… if your battery goes dead, or your laptop falls off the table, or anything else that boils down to carelessness - that's your own fault.
There's always a greater-than-zero chance that even if no mistakes are made and all conditions prior to flashing are as ready as they'll ever be, the pcm could still fail.
I'm pretty sure everyone is in agreement on that.
It's still unlikely.
If the batt goes dead, or the laptop falls, or anything else that boils down to …
… even if there is no one to fault, no cause, and nothing to blame …
(per my experiences so far, despite no indirect fault or direct cause, having literally nothing and no one to blame, my
odds of 'bricking' an OBD1LT1 pcm ≈ 1 / 500
Having a spare pcm on hand in advance turns the argument about fault vs blame vs responsibility from a long angry one, to a brief moot one (pheu! Close one!).
A spare used 16188051 pcm costs ≈
A spare used 12200411 pcm costs ≈
$100, but are actually easier to find sooner than 16188051 or 16181333
A spare TorqHead 12200411 pcm costs >
$100 yet <
$565, and definitely takes longer to replace than either of the above
Guess my only quibble left is, why doesn't TorqHead explicitly cite the price of a spare TH LS pcm?
