Lightbulb Stock ecu tune gen 1 v6

Hi all,

I am looking at options as far as tuning/flashing stock ecus. I had a magna that was flashed to remove the immobiliser.
I would like to try and have a play myself. Can I use open port to tune? Like you can with the magna ecus or is my ecu to archaic to flash.

I have a spare ecu that I can use. Any info would be great

Cheers
Dayne

I'm on aussiemagna forum aswel. I've contacted the guy that flashed my tf magna ecu to ask him about the pajero ecus. Just awaiting his reply.

He was able to flash anything after tf in the magna range which is 1997+ 6g72/74 with an open port cable and same software that people use to tune and flash evo's and subys, can't remember the name of it. Evoscan maybe...

I don't see why your 3.5 can't be done.

What year 3.5? I'll ask him about them

I'm pretty sure they would use the same protocols for there range of cars worldwide MUT-II I think it is that's why the evo guy is able to play with the legume too, I dare say he would be able to play with your paj too but maybe less willing as probably haven't had a play with pajero maps as much.

It's just about matching software to engine control sensors. When my immobilisor was flashed out he used a TJ magna ecu with TH software. Plugged right in just threw a barometric sensor cel because my magna didn't have the sensor, he came back a few days later with updated software and it was all good.

Hopefully there is a later model ecu that I can use that is easily flashable.
Will have to wait and see I guess.

Some slight improvement in fuel economy possibly a little more power, I have full exhaust and snorkel.
My main objective is to learn how to do it tho

Edit: and not have to pay someone $500 to do it

I could be wrong, ..... but it's a possibility the guy you're referring to is Steve Knight of SKR...... he's Ex MMAL powertrain guy and I know he has done Lots of ECU work for the members of the Magna forum.

cheers,

Pug

the ECUs in gen1 and gen 2 Pajeros cannot be reflashed. only choice for those is going aftermarket like Haltech , Wolf , ETC.
same for the 3.5 DOHC engines .

basically , if not fitted with a second ( reflash ) connector , the ECU is not flashable.
