hey guys like the title says i would like some feedback and info on some tuning options for a DBW 03 celica, i have looked the fourms and searched for info and even asked the senior members here and there really isnt a definite answer. I know the ecu's on our cars reflash and over ride piggy back systems. So if thats the case what are ppl using? PE Camcon? E-manage?

If you want to use a standalone like a power fc, contact Boosted2.0 for a harness to make it compatible with +03 DBW

-Hydra (most expensive i think)
-AEM standalone (TC dbw guys use it but dont think any celica people do) ;
-PFC with the boosted2.0 harness ;
-Greddy Emanage (& ultimate) ;
-AEM FI/C.

i think that is all of them in price order'ish.

Just make sure you look completely in to all of them. There are reasons why there are so many. All do similar things but as price goes up so do the options and what is capable of each unit.

how much did the harness cost you? along with that 1000 for the pfc. does it work really good?

the AEM standalone can work on the celica but it takes a lot to do it. AEM was never able to crack the ECU to get the EMS to work. it is unfortunate because i have an AEM in my Supra and All-Trac and i love it.

Look up the price for what the PFC is nowadays, the price of Boosted2.0's harness, and the datalogit, and come back and say it's cheaper than the Hydra...
