    Has anybody done a tune for the Frankenturbo on a 96 1.8T with the old 557 no letter ecu?

    I think you'll struggle finding anyone that will map those old ECU's, especially as they require chipping and the chips used are obsolete/discontinued.

    Your best bet is probably to swap to a later engine wiring harness and ECU. I have a harness and ECU sitting here if your interested, baught it for someone who then changed his mind. Drop me a PM if your interested.

    ^^ What he said then a proper custom tune. Be prepared to spend up to £600 on tuning though, as we don't even have off the shelf tunes for k04-15s over here
