XFI Back To Stock ECM-Help Needed
« on: January 01 2020, 08:00:09 PM »

I'm fairly certain I'm gonna be returning an XFI car back to a stock ECM. I'm tired of locals who don't their asses from holes in the ground about these cars telling others they need cool guy parts when their own cars are turds and are so fukn slow they can't get outta their own way. Rant over.


Okay, I assume XFI is spliced into the ECM harness. Can I remove the XFI wiring and reattach the ECM wires together. TIA.

Brad last year I pulled apart my Gen 2 system to install the Axis under the hood & out of all the wires only 1 was snipped & hardwired into the harness the rest were just the wire taps which I removed & taped up for safety. I Assume the XFI is probably a mix of both so they should be the same I would think?

Thanks Dave. The wires are colour coded...so at worst...I'll have to solder a few together. I think. I'll find out soon enuf.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

If you are lucky it has an adapter harness.
