by saying computer, you mean ECU.

if its not under warranty and theyre not gonna take care of it, i say buy a ECU second hand. a lot of ppl have their ECU for sale since they put powerFC.

Yah dude. Thats EXACTLY what happened to me and my wife. We would be driving around. CEL Comes on and bam it just stops and doesnt move. SO we brought our celica to the dealer and they ended up putting a 1,000 Dollar ECU into the Celica. NOW there telling us its the fuse box. wonderfull. Hopefully its covered under the warranty
