have 300 2 spend what should i get

ok so i just got my clutch and flywheel and i still have 300 left over. im thinking of getting a chipped ecu to tune my car, the only thing is there are no tuners in my area and id would have 2 be a while b4 i can get an actual tune. or i was thuinking of getting an msd control box and finnaly finishing my ignition, the only problem is idk what control box is rigth 4 me,

the car is my dd so i do want it reliable still. only mods on it are intake, exhaust, ngk iridiums, msd cap and rotor, coolant bypass, egr delete (still have chek engine light on thats y i want ecu), energy bushings on the whole front end (waitin 2 change clutch and will do motor inserts),and will have cc stage 2 clutch and fidanza 8lb fly as soon as they come in. so what would be the best route 4 me. oh and by the way i dnt wanna go lower or anything like that.

Re: have 300 2 spend what should i get

looking for an ecu? phearable.net!

if vtec its 175 plus shippin
if not i think its 150 plus shipping,
shipping is 20.
and very reliable

but, i would say, save the money.. i know how eagerness to spend is!

Re: have 300 2 spend what should i get

odds are... MSD is a huge waste of money for your system. Unless your stock ignition has some serious issues, a MSD is realistically just a pretty box. No benefits to be had from it.

And, if you are insistent on getting an ignition box... Look into another company's products.

Dude, it's your car and your money, buy what you want.

The only thing is, like BlueLude said...the MSD ignition is a waste. The stock ignition is FINE, even on boosted motors making pretty good numbers. But if you just want a pretty box in your bay, go for it.

Re: have 300 2 spend what should i get

U should buy a hooker!

I agree about the msd being a waste.. Ur stock ignition is sufficent enough for ur setup..

If u wanna get a ecu phearable.net is a good place to go.. I believe I bought my injectors from them

if ur really itching to buy something for ur lude tho I have a brand new hi flow fuel rail I'll sell u for cheaper than anywhere on the Internet.. I also have a bunch of other 4th gen things for sale
