Count me in! From what Michael said, seems like the cost will be somewhat greater than $179 as we'll need to cover the cost of development for the OBDII ECUs.

P.S. If not a lot of people sign-up, and the cost of the $600+ part is shared by a few people, the price may be a little out of my reach until August. Hopefully we'll be able to get the price down to <$300. Want to be completely upfront about this from the start.

Yes, I want one too. Michael, make sure you don't use a OBDII ecu from California as they have a different code. My car was first sold in Oregon so I should be alright.

sign up folks! depending on whether i can get a Stage1/Stage3 has a direct effect on how long i'm keeping this car. i realize that i really need more power than the 'ol SVX is providing. it just isn't giving me that warm fuzzy feeling inside.

alltrac and Landshark, could either of you take some pics of the inside of your OBDII ECU and send it to Longassname? I literally spent the entire day working on my car with newsvx, Ron Mummert and svxcess and didn't get time to take any pics.

I know these pics can really help Michael in determining whether our ECU's will match up with the OBDI cars...

Thanks!

-Chike

P.S. As you'll see in the Tech forum, my AWD is broken, and I'll need to fix this first before buying the ECU upgrade. It shouldn't pose too big of an issue, but is an added expense I'll need to take care of ASAP!

Go to Immortal_Suby's locker. He has pics on the ECU crush mod. It'll show pics on how to remove the ECU.

I have no metric tools which is my biggest barrier in being able to take the pics...and when I was at newsvx's place this weekend, I literally had no time to pull my ECU.

Mileage really doesn't matter for the part I need...
