HOW TO: Install Apexi Power FC

Difficulty - Easy

Time - Approximately 1min

Tools - 10mm socket
_______________________________________________________________________________

First, remove these 2 10mm bolts...

Step 2 remove the wiring harnesses...

(the far left arrow shows a blue harness. Under this harness is a 10mm bolt holding the stock ecu in. you need to remove itbut the power fc doesnt need it.)

Here's a view of the ECU after it's been removed. The arrow shows where the hidden 10mm comes from...

now you just slap in the power fc and you're good togo.

Once the power fc is installed let the car idle for 5 minutes with NOTHING on inside the car. (no stereo, no dome light, nothing)

After that turn on the AC and let it idle for another 5 minutes.


then enjoy your new ECU wave
