Yes the ESL can do twin maps. The quality of the components on a JECS ECU are excellent.

I did think of a Simtek for the custard car,but optted for the ESL @ 550 fitted and mapped plus 70 quid for a 3 port ... Purly as I wasn't going to shuv 400+ bhp through it.
From what I read I think the ESL is a cheapier unit but in theory does the same thing.
I heard it made 349bhp Jimmy. Pretty good for the spec I would say. All the Ver3/4 Imprezas have made between 340-350hp so far and all of them fairly stock.

If you wanted to shove 400, 500 or 600hp through it after that the ESL would have easily accommodated your spec. Any talk of it having an upper power limit is completely untrue.

There is no upper power limit on an ESL. Don't be fooled into spending more than you have to.
