Pretty much I just got done fixing my car. It was all set and done, until my ECU burnt out the shop that was helping me didn't have the proper equipment to reprogram it and such. i toke it to the dealership only to find out im stuck paying $1700.00 for the job. i have a couple days to let them know if i should fix or not. please let me know your thoughts, and or ideas. if you live in the oakland area of michigan, it would be highly appreciated for any referable people.

if the damage is just the ecu I'm like 90% sure you can just get a used ECU.
Just make sure the car you get the used ECU from is SAME as yours (auto, etc...)..
Not sure but you might have problems with your door locks, security, and ignition being that it is a new ECU.
I'm not sure though..
Either way, I would rather try to get a used ECU for $100 and try to swap it out and see if that works before having to shell out $1700.....

$1700 is super rape. When I was having problems with my previous boosted IS and the shop thought it was my ECU, I paid $200 for the ECU and another $200 or so for them to re-program it, turned out it wasn't the ECU though. $1700 is insane. I still have the ECU if you need one. Pm me if you do.
