Default Swapping esl board from ecu

Just after abit of advice on swapping over an esl board on a JDM ecu to my uk ecu. I know I could swap is it crank sensor connection over. But prefer it on original Ecu.

the install docs are on the website mr:
ESL DOCS

So reverse the process to remove the board and set the JDM ecu back to standard, then follow the instructions to install the board on your UK ecu. I wouldn't bother myself if its in the JDM ecu now and working just swap the pins over and fire it up rather than risk damaging either ECU or the ESL board itself.

I think that's the old ESL board the v1.1 - pretty sure the current ones are v2.0 now so may not be worth re-using it as the software is tricky to get working and it's not as flexible as the new 2.0 board.

Cheers for info Rich thought there was only one board for the v3,v4. Not sure about motorsport pack, guessing its just software and no visual evidence.

Correct jay,you'll need to plug in to see if you've got the motorsport
if you've got the data cable you will be able to reset it back to the OE map to save you sending it off,all you'll need is a copy of the 8s rom.

Guessing if I did that it wouldn't get rid of motor sport pack not that I think it's on there? Guy I bought it off said it came of his Terzo so guessing that will be straight swap no need for swapping ecu connections around.

I've got the 1.2 v3/4 board in mine and been told it's pretty much had it in that the software to map isn't there so they would need to resurrect it.
the v2 is current

No you wouldn't lose motorsport.
