Modern factory Engine Control Units (ECU) come equipped with an advanced engine immobiliser function in order to deter theft of the vehicle. These immobiliser functions have to be defeated in order to successfully transplant a modern engine into another vehicle.
Our Immobiliser defeat code allows the use of the stock ECU without the added cost and complexity that is normally involved in such an engine transplant or conversion. Using the standard ECU means you retain the factory safety parameters and on later FSI vehicles is the only way to run the FSI setup. The only other options are to either use costly aftermarket management systems or to install the donor vehicle's instrument cluster and associated immobiliser components.
This product is only available in conjunction with our performance software upgrade and the ECU will need to be sent to one of our facilities via your local Revo dealer or mailed directly to us.
The cost of the immobiliser defeat code is charged in addition of the relevant performance software cost.
Currently available for the Bosch ME7 and MED9 petrol ECUs only, for any other requests please speak to our technical support team.
