If you are using the LT series (laptop tunable), a decent tuner who knows what he's doing (ie tune in matrix mode) can give you good results and fuel economy. Many associate microtech with rotaries and assume things will always be the same (i.e poor fuel economy) like the old series, esp tuners/users who cannot get it right use convenient excuses to change ecu.

When a motec car isn't running right, its in the tune or whatever. When a cheaper ecu isn't running right, it's meant to be so cos you didn't pay big bucks. Go figure.

A $200 Wolf 2D and a $20,000 Pectel T10S will make the same power. The difference, apart from the cost, will be in the driveability and economy.

You may notice that the large majority of Microtech cars over east are Rigoli cars i.e. drag oriented. They work bloody well on WOT, as a drag car should, but you'd have to wonder about their part throttle driveability, cold start and fuel economy.

The reason most people use Microtechs on their rotaries, is because its a proven solution and the people tuning them can maximise efficiency and power, on a rotary engine. The rotary engine has a much simpler ECU requirement than the majority of engines, due to their fuel and ignition setup. A Microtech provides a good tuning solution for this simple setup. .

Why not go with a proven WRX solution, such as a Link, Autronic, Power FC or MoTeC? The tuners here have much experience tuning them and you'll get a better result, rather than a "good result because people over East have done so". Not to mention the support you can get from fellow ECU owners, and you can even "try before you buy" if you're lucky enough to find someone who will take you for a ride or a drive in their ECU equipped WRX.
