Hi all,

I've just removed glove box to have a look at my ecu and find out if i did have a Ralliart one or not, I know these start with RA_____ , Its been bugging me ever since i got 362BHP with only filter and exhaust @ 1.1 Bar. Well anyway my part number is

MR 420403
E2T73180

Is this just standard or is it from a later MR model? :confused:

Cheers

Davie

No, it's not from an MR, after the Evo 7 all the plugs for the loom are different.

The wiring looks totally intact so the plugs haven' been butuchered to fit, can't be from later evo MR then. So is this just a standard ecu then? Do they start with this MR _____? :confused:

Firstly sorry for hijacking this thread.


Just clicked on your sig burgers, am I right in thinking that this is a program for re mapping an oem ecu?
If so what else is required to do this myself ?
Is this something I should be trying myself?

Any advice on this would greatfully received.

Hi

Yes this is software to re-flash the ECU, you will need a cable like this Tactix (http://www.tactrix.com/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=34) a laptop and you really really should get a wideband like this (http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/products/lc1.php) .There is also some free logging software avaliable from here (http://www.aktivematrix.com/forum/) . As long as you are OK on a PC, like you can download and install programs and remember where you put files, are methodical, prepared to take things slowly, there is no reason you can't do this, you might even enjoy it a bit. Start your own thread if you like, asking how it's done, and I'm sure you'll get all maner of helpful people offering advice.

cheers mate, well at least that clears that up, :cry: just was hoping that could explain having made decent power at recent rolling road day, was hoping to find a ralliart ecu or some thing. what is boost cut then on standard ecu in psi ( thats what may gauge reads) :)
