what, and how, does this ECU mod work for SRT intakes? I'm gonna buy an Area51 intake with the ECU mod, but am not sure on what the ECU mod is and how it works, or how its installed....been curious about it for awhile, and its time for some more power, so someone please let me know...thanks...

soybomb amongst a few others can tell you more about the Area51 with black box ECU....considered the best intake on a 2001 IS before the SRT intake came along...

I suggest doing a search....both intakes have been discussed a million times in the past few years...

alright got it- but- is the ECU piggy back actually a piggy back like the S-AFC, or is it just a sensor that attaches to the stock ECU, or an actual black box like the ECU, or a flying monkey, or what?... :D

its a box that was a hard wired set afc type controler..
think of it like this. you wired in you afc tuned it and then tucked it underyour dash and cant adjust it. im not saying it bad. there was a lot of time and tuning put into setting that up compare to other devices. it a easy "tune". be warned it was made to go with the intake. for best perforance. plus its only for the 01's the o2 have different mapping.
