JWT ECU question

2749 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  nissansofspokane
A friend has a 98 Altima SE and we want to do an FMAX Stage 1 kit on it. FMAX says their kit will only work with the 97 and older Altimas, because of the JWT ECU. In other words it's the same problem SE-R owners have - JWT hasn't cracked the 98+ ECUs, and you can't just bolt a 97 ECU into a 98, it won't work.

So my question is, does anybody have any information on getting an older Altima ECU to work in a 98? On the SE-R side it requires a little rewiring, nothing too major - if anybody has any information on specifically what needs to be done to get an older JWT ECU to work in a 98 Altima, I'd really appreciate it. We don't want to go standalone with the engine management if we can avoid it at all.

Hey now... NOBODY has an ECU replacement for 97+ ODB-II cars. They are encrypted by the automakers and it isn't like hacking a PC. This is all binary code, and requires a LOT of work.

Look at their site, they have parts for your car, just not an ECU. JWT has done more for Nissan owners than any other aftermarket company out there.
