    My 2g eclipse is 6bolt swapped. It came with a 2g DSM ECMlink v3 that it ran pretty poorly on. I wanted to switch it over to the Blackbox so I could throw the ECMlink in my Talon. Thing is, on the Blackbox, the car just keeps turning over. On ECMlink it starts right up! The firing order between my two cars are exactly the same. What’s the deal here?

    You need to flip the spark plug wire order 4123 <-> 3214.

    You can do it if you can count until 4 haha ROFL
    It's simple, if you see your spark plug wires on the coil pack is 4123 (cylinder numbers) from the left side, just make it 4123 from the right side and vice versa.
