well and good using it but the car wont run right if at all.

    as on the 205 (im guessing u have an mi16 block) there is the dizzy adaptor, is there no way of retro fitting the block with a similar setup? this may only work on a stripped (de- sensored, etc car)

    the stand alone ecus are fine but a pain to set up. (i can get good deals on emerald tho

    if the ecu is removed then all the sensor results become redundant, surely the engine would knock bang smoke and die after a short while?

    could a cheap set of jenvy or even an old set of r1 tb's not be the way forward? adapting the old ecu with a piggyback for mapping may be cheaper and easier?
