Simple question really. Where can I buy a ECU to send for a reflash? I've checked ebay and other websites, but I can't seem to find one for the life of me. Also, what are the specifications I need? Does it have to be the same year as my car, 3.8l, etc.

Thanks,
Esints

They're expensive. Something like 300 dollars if I remember. I've been told a few times that I can get them "on the cheap" elsewhere.

Dealership prices are always relatively high. Asking them what they want won't change how I feel about spending 300 dollars on an ECU. I'll take your answers as, "300 dollars is the best price you can get."

Thanks for the quick responses,

It really is, even buying through my shop, $656.01 for a 3.8 ECU.

The other advantage of going through a tuner is matching your current ECU software version to the new one. This will help avoid immobilizer and other issues running a version your car was not setup with.

Ah, if that's the case. Then I'll probably just spend the extra money! Thanks for a reasonable answer, it's greatly appreciated!

I have a 2010 3.8 manual with push start.... Is it just plug and play and how much?
Not necessarily. You need to verify the version and immobilizer or it will trip and the car won't start.
