you have to cut a wire... welll... one side of the wire is i think output or smthing like that and the engine is input i think... look at it this way... the schematics talk about 5 wires. but the r-ecu has 6. once yoou cut that wire you will have an additional one ;). i had trouble with that too... i actually didn't cut the wire and car shut down as soon as i started it.

hey, i got my intake installed with the ecu. Everything was running fine. The next day i go to start my car it stalled wen i gave it gas. So i leave the hood of my car up and start the car and take out the box with the ecu so it is set on the engine cover. I start up the car and it works fine. However, the check engine light goes on and the traction control flashes on and off. I already cut the wire that needed to be cut. Please help

the wiring is right cause the intake and everything works. However, the traction control keeps flashing on and off and the check engine light is on. Does that mean i need to get the ECU tuned?

you probably wired it wrong your intake is gona work regardless of the recu install its jsut pulling vacum so if you head the vacum cleaner sound and that's whats making you think your intake is working and you wired it correctly then you are wrong, it would do that without the recu

heres a diagram MAKE SURE YOU USE THE RIGHT ONE FOR YOUR YEAR CAR and match the color of the wires(2001, or 2002+)

I mean... the intake and everything seemed to work. Then all the sudden it stopped working. I opened the box where the chip was in and there is a green light that goes on. Then there is also a red light that blinks on and off. Does that mean the wiring is wrong?

I think i found out the problem. It is something to do with the wiring. I am getting pictures up sometime tonite, however i dont know how well they are going to come out. When it says sensor 1 input, sensor 1 output wutt does that mean? It says the input goes to the engine? what does that mean? I think that is myproblem.
