    i don't think a p73 or the p28 comes with immobilsers either.

    ECU with immobilisers are scrap anyway, you need key, clocks and matching ECU from the same car for them to work

    I think you can use the JDM teg ECU cos i dnt think the come immoblised,correct me if am wrong though .

    so smilley what do you think i should do

    u can use p73 till u get it mapped with a 0bd1 ECU

    i'm confused now, do you want one with or without a immobiliser?

    either way i would use a p28, or p30 with a c4 base map on it, and then go have it live mapped.

    basically i just need an ECU that will work with my engine.i got a p9k ECU with mine but i can't use that as i dnt have the keys or immobliser ring.

    i was just thinking if theirs 1 i could take off another car and use .

    thats what i though, but your first post read like you didnt want to use your ECU as it had no working immobiliser.

    anyway see my post above for what i'd do.

    sorry for the confusion m8 .

    looks like the best thing would be to get it mapped on a p28 or p30.

    would it be ok to run a p73 or any other ECU temporarily until i get it live mapped

    PM coming your way westy :Smile:
