#1 the bigport AFM isn't compatible with the GZE ecu
#2 there is a significant difference in the wiring lf and electronics of the GZE ecu - it's not a simple "plug in and use" type of situation
#3 you will need to, at the VERY least use a knock sensor with the GZE ecu as well
#4 the gze ecu controls the supercharger relay in a stock setup - it will turn the s/c off when it feels it's necessary. Manually using a switch to turn it on and off could have negative effects.
I ran a bigport stock block with all of the ae101 gze components (well, with a bigport gze manifold) running on megasquirt. The way it was tuned I was able to get around 40mpg on the freeway with the s/c off and was able to walk away from stock or even modded gze's and 20v's. (That motor gave way to a rod bearing, though).
As for previous comments - a map is a 2 dimensional plot.... where there is the MAP reading vs rpm (not accounting for sensor factors). If you understand how you can tune the map safely to run both with the s/c on and off to achieve both good mileage and performance (because per this plotting... load vs rpm is going to be read differently between boost and vacuum and as such would result in a different pulsewidth).
As I said earlier... if you want to safely run a stock bigport with an SC12 you will need quality fuel control.
