I just went from APR to UNI and the ECU had to be pulled and bench flashed. I would imagine it would be the same in your case.

Bro keep your GIAC is way better customer service than Revo IMO...and a much better and safer tune.

GL with revo

I would not switch away from GIAC. I would not switch to or ever go with REVO. I have APR.

Revo seems to be the worst/least responsive of any tuner in the VAG scene... good luck.
