Your parting your car out because the ecu went bad? Why not use this as a sign that you should be running Megasquirt? How did you verify the ecu is the problem?

If you sell your SC, your ECU will still be bad. Confused. ??

I think he is selling the supercharger to get funding to repair the car.

So now you're spamming the other threads so you can put this junk in the for sale section?

Yes because he doesnt want to install a good ecu that would solve his problems for good.

True i dont want to install a new ecu. I bought the car with the system link set up in it already which was garbage. Personally i would have gone megasquirt from the beginning, seems how its a much better ecu. No i am not spamming the forum to get parts sold I am apart of another miata forum and have decided to join this one because it deals with specifics in boosted applications so i figured my luck would be better selling it here. Also i verified it was the ecu because i took it apart and saw that a few capacitors were fried as well as parts of the circuit board. Tripl88a the supercharger is not junk the ecu is.... im not looking to spend a couple grand on tuning and a new ecu so I am reverting the car back to stock.

It takes couple of grand to tune an ecu?

Most of us do it for free by learning how to do it and then the rest of us go on a dyno which is 100 bucks.
