...you know that the ecu in every SA spec FCA product has been tuned for our fuel and altitudes right...
My 156 had slightly strange behavior when I bought it and the ecu was found to be in Brazilian spec (same as US: 87-92 octane fuel) and 10% to 80% alcohol compatible. Needless to say after the SA software was loaded it was running fine.
What is strange about this, is that my dad's Fiat Sienna HL also had the same issue which was picked up much later because it didn't act up like the 156 did.
My point is, I am sure they will sort the ecu trouble out once the car is homologated for SA use. I want a 100bhp version :biglaugh:
They are dumb. They do not understand the "combustion" part of the Internal Combustion Engine. Shame.
Usually the software is written for SA by Italy. One has to understand that when you have an engine running in Europe with up to 98 octane freely available, and the same engine s happy in Brazil with an alcohol blended 87 octane then it is possible for that engine to run on anything in between, including our fuels.
This is the bit I was talking bout remapping engines being done by laptop technicians. What do they really know? aranoid:
