I'm going to buy a 2005 GT 5 speed (I can't get the wife to see why we'd need the GT-S, I'm darned lucky we're getting a GT-she wanted a Honda Civic, I convinced her the Cel is better on trips heh heh) and get the TRD cat-back exhaust and the TRD air filter for the intake and take out the butterfly valve, but I want to know what my choices in ECUs are, which one performs the best in a GT, and which ECU are reliable and won't damage my car.

Yes you will need a laptop to tune both..however the Power FC can be tuned with the FC commander, but its so much easier with a laptop...If your getting the GT why not boost it? then you will make some serious power

So there's nothing like a plain-old plug in E-PROm that exists for the GT? If I can't find one, hom much of a horsepower boost should I expect from the mods that I want to do (look at the beginning of the thread for more info) without any ECU mods? I can't get too radical, I want this to be a daily driver and keep my Toyota warranty.

You can look into getting a unichip if you want plug and play.
