  1. Hello,

    I’m looking for Subaru Impreza Boxerdiesel 2.0D 110KW EURO5 22611AS901 DENSO ECU whole,
    “virgin content” asap. I mean a content to virginise an ECU, like it would be new from factory, because at falshing it over OBD something, somehow went wrong but not in the processor (I checked it ), but maybe in other area how ever it happened. It probably misses a few bytes what another ecu in the car wants to
    communicate with (like the ignition key module), because I can start the car with an extra wire connected to the starter engine relais.

    So it would be a VERY big help for me to get a whole virgin ECU content for this car.

    Thank You!
