I started off with FTECU, I bought the software and both bike harness and bench harness and the quick-shift, I also purchased a Daytona Systems AFR monitor so I could log the AFR and tune accordingly.
I found the FTECU frustrating, there were never the updates they promised (such as fuel cut - promised 2 years ago), unreliability of flashing (would sometimes take ages or multiple attempts to connect) and no live data for autotuning and the logs didn't contain data such as which map, what gear etc - but I still managed to produce a nice running fast ECU.
I sold that flashed ECU and quick-shiftECU and bought another along with the Woolich software along with autotune and racetools.
The Woolich system is far superior and more polished, always connects instantly and the autotune mostly works really well and it has the fuel cut.
I flashed 2 GSXS1000 with FTECU and 3 GSXS1000 with Woolich ( as well as 2 GSXR1000 L7 and a Z300)
I love having the ability to mod the bike, then go for a run and look at the differences. The autotune is good but you need to learn how to read it and not accept everything at face value.
Another advantage is having the SDS integrated so I can read codes and reset them
Downsides, Woolich themselves don't offer any tuned maps (except mapshare) and sometimes when there are a lot of updates the software can take an age to open
Bike currently: Is incredibly fast and smooth, I even added a faster throttle
as I managed to eliminate 99% of the the snatchy throttle
- home made tuned headers
