    Question ECU Removal

    Can someone tell me the location of the ECU? i'm guessing it'll be around the scuttle area, any tips to save me a bit of time searching about will be great

    nope, all it will do is reset it back to factory values, it will then re learn settings and driving style next time you run it.
