OEM and aftermarket ECUs

Here is a discussion on a 4age 20v when fitted with a piggyback ecu and some dyno tuning.

Some proof that, although Toyota spends a gazilion dollars on tuning, there is still some room for improvement.

It's just like anything that has a wide parameter set, it can never do one thing well. So if you reduce this parameter set, ie only run 98, make sure you dont have dirty air and fuel filter etc, you wil be able to significantly optimise the system.
