How-to flash your ECU using ECUFLASH

I created a short video for newbies wanting to learn how to flash their ECU with the new image that they have received from jestrtuning@gmail.com. I wasn't sure exactly how to do it myself and this video should make it clear to all on how to complete this task. Here's the link: click here

Helpful links: Purchase Jestrtuning M1 Flash , Download EcuFlash , Purchase Tactrix cable , Restrictor pill removal after new flash

FAQs about reflashing Evo IXs with the Jestrtuning M1
1. How much does the M1 flash cost?
$150 USD payable to jestrtuning@gmail.com via PayPal

2. My car is bone stock and I'm located in CA with 91 octane gas. How much added HP/TQ can I expect with this reflash?
Usually a minimum of 20 hp and 30 tq can be gained from a flash

3. Will removing the restrictor pill damage my engine?
No

4. Will there be uncontrollable spikes in boost as a result of removing the restrictor pill?
Any spikes can be compensated for in the boost maps. The current tune is setup for pill removal.

5. How do I remove the restrictor pill?
See this thread: HOW TO - Control boost using ECUFLash and the stock boost solenoid

6. Where do I get the cable to connect to my car's computer, the M1 flash, contact jestrtuning?
See Helpful links above.

7. How easy is this modification to do?
It's so easy even a caveman can do it!



Here's photos of where to connect the tactrix cable that I purchased from tactrix.com

A reflash overwrites the factory instructions in the ECU with instructions that someone has created to make the car run faster and stronger. Just like when your computer updates itself to run better.
