theres a shop near me that can do it for around 1000k bucks.. but im on a budget and would like to be able to do it my self and tune it my self. i am a machinist so i have good mechanical skill level. my questions are
1. i know ill need a 98-99 montero ecu
2. does it matter which montero 3.5L, 3.0?
3. does someone have a write up of what i would need to change on the ecu to make it work in my car
4. and what part are needed to flash
5. what software to use
ive done alot of reading but i was hoping a few of you guys would be be able to point me in the right direction. or if i should just pay the shop to do.
yes my spelling is bad.. im at work limited time to correct
Read the threads on flashing the ecu. You will need to by the adapter cable for the 3 to 4 prong difference. Also the cable for flashing and the software.
Whatever you do, do not pay the shop to do it. Unless they are on this site they will have no clue how to do this. That is not a guess. Post up the guys screen name who says he can do it.......
This is a recent advancement on this platform. If he thinks he can do this because he's tuned an STI or DSM, he is confused.
