Does anyone here have video on removing the ECU to be shipped to Hondata for a reflash. I didnt quite understand the step by step instruction on clubrsx. Its to short.

The last thing I wanna do is unscrew the wrong bolt or remove the wrong wire. Please help.

Thanks,
Rad

Dude, its really easy have some confidence on yourself. Its a 15 min job tops. The toughest part is to disconnect the harness from the ecu because its hard to grab on them. Just unscrew the panel underneath the glove compartment. There you will see the ecu (its a rectangle thing). Then un bolt the ecu from its brackets, like three bolts, then remove the 3 harnesses from the ecu which is the toughest part of the whole process, but you will get it eventually. And thats it.

I don't think there are even any other bolts for you to remove. Just look at the ecu, and it should be pretty self-explanatory. I removed the bolts first, then unplugged the harnesses. Just don't completely remove the back bolt, all you have to do is loosen the back one. The ECU will slide right off the rear bolt. It actually took me longer to get the immobilizer out than the ECU.

My copmputer should be at Hondata today, back tommorow. Moroso on wednesday, with Hondata and Nittos on the front. I'm having a hard time dealing with the 16.5 that I got last friday. So, I took measures to make sure it doesn't happen again... :laughing:

As for Moroso on a friday night....NEVER AGAIN! I got there around 7:45, and didn't get to run until almost midnight, 11:47 to be exact... :firemad: Just too many ppl. I guess you could treat it as more of a hang out than drag racing, just with a little break from socializing to scream down the track once in a while (or once, as was the case friday night). I'll stick to wednesdays thank you.
