your from Urbana? I'm from Alburnett!!!!

Anyway, did you buy a used ECU or a rebuilt one? It also could be the crankangle sensor/distributor.

I sent him a damaged one that came out of a running car, I'm thinking it may have gone bad.
Gvr4s don't have crankangle sensors or distributors, their engines are setup like 1g dsms. I told him to check the cas, ignitor, and coilpacks, as well as the ecu.

Really? A 1G ECU Bad? You don't say!!!

Yea, I couldn't remember if they call them crankangle or camshaft angle.
