I'm making an appointment at Mittler Motors in Newmarket this Wednesday to reflash to stock and do the e-test. They are quoting me ~$300.00 to reflash to stock, take for e-test, then reflash to stage 2. Seems very pricey just to pass the e-test.

Curious, do you have a down pipe? I assume so as you're stage 2...

I would prefer them to just flash to the non-test pipe file and do the rest myself. But they keep insisting the $300 route is what I need to do...quite annoying.

I appreciate MLue1's offer but I've been told by multiple sources the simulated stock mode for my stage 2 version will not pass. So at the very minimum I need to reflash to the non-test pipe file before trying again. I've got until Saturday until my temp sticker expires so hopefully I can get this sorted out soon.

The offer still stands, PM sent. I'm not working so I'm available most times.

Put it in the simulated Stock Mode ASAP, drive around for a day or so, if you're near Markham swing by and I'll use my OBD scanner to see if you get a Green light to go do the eTest.

The price is $0, so there is no cost except your time. If it goes green with no codes I would run without hesitation to the nearest eTest Centre.

Getting a temporary stickers is not expensive as far as I know and better than #300

Yeah, unfortunately it's a time issue for me, I work 12+ hour days...again I appreciate the offer but APR and multiple tuning shops have told me that simulated stock mode will not pass the readiness test. Essentially they told me it's a waste of time to try that.

Yes, temp stickers are not expensive at $15 a piece but you're only allowed two in a 365 day year and this is my second.

I will try and get Mittler Motors to reflash to the stage 2 non-test pipe file and then maybe I could try your reader before heading in for an e-test. I drive 100+ km's per day so there should be no issue with the driving part after reflashing.

You should probably ask mario at k&h for a price before handing over 300.
