    switchable maps

    Iv been thinking of getting a three way switchable map 1st on standard pump gas 95 octane 2nd on vpower optimax ect and 3rd methanol mix just wanted to know if anyone has got a switchable map and how they rate it? Also what ecu is recomended to do this or would a standard ecu with a piggyback system be possible?

    I've got an APR 3 way switchable map and it's ok, my last setting is for 102 octane , so I have not used it much ... If you are tracking it I suppose it would be useful...

    yes it is being used for 1/4 mile and some track use this year so i was looking for something with a few options to make it more usable for driving on the road aswel. Is yours still running a standard ecu?
