So, relevant questions here are:
1) Who has done this, and what has your experience with it been like?
2) What systems are out there, and how do you choose between them?
3) How/where do you get help if you need it?

This is just the line I am going down myself. it seems to me to be much more sense than going the zetec route.
I have spoken to two separate people at the Donnington show who have done this on plus2s. Their opinion was that it had transformed the car.no starting problems, smooth acceleration, more power and also ran much cooler presumably because the mixture/timing was correct. Just like a modern car!
My current research seems to indicate that Emerald are the ecu to use, you can use a welded-up dizzy with a lumenition optical sensor which is handy although a crank sensor may be better. Jenvey throttle bodies are better than lumenition ones with appropriate fuel rail etc. A swirl pot from Spyder or car builder solutions with pump and hp lines and a lambda sensor.
You then need a couple of hours on a rolling road.
I would reccomend you look at the Emerald cams site they have a good overview and Dave Walker writes in Practical Performance car monthly again worth a look.
It may be worth a personal chat if so [email protected]

Apparentlty there was a magazine article explaining how to turn 40 DCOE's into throttle bodies.
That sound like something I would try. Has anyone seen the article?
