ECU STAGE 1 Dilemma
 
hey guys, yesterday i decided to install the stage 1 chip in my SVX. I opened the ECU box as required in the instructions but found out that the white sticker on the ROM reads something like F03........ or F30..... (sorry I forgot) instead of F23AYH06 as stated by ECUtune.... is it normal? or is it just me? after an hour of scratching my head, i decided to install it.. after that drove my car, everything was normal, i didn't feel much boost at first but then the power appeared clearly. the lag was minimizing and today i felt the real thing more and more...
am i getting full power of that chip? does the number really matter on the ROM? well i am feeling some kick out of it so far, but i need to know some experts' opinions about the thing... Longassname? anyone?

It's fine. As long as the tan resistor was cut and the check engine light comes on when you turn the key on then it's working fine.

It will get progressively better every time you drive it. :D

yeah but i thought it won't work or even burn my ECU... my ROMs read other than described by ECUtune... they are totally different, something like F0301...01 , i was wondering, how did it work?

Could it be because you do not have a US model?
Mabey you could try the European forum to see if they have different #'s also. Most likely it's the same ROM, just a different part #.

My whole car is a dilemma! it comes from Saudi Arabia, cars over there are US specs, for example it has yellow corners like US cars, but a european/australian heart (35/65 AWD ratio)... SVX's sold in Lebanon have white corners like JDM cars...

Ecutune has stressed to check the number on the ROM as F23....., and through our email, he told me that it may be that this chip doesn't work on my car specs, i took the risk and bought it anyway not knowing if it does an effect or so.... the outcome? it works like a charm....

for all the guys outside US not certain that this chip will work, i assure them it does! buy with confidence!!!

Hey Dan this is a little off topic, but could you put a pic of your car in your locker at this angle...

oops

if you can send the rom from your car to us I can read it and see what EXACTLY is different between the US software and your version. That won't necessarily tell us about the European or Australian SVX's but it's still a step forward in learning the differences in software between countries.

No no...send it to me. I can install it and after 6, 7, even 24 months of rigorous testing, I will give you a full report



:D

Longass, if i take the ROM out of my car, how would i drive it then? push it? what i can say is that the chip works perfectly... so be confident guys (outside US) about it...
I can give you the numbers on the ROMs the white sticker F03.... and the other three ROMs beside it...

Why is that? Sorry for asking...

I hope you're not too sensitive about constructive criticism :( , but I wanted to photoshop off the graphics and add a jdm wing and k-staff bumper.
