  • Question
    The instructions say I need to wire the main power and ground wire directly to the Battery. Is that really that important and can I hook it up someplace else like a distribution lug, starter solenoid or kill switch?
    Answer
    Yes it is very important. Connecting them directly to the battery is one of the most important steps of the installation. Failure to follow any installation instructions as minor as they may seem can result in performance issues including damage that will not be covered under warranty.

  • Question
    Where do I send my ECU to have it repaired?
    Answer
    Unfortunately we cannot repair the ECU because it is Potted. Potting the ecu provides several benefits. The down side is that a potted ECU cannot be repaired if it is damaged due to improper installation. Always read the instruction and follow proper installation procedures to avoid ECU damage. If you damage the USB port by pulling the cable out of the connector on the back of the ECU we may be able to repair it. Contact a tech service representative for more information pertaining to a damaged USB port.
