Either a Nistune or a Link would be the way to go.

Every person that I've talked to that has tried them has had problems. I had one for a while quite a few years ago but sold it and bought a 2nd hand Link for about the same money.

Does your motor have VVT? You'd probably need to go for a G4 Storm. You could always ring Nzefi and ask for their recommendation.

You can ring Neville stowelle at link tech in timaru. Been working with link for 20 years and really nice to deal with. Plus his dyno tune is a 3rd of the price of anyone else!

Hi
Just get a G4 Extreme. everything you could want in a road car application. I may be full of crap but a think off the top of my head that the storm will only support 4 injection drivers. I wish I had bought a Motec ECU but that's another story ( compatability issues) the extreme seems good value for money.

Iv Hurd with the storm you have to run multi point injection and wasted spark if you want to go more the 4 cylinders

You won't need more than 3 injector drivers unless you want to run sequential injection. Running sequential would mean adding an extra sensor for crank position I'm pretty sure.

Batch injection is fine for 90% of people.

When multiple injectors are opened at once. L28s run on 2 batches, my RB runs 3.

They are what they call wire in ECUs and can be used with any engine that fits within the specs. I don't think they make a VG plug in.
