So this is my first Toyota car that i have done work on, My question is, when boosting a 2005 Scion Tc how are you guys going about tuning the cars. On low boost cars (under 10lbs) are you able to piggy back the ECU? Also on higher boost what programs are you using? No hondata that works on the Scion or carburetor hahah :lol:. thanks for all the help guys/girls.

For piggyback ECU the only ones worth using are the Emanage Ultimate(its what I use) and the AEM FIC. Higher boost programs? I dont know what you are asking as far as hondata the only thing that is similiar is the Dezod/APR unit I dont really know anyone running it atleast on the forums... there are standalones Hydra, Haltech, AEM, and PROEFI. Hydra and PROEFI are the only ones backed through the actual company making the unit. AEM EMS is modified unit made to work with the tc and you have to get through DEZOD im not sure if you can get warranty through DEZOD or not. The Haltech unit is made through Ptuning dont know how that works either with warranty. Either way if you're looking to boost I'd stick with Ptuning and Dezod for your needs both are VERY reputable companies and both have Excellent customer support

I'd stay away from unichip. I didnt mention that or the emanage blue for specific reasons. The emanage blue is just crap to be honest with you has less tuning capalities than the other units. The unichip its not that its a bad unit Bluesciontc ran it for a loooong time with good success but finding a tuner that tunes it is VERY hard. Then finding a tuner that is actually good and has experience with the tc is even harder.

Ahh I see. Is there any reason AEM doesnt release a tC specific unit?

nuf said.... i would like to add that the FIC is POS... but good enough for low boost and simpler applications. if u want a more options and control. EMU is the best :D

unichip is also good. but.........________
