they can be a little hard to come by, before you go that route I would try to either contact the PO and find out who tuned it, or find the nearest ECUTek dealer and they should be able to unlock it for you
OK so I got a new ecu from a vendor on Ebay. The car runs fine on the replacement ECU. it seems to be a stock map.
The car STILL wont connect to ecuflash. I can log with Romraider no problem though
I have tried:
3 computers (xp, vista and 7)
turning the car to "on" first... turning the car to on right before... doesnt make a difference.
The Tactrix cable does show up as connected in the bottom right corner of ECUflash
Once again here is the log:

The thing that FINALLY worked was to make sure I hit "OK" in ecu flash . . . waited a second or 2. . . and THEN turned the key to on. This was the only way I could keep the ECU from going strait into test mode without talking to ECUflash
