ASA / AA hybrid SC setup

This may sound dumb, but some of the local tuner shops have been telling me that the hardest part of making an SC kit work properly is to actually re-program the ECU/EMS/DME (whatever) with proper software. Seems that AA actually does this, while ASA uses a piggyback module.

So, my point being, I like the ASA blower better than the Rotrex, but AA seems to have done more work on the software side.

Wonder if the AA software could adapt to the ASA charger given it's different boost profile?

Dumb idea?

Search for old threads by 'Cabrioguy'. Also over on Bimmerforums FI forum. He did that exact thing. ASA s/c, tuned by AA...Ahh, living in Miami does have its benefits!

Where did you get this information from?

I am still waiting for renn-sport to have the software available for my kit so that I can upgrade my pulley and injectors.

From Samir at the rennsport forum:

"You can keep the TB, that will work fine.

You will need to revert the software back to stock for the SK1, the SK2 will have it's own software."

Search for threads by 'Cabrioguy'. I know for a fact that he had AA tune it some more. Maybe AA didn't do all the tuning, but they did some. I was in constant talk with him because at that time, I was going to get ASA s/c..
Hope this helps..

Just got off the phone with Sam at rennsport, and confirmed the SK1 is a piggyback (ASAtronic). For the SK2, they're trying to do a fully programmed ECU, but that's far easier said than done.
