RUKEEN can you give some details on the haltech you have? Is it a piggy back ecu or a throttle controller? And is it worth getting?

to Be honest with you i havnt done anything with the car in years its been packed away at my inlaws.
funny thing is its coming out next week so i can get the air bags replaced.
your best bet is talking to John from JC Racing in botany as he did the setup and tune and i know he has done heaps since mine.
i guessing my ECU would be old now and new technology out on the market.
