R34 rb25de+t Secret squirrel trick help?

Recommended Posts

I’ve just picked up a impul ecu for my rb25de turbo conversation..

I’ve got the check engine light on and I’m pretty sure it’s because of the boost pressure sensor.. and most likely other sensors, 

can someone please help me with either finding how to do the squirrel trick, to trick the ecu that everything is running fine..

apparently you just use pin 48, it's the 5 volt reference supply for all 3 sensors 

but I have no idea what I’m doing, can someone put me in the right direction please or send me to a guide or some diagrams etc


thanks for your help!!

Great. and have you remembered that we have all told you that it is very unlikely that a Neo turbo auto ECU will drive your auto? Because the auto is wired up to your old TCU and the new TCU is in the ECU and there shouldn't be any magic that would make one think it is the other?

Aaaaaand - given that you heard about the secret squirrel trick on these forums referring to other posts on these forums.....why don't you keep searching until you find it yourself?

Yes you have no idea what you are doing. It is clear that you have read at least two threads telling you what the"secret squirrel" trick is but you say you don't know  what to do.

Your best bet is to return the car back to stock if you remember how

Or get professional help...

You'll need to run an aftermarket ECU with less aggressive timing to make up for the higher comp NA motor. Don't use a turbo ecu, don't use a mines ecu, don't use an impul ecu. Do it right the first time and don't end up paying for a new motor.


Edit: In addition to this, the aftermarket ecu won't care if you don't have those sensors.

Also an impul ECU or mines ecu will probably run a more aggressive tune than a factory DET ecu ?
