I ordered my ECU and sent in my spare 99 ECU as core exchange. They sent it back and said they would no longer take 98+ ECUs as core for the 95-97 ECU.
I spoke to Jim and he said that the development was not finished this winter so it won't be worked on again until next winter.

Doesn't that suck, I was so looking forward to 7800rpm. Anybody got a spare 95-97 stock ECU?

Here is what you do call Auto Gator @ 800-252-6662 and order a used 95-97 stock ECU. It is for $225. I just did that today. I will send the ECU to JWT to get it reprogrammed to work with the C3 cams that I will be getting soon.

Man 98-99 owners are really ****ed. No LSD and all this extra $$ and effort to get a stinking ECU.

Damn... I must have been one of the lucky ones. JWT took my stock ECU for a core (I must have been the last one they accepted.) And the only extra I had to pay was for some solder and some heat-shrink tubing (less than 5 bucks.) Granted, I have yet to purchase a new rear o2 sensor and replaced the EGR solenoid valve... But the MIL doesn't bother me one bit, and I don't have to get the car smogged until next year.
I didn't realize how much I was missing without the VLSD until I started autocrossing the NX, though. Sheesh... No VLSD does suck!

Oh yeah? Well try it with a turbo! Man I could gain SOOOO much time with an LSD. I found myself working to "straighten out" the course as much as I could so I could have the wheel straight at 12 o'clock so I could utilize my power. If I had the wheel at 2 o'clock or so I had to baby the power so so much. Anyone know of a used 95-97 5 speed tranny around?

I have tried it with a turbo. It was a '97 Eclipse GS-T that I drove during fun runs. It had a Turbonetics Super-60 turbo (aka Super Sucky... similar to a T28)... The car has got to have been making 250hp. I was a good 3-4 seconds faster in that car than in my VLSD-less SE-R. I could only imagine how much better that car is now, now that it's equipped with a Quaife LSD.
