Default reflash an ecu

i am new to the reflash thing, but my mods are fmic, downpipe, exhaust, intake and soon to have an uppipe. my question is, what companies will refalsh my ecu to support these mods because my car runs horrible without an upgrade of the ecu, i just put my factory intercooler back on today and it made a big difference for the good with the tmic. companies and prices would be very helpful.

Vishnu and TurboXS do Ecutek reflashing while Cobb has their AccessECU reflashing. You could also go the UTEC route if you're not done with your mods and plan on doing more in the future and want to tune it yourself. It's a good choice as you can download maps for your mods until you get tuned and you don't have to wait for your ECU to get shipped back to you.

Well I would suggest finding a local tuner if at all possible. This will give you less headaches in the end. It is hard to tune for a car that does not have a shelf map, especially for the EcuTeK.

Though if you want to play around with the tuning yourself, the UTEC is a great choice. It is proven reliable and there is a big support for the setup.

Work... ahhh... so tired.


Dont tune the utec yourself with out a delta dash or other way to tell what map the stock ecu is in. Also dont go with a utec unless you want to start playing with the ecu.

Cobb is the cheepest of the ecu reflashes, and with the acess port you can reflash yourself later if you want to go to a stage 2 or 3.
