A massive thanks to Jared (Maztech) for all his help today swapping the wiring loom and ECU in my car.
Our day was very successful and we had the ECU and loom in after just a few hours work.
Much to our surprise everything went pretty much as planned and we have now turned my car into a very evil little beast(think it needs the evil mazda mod now)
You can feel the power coming on strong at 4K rpm and there is a very nice kick in the arse from 5500 rpm to 7200 rpm.

Is one swaybar twice the size as the other? Assuming they are for Sport 20 as front is massive and has cut out for gearbox. Any bushes?

What was involved in getting the new ECU to work, did much have to be re-wired?

Yes a fair bit had to be done both Phil and I have spent hours working this out . If you want to do this conversion send us the harness and we will do the modifications to it to make it bolt in.

Just had Phil & Jared over, and after going through some of my old rear swaybar install photo's, we have come to the conclusion that the one Phil has may be off the the AWD version, as the mounting points are horizontal, whereas my old AutoExe bar were diagonal:





She sounds mental as though, and it may have converted me

Cheers
