Hi all, ST185 (ST205 conversion) had it for 3 months

Have been told the ECU has a big black mark and is reading the map sensor even when its not plugged in. Getting check engine light mechanic says it seems to come on once the engine is warm. Pulled code 54 and 12 -

Concerned they stuffed up the wiring not sure where to start some have suggested going afternarket ecu and loom. Otherwise thinking of getting an auto elec to go over - Turbo timer, Battery moved to boot, thermo fan on manual switch, code 54 fix. Got quoted $3500 for an ecu and loom install figured electrican would be cheaper?

Cheers

Also, thanks heaps for all the replies. I'm fast learning that this may be the friendliest forum on the internet.
