I have a st165 and a person is selling a 2nd gen blitz ecu. Will it work or do i have to rewire/pin? Is it worth it to upgrade? Thanks

Not directly compatible. It's a good upgrade if you know how its already tuned or you get it retuned.

Also, if it's tuned by blitz, it's 99.99% JDM, which factory is already set with advanced timing (for higher octane Japanese Fuel), so the blitz ECU will be even MORE advanced.

So you will have to run pretty serious octane booster, or custom fuel blends to get the true benefit of the ECU.

In my opinion... the juice isn't worth the squeeze.
