    cracking the ecu

    From what I have read..the ecu chipset in our ecu is not reflashable.
    But....the chip could be removed and replaced if the map can be cracked..modified and put on a new chip.
    Anyone done this yet?

    DSM ECUs are very similar to our trucks' ECUs. Same Sirius engine family.

    you would use the tuner pro software and the moates ostrich to modify the ecu to your needs http://www.tunerpro.net/ http://www.moates.net/ostrich-20-the....html?cPath=95 http://www.ebay.com/itm/1985-1988-19...a34c63&vxp=mtr

    How does the Ostrich work with Mitsubishi? You need a GM MAF?

    the software you need is not for the ostritch, Tunerpro is what you use to make changes to the ecu

    The guys at DSMLink did my custom e-Proms, they do the eclipse stuff. I only had injector sizes and rpm limits changed, before I went to a AEM unit.

    It would be nice to able to adjust my own fuel trim..knock and mapping . When you send it out you aren't data logging..it would be a map based on guesses.

    Check out Apexi Power FC for early Evos. Should work.
