Hi Ian, I have not heard the ecu mentioned before. I would have thought your dealer would have informed you of any problem with the ecu when they fitted the sensor.

At the end of the day guys the sensor is just that.. it voltage is read based off of vaccum or boost on a dilprgraph.. You already have this sensor on your intercooler..Kia techs stared using it as a main map sensor replacement as it was cheaper..and performed better than the factory installed one..I had it in my 2015 Forte5 SX six speed for over a year and over 10 000 miles no issues at all. I know a story of one is no reason to follow me but its wired to clear up all the middle and low end throttle issues...I got a real one from the Kia counter for 50 us and a I got one on EBay for 35 us.. Both look and work go e I have the eBay ordered part in the car now..
