    If page 32 isn't clear, use the laptop to update the ECU firmware.
    http://documents.holley.com/techlibr...rmwarerev1.pdf (How To Update ECU Firmware)

    I'm updating from V2 0.0.587 to V5.
    In some cases, users had to update to V4 first, and then to V5. Try this.
    Also, ensure you're downloading the correct EFI software/ECU firmware.

    Finally made some progress, but it was painful. I figured out the file structure and put the V5 ECU firmware in the right location. It still didn't work, either from the SD card or the laptop. Apparently, you can't go from ECU firmware version 0.0.587 directly to the latest V5 firmware. So I downloaded V2 from the support site to my laptop and upgraded the ECU to the latest V2 firmware. Then I downloaded V5 and updated again to V5 firmware in the ECU. That worked and I had V5 on the ECU. Now the problem was that the 3.5" TSLCD display had V4 from the factory and that was not compatible with V5 ECU firmware. I downloaded V5 Display firmware from Holley's support site to the laptop, put it on the SD card, and tried to update the display firmware. It came up with a CRC error and said "corrupted file". Repeated the whole thing again with same results. I finally found that on Holley's support page the V5 display firmware download file has a date of 1970 on it. Doubtful. Maybe this is where the corrupted file problem starts? To make this work I had to download the full V4 EFI software to my laptop and update the ECU firmware to V4. Now, finally, both the display and the ECU are at the same firmware level and everything works. Hopefully Holley can fix the corrupted V5 display firmware download and we can update to V5 soon. Might be worth a tech note that you can't go directly from 0.0.587 to V5 directly to save others similar frustration.

    Thanks for the tip Danny. I didn't see that until just now, but I bet going from 0.0.587 directly to V4 instead of V5 might have worked also.

    What, wait, my understanding was once you use the laptop to tune on a Terminator ECU, that's been flashed to HP, you can't use the 3.5" TSLCD handheld anymore? I left my handheld plugged into the CAN on the Terminator harness after upgrading to V4, then V5, multiple revisions, and never updated the handheld. Will that cause a conflict? During V4 tuning, once or twice I did mod some settings from the handheld. Could that cause Global File corruption?

    Yes, you can still use the 3.5" TSLCD unit. The EFI (laptop/PC) software, ECU firmware & touchscreen unit must all be version compatible (LINK).

    Is there a Terminator Stealth V5 SD Card Contents download?

    I don't see it (LINK). Contact Holley Tech Service (LINK).

    Hi guys. I just bought a Terminator to replace my Sniper and it has V4 installed. I'll using basic things such as timing control, fuel pressure sensor and Fan #1 control. My question, is it worth updating to V5? I was told by a Holley tech that I'll lose the Wizard, which I find odd why it would be removed in V5. BTW, I tend to leave things alone if all is working good. Thanks, Joey.S

    V5 is for advanced Holley EFI users. If the touchscreen's GCF Wizard doesn't work, use the laptop EFI software to load the Global File. The V5 EFI software has base calibrations available. Open the EFI software & click "Open Global File", then "Base Cals". When using the EFI software, everything is done with the laptop. The GCF Wizard or those related files are no longer needed on the 3.5" LCD Touchscreen (TSLCD).
