How To Find ECU For COBB?

Bought a COBB yesterday and I was wondering how do I find out which ECU I have so I can find the appropriate maps?

Could swear you just plug it in and read from the ECU first, I remember it being very easy

Thanks buddy.... sorry for the stupid question I have never done this before and I just don't want to screw up the ECU or something and load a wrong map and have my car not work.

In the video step #6 is 'Power Cycle the car and the AP Install Process is Complete'...... does that just mean I press the start once without my foot on the clutch and then once again right after with my foot on the clutch to turn the car on?

Thanks for the help.

you remove the key, unplug the COBB AP and start the car.... Then you`re done.

B4 you install the AP, update it on your PC, then after plug it to your car, hit install and then the AP will ask what map you want. Install and your done! If you have any questions feel free to pm me
