    Dead battery like starting issues

    So I just got a new ECU installed, got a used one from Flashmaster's and my tune pulled out of the old one by PCM Performance. Now I seem to have another issue.

    When I got the new ECU in she, she started just fine. And fine again half a dozen time while I washed it and moved some stuff around. Went for a half hour cruise and had to call for a boost after I stopped for beer.

    I acts like the battery is dead. When I go to start it just does fast clicking. If I use my little battery booster I can start it, but its sluggish. Car runs great. Alternator putting out over 14v when running.

    I've also tried another battery. Started just fine the first couple times, now needs the extra boost to go?

    Is it just a coincidence now that my starter is going? Or is there something bigger at play?

    Had my Magna Power battery load tested. Whopping 77 CCA instead of 800 its capable of. I'm guessing its that lol. Piece of junk. Only 4 years old.
