Where to flash or buy a new ECU

Hey guys (and gals) new to the board but ive been lurking for a while. I picked up a 2000 GT and the first mod i wanted to do is an ECU upgrade. My question is should i try to find one pre config'd or just reflash the one i have? What are my options on this? TIA

Well, AEM Sells a replacement ECU but you would have to set VVT-timing, ignition timing etc etc etc yourself.
You can also get Greddy E-manage or Apexi PowerFC, but if you are running standard I don't think there's that much to gain

Ya ive seen a lot of posts about the Apexi. I guess the best way to go is just modify the current ecu or adjust the fuel management system. Is there that much of a gain with the FC?

I meant overall I don't think there is much to gain.
If you have a dyno and know exactly what you are doing you might get your engine to run a bit smoother and smoothen out the torque and/or powercurve.

If you want more power, get the c2power Turbokit, it comes with the greddy-emanage smile
