Question BF ECU Flash to BA

Just posing a little question and perhaps setting a little challenge to a few.

Given that the BF-I6 4 speed auto has improved fuel economy without any
significant hardware changes over the BA.

Will flashing standard BF-I6 code into a BA-I6 4 speed improve fuel consumption?


I may be old, but at least I'm stupid!

Definately won't work. Hardware needs to be upgraded as well as software.

Re: BF ECU Flash to BA

get an edit mate.. that'll improve your power, torque and fuel economy.

for me it took my economy from about 16.2L/100km to about 15.8.
(3.73 diff).... about 25kms more from every tank.

dawal5, you must have a heavy foot because that is pretty bad. I get between 10.8 and 11.5l/100km.

Re: BF ECU Flash to BA

bear in mind mate that was with the 3.73 diff... i was getting more like 14 before that.
(a fairmont would have the 3.23)

and i live in the dandenongs... lots of hills.

and yes.. i a bit of a lead foot. *sigh*

still.. hills+lead foot = fun

:)

btw your figure is that for city or hwy driving.. it's damned good.

Re: BF ECU Flash to BA

should do... i'd say that the computer is pretty much the same, just with a different program on it.
