    Hi all. I had to find a new ECU for my VS as the original was throwen out by a mate in a garage clean out. I have a wolf/aem and they're are c...s and have no customer service so wont give me a base tune. Enough bashing those pr.cks.
    So I bought an 808 fairly cheap recoed now I'm after a memcal on the cheap and standard is fine as I'll be either using the wolf again or buying a haltec 900 likely the wolf as I only need it to run ignition once the engine is built.
    Getting a guy to tune the wolf back to a standard 304 would cost more than buying a 808 and memcal FFS!

    Guessing it's manual if you want 808 or 2 plug ecu?

    Try aceperformancetuning on fb or ebay...give him all your info he should be able to get it close enough to be drivable & also add fan temps,vats off etc

    I just received the 808 but the seller was unsure if it had a memcal as it was a reco item in it's packaging. Because it did not have a memcal I now need to buy one but I don't want to pay too much

    I did some searching and bought one off a guy called commodoregear on ebay. so $250 for the 808 and $100 for memcal I'm in it for $350 which I think is pretty good.

    Well I did ask for recommendations but I want the memcal asap. Since I put a standard engine in it's never run for more than 30 seconds. I put it away while I was busy with other things in life now I'm going to try and drive it to my work after 4 years haha.

    Recommended ACE because he is a business also on fb & ebay would probably take 3-4 days similar pricing...if you wanted it done cheaper properly for less or same pcmhacking peeps be way to go for vr/s modified/tuned memcal into 808 ecu that'd also be soild cheap or donated.

    Do agree wanting it asap will always cost more.

    Oh sorry I drank a few beers last night and misread your reply. Thanks for your reply, I would've gladly gave my buisness to them/him if I wasn't half cut.

    I was thinking you were talking about my wolf ECU being tuned like I said a few beers distorts your thinking.

    The1 or Delcowizzid (on this forum pr PCMhacking) or Ace as before. Will take some time on an exchange or original return basis if they don't have their own memcals in stock, but they're far better than the ebay guys who don't do anything or just change the idle and blindly smash more timing in.

    It's only to get it regoed then I'll try and use the wolf to tune the timing once I go carby.
