Well alright here's the update. Over the past week he has replaced chips and resistors thinking he could save it but today he called me and it's not even worth trying to save anymore and that he found one in Florida which he ordered. Car will hopefully be up and going by Friday if not it will be Monday or Tuesday

He found this one for 700 which I thought was pretty steep but I don't really know how much they usually run other than Knowing the one from the dealership is like a thousand. I'm just ready to have it fixed and back lol

A new ecu from the dealer is like 1800 if I'm not mistaken.
