I'm not sure if that odbII problem applies to all KA24DE ecu's as my s13 is odbI as far as I can tell. I also have 2 different KA24DE ecus lying around, one numbered 24, the other 28 (I think, Its late and I'm getting tired) So I'll check out if there is a difference in the main chip layout.
I want to keep looking into this, as I think I would like this over such a thing as an e-manage, and I don't want to shell out 2 grand of the AEM EMS.-Lech
