Cobb does the same thing on 04+ cars, the big difference is the customer owns a hand held and can remove it anytime he wants. EcuTek doesn't have a handheld, just a flash cable that can be purchased by the one ever buys them. So when they want to switch or remove they need to find a Ecutek dealer.

02-03 ecus are the same, no one has ever been able to explain what's different about them.

But like I said before, if you have a car and need Ecutek taken off let me know and I'll help you out the best I can.

Have any help for a bricked ecu ??? The wrong map from a different model
was loaded now it wont start and It will not let me load the right map in.
All it says is error when I try to load new map in. Working on a 06 WRX
