    How 2 change the ecu?

    Looking to change the ecu on the motor as I think thats where the problem is....Other than this what else do I need to change to make it work with the car....My engine code is x18xe1 so obviously I need an ecu of an astra with the same engine code.....Anything else?

    If your ECU has gone check out www.ecutesting.com . They fixed the ECU on my x18xe1 2 years ago and still working fine, cost me £250 all in, saved me loads of hassle, just unplugged mine, posted it to them, then got it back and just plugged it in again.
