That means what version the car is. Older/newer. 1st gen. means it was the first model of the car. :thumbs:

Genertion refers to the ECU and the ECU only. Its a new ecu with diff shift point etc

Haha, what the hell?

New Generation of a car refers to a new styling of the same model. When they change the body style they have created a new car, thus a new generation. New ECU's, upgraded engines, and all that good stuff comes with the change of a new body....

(i.e)Eclipse 2G, has a 4 cylinder turbo as the top model/ Eclipse 3G has a V6 and no turbo as the top model. The body styles have changed, thus a new generation. With a new generation usually comes restyling/upgrading of the engine.
