I doubt that the ECM can be repaired. It can be recalibrated, but that does not sound like its the issue. I would call Dustin at Whipple and discuss it with him.

I've had several 600/700 pcms that got fried by faulty IAC motors. It's a hardware fault and cannot be repaired with a reflash that I am aware of.

Have 700 sci's lost the IAC driver in one. Call Dustin Whipple, they can reprogram ECU. Runs great now.
