FK8 / FL5 / DE5 Bosch ECU Cloning w/ Unlocking
"You did it. You crazy son of a b*%$&, you did it!"
Want to preserve your sacred, unmodified, locked factory ECU for certain "purposes"... but also want to enjoy the fruits of reflashing and tuning your FK8 / FL5 Civic Type R or DE5 Integra Type S?
We can now extract all data from your original, locked Bosch ECU and transfer that information onto another donor ECU that's unlocked and ready to flash!
You can source a donor ECU new or used. The original ECU will remain unmodified, and your clone donor ECU will be an exact copy, except unlocked and ready to plug in and do as you please.
FK8's should only be cloned to a donor FK8 ECU of the same part number as the original as of right now (early December 2023, will update if this changes).
FL5 and DE5 donor ECU's are interchangeable. They can be cross-cloned with no problem. As of this moment (early December 2023, will update if this changes), the Integra Type S ECU (37820-6PV-A03) is significantly less expensive when purchased new from an Acura dealer than the FL5 Civic Type R ECU (37820-66V-A03), if available.
Price includes standard ground return shipping. Faster options are available at additional cost.
Please send both ECU's (removed from the black plastic holder and labelled clearly as to which ECU is the original and which is the new donor to be unlocked) to:
1787 W. Trindle Road
Building A Suite 800
Carlisle, PA 17015
Be sure to include a copy of your invoice, along with your contact/return shipping information. Shipping to us is your responsibility (not included in pricing).
IF YOU SHIP ANY ECU STILL INSIDE THE BLACK PLASTIC CONTAINER, THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL $50 CHARGE TO COVER THE LARGER PACKAGE IT REQUIRES. YOUR ECUs WILL NOT SHIP BACK UNTIL THIS IS PAID.
Shipment of the ECUs to us is your responsibility. Ensure that you protect the ECUs when packing. Pack securely, with a cushioning element of some sort, minimizing free space in the package. Take special care around the plastic connector area of the ECUs.
Applicable only to U.S. mailing addresses.
If you would like the ECUs to be shipped back out the same day they arrive, ensure you ship to us with an option that delivers early in the business day. It is advised to require a signature to ensure we have received it. It's also wise to touch base via e-mail to ensure we are able to receive your package in the timeframe you're interested in.
