Thumbs up Restarting ECU

Do I have to restart the computer in order to the computer read all my mods ?



How do I restart the comp, simply disconnecting the battery or I have to do something else? Thanks a lot.

yes, disconnect the battery for a few minutes, then reconnect, and do six WOT pulls (on an onramp) and turn it off after each time.

Did you do the mods before or after the SC and DiabloSport?

If before, you shouldn't have to do anything. IF after, you'll have to call DiabloSport.

What did you do?

I installed the SC and then put the diablo sport that came with it, but I never restart the comp 5-6 times. But before the SC I put the exhaust system and I never restart the comp either. All your tips will be deeply appreciated. Thanks one more time.

Ok then, you don't need to do anything. The chip takes care of it.

No I havenít done that yet, but remember I still need to do something else to this supercharge. I need to put the injectors that came with the SC. The Procharge Company told me about a place in NJ (IDA auto motor) where they can put them but they charge $85 per hour, which is not worth it just to put the 42lb injectors. By the way will be worth it to change the stock injectors for those 42lb, how much power I am losing without them? Thanks a lot for your help.

You REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need the 42lb injectors, you're running lean without 'em, and you can burn pistons, scorch rings, & cause ALL KINDS of problems when you run lean.

I thought that putting the 42lb injectors was simple work u know, but the thing is the car doesnít run with them so I have to mess with the comp. I will call one more time and ask them to explain to me what to do, and not to send me to a place that charges me almost $1000. Thanks and if u know how can I install them I will be very please if you tell me.

Eh, it takes a while to explain,

Best bet is to pick up a Haynes manual at O'Reilley's or Autozone, or NAPA ..

It'll have pics, and detailed instructions, plus troubleshooting .. . and it tells you what tools you'll need.

It only costs 12 dollars

Well I decide to put the Diablo sport one more time, the one that came with the SC and I put it like twice and now I feel the car is faster :eyepoppin maybe it was not tune correctly in the first place. So any ways I just want to know if I can put the diablo as many times I want, and if I do this process over and over will not harm my car. Thanks one more time.

you have to keep it IN AT ALL TIMES, as long as you have the SC unit hooked up, or you're gonna have a dead engine fast!

The other chip was probably interfering with the fuel maps.

You also have to have the 42lb injectors in, too!
