ECU
Since our ECUs are not flashable/programmable, is there a way to rewrite them, or possibly even get a company to make a different one? Does that make sense?

Like how much money. I remember someone talking about how they know people that can work wonders with this sort of thing. Maybe I will talk to my dad (an engineer) he may know some people or something.

It probably be cheaper in the long run to get a stand-alone programmable ECU ... so you can mess with it while you tune grin that's my $0.02

Greddy makes that. You think that that will work? Everyone says our shit can't be flashed or whatever. So I figured we could just get a brand spnakin new tricked out one.
