Re: ECU Modification

WOW I wouldnt touch this with a bargepole but that is a personal opinion. You cant compare this with either a rich or robou mod. The last few lines of the advert indicate that to run this you have to invest in some other hardware. If like ADe you are adept at working with engines and high performanc...

Re: Starter Motor Replacement - how complex?

Look up " stone age technology " for info on a starter button . Personally I would just run a wire to the starter motor and see what happens . if nothing then your problem lies in the starter motor. If it starts you have the choice of a starter button or delving deeper into your problem. from an ear...
