    Nice. Why have you swap the oem management over though?

    reason 1 , i dont need a maf , so i just use tps vs map

    reason 2 , i can do alot more with after market ecu such as

    Adaptive Lambda control: Self learning fuelling capabilit

    Adjustable speed and load sites

    Closed Loop EGT control

    Tailor boost curves

    Map switching

    Diffrent boost in diffrent gears

    i can change every single setting in the ecu , i dont have to pay some one to plug vag com in to see for any problems , or change settings

    it really dont cost that much to do , and its easy to use and understand and best of all its plug and play :)

    Yes, well done Jardo. This car doesn't have me7, and it'd cost just as much to convert to me7 as it would emerald, I know which I'd choose.

    Looks cool mate, nice to see a different approach. Had you got any more details about this plug and play emerald setup? Does it retain the stock ecu to run the clocks and things? Is it genuine standalone? Or more of a piggyback affair?

    This is interesting stuff. I used to run an emerald ECU on my old Lotus Elise so I'm interested to see how this turns out on an 8L.

    I've seen an emerald ecu on a blue lotus x reg think it was that was more of a piggy back ecu for the 1.8 turbo engine fitted. Retaining standard clocks ect.

    Looks interesting build , something different.

    The lotus ecus were dreadful and a piggy back still didn't give many tuning advances. They needed an emerald and some decent cam pulleys to fine tune them.

    its fully standalone , you remove the bosh ecu and have an adaptor that plugs to your std loom and plugs into the emerald , every thing works except the mpg thing on the dash and one little thing controlling the dbw for idle , there finishing off the software for that so , i just fitted an idle screw

    also atm they only have a plug and play loom for an agu with 3-pin coils ndbw

    That sounds very cool indeed mate! I have an AGU with 3 pin coils so that's not an issue.

    Is emerald able to do anything like launch control or similar? I take it it controls boost via the standard N75? Does it have knock control as well like the stock ECU? What sort of cost are you talking for the ECU and plug+play loom all in?

    Sorry for all the questions! It's nice to see someone doing something a bit different for a change!

    yes use is the stock n75 , you can have launch control , if you use the map switch and push button so you use one map with a low soft cut and hard hard cut rev limit , and then you only have too maps , thats one way to do it , knock control should be ready soon just waiting for the new software to be realesed , lots more feautures coming too , and should be free , like tc , dbw , turbo timer

    money wise

    ecu cost 595 + vat

    plug and play plug cost 120 +vat

    and map sensor cost 60 + vat

    so it something like 780 plus the vat and you get discount if you say your on here i think like 5% off

    mk2 golf here now, on GT35 was on MBE, we have now wired in Emerald.... Not the latest version however.
    the TT I race against runs Emerald.. Works fine. Nice features.. I still like my DTA's however.. The new K6 has better features over its predecessors so I need to review their specs.. They keep developing them.
