I get that, and I can understand your frustration. Still, at some point you have to update your plans and take the most effective course of action FROM THIS POINT. Best of luck.

The sad part is that a non-turbo, non-eprom ECU is not worth much.

Send it to me, I will only repair what is bad. If the only driver bad is that 1, and replacing the 2 "Rubycon" caps, the cost will be $15 plus $15 return shipping.

The breakdown is:

$10 for caps and cleaning
$5 for each driver

If I find another bad driver, they are $5 each.

Terry, I honestly appreciate what you are willing to do. If I cannot get more of a refund, I will just have to eat it. I do not feel safe putting this in the car, even with the driver(s) replaced. Something that blew up that bad concerns me enough where I wouldn't trust it ever again.

That was not the ECUs fault.

That will happen whenever an ISC coil shorts out.

No big deal.

The drivers blew up because of a shorted ISC. Don't blame the ECU for something that the ISC coils did. Let Terry fix it and install it, it'll be fine.

Seller is refunding the price of the ecu. I am willing to eat the shipping cost because I never asked him to open the ecu for inspection. 19psi, the seller, is a STAND UP guy! He was very impressive by posting the situation on TWO forums, asking what others would do in his case. He never talked down of me, only asking others of the ethics of the situation. AMAZING guy. This is not something that would stop me from buying from the seller again. Thank you Kai!
