NISMO Controller Upgrade

Thu Aug 29, 2013 8:15 pm

I read somewhere about a NISMO Controller module upgrade which helps extends range and with a bump in performance, can anyone one direct me to where this Controller Upgrade module could be purchased or a website with info on it.

Thanks

It will bump performance but its unlikely to extend range... I think it is something like $1,200 in Japan...

It's my understanding that it has two modes, like the OEM controller, and the Eco mode does extend range if used properly. That's not to say that someone alternating between both modes would get better range overall...

From my research, it's only avalible in Japan and must be dealer installed. :x

Impressive! IMO, 1 second off of its 0-60 times would be totally worth the $1385. That increase there would make a significant improvement in its ability as an auto-Xer. Too bad it's not gonna be a DIY mod here for a while if ever.
