It has been flashed back to normal with AP V3 but did die trying to get it home. Which it was towed to my house. I知 trying to get info as to what to be aware of. I知 under 60k so the power train is covered but I知 sketchy on the ecu part... please advise!!!
first; this is in the wrong section.

second; yes they can tell as I believe the ignition count resets to 0 when you flash the ECU. It's also the first thing they will check being that it's an engine failure.

third; even if they somehow miss that it was flashed, any competent tech can tell when bolts are removed/replaced for the most common mods. they'll see the nicks from the socket, or if you put new ones on, they'll see that they're too new for the age of the car.

bring it in, and see what happens; don't offer anymore information than they ask you.
