    when you open the passenger side door and sit in the seat, it's the plastic thingie that your right foot is right next to....like, if the door's closed, it's what's right in front of the door speaker.

    pop that sucker off, and from there look at the label on the ECU. It's a white sticker with a barcode and something like '37820-p72-003'. The middle 3 is the actual ECU code...if it says P28, it's a P28. I believe the correct stock ecu for an EM1 is a P2T.

    Dude!!!!!

    Ok, If you look at where the glove box is, then look down, you'll see the carpet where the feet lay on.

    now, look right, there is a piece of plastic, that's like a cover for the metal wall, you got to lift the carpet from the far end of the car out toward you, and then pull the

    Totally off topic but we have the same style pedals and e-brake if that is an NRG carbon fiber e-barke you have there
