not mk6 ecu. after you send your ecu the first time, you can flash new files yourself using the programmer. if it's all the same, i'd recommend sending it before you trip so it will come back after you get home. or you could bring it to chicago and ship it from there to save $$. also email him ahead of time, he may have dealers in chicago but i'm not sure.

DM will definitely be the best option. He can support tunes w/o fueling, w/ fueling, and any future upgrades that you make to the hardware. my car runs very well with stock injectors on a big turbo kit.

Still running it w/out a tune, it's hard to get one in Mexico.
Does any one know a good tune company that can bench load in the Chicago area? I will be there for 3 days, so I can bring up my ECU.

Everyone has to start somewhere. Looks like he got bombarded in that thread and snapped. A permaban is a bit excessive no?
Saw those posts as well. Pretty sure he was being sarcastic. Think he was a lot more sarcastic than people realized.

I never saw him post a ridiculous response unless is was warranted from a troll. Which people did troll him often. Seemed like a troll magnet really. But he put himself out there pretty often, which not many people do. So he was kinda asking for it in a way.

They help in the higher RPMs in 4th-6th. Help keep the power going strong...and its always nice to have no worry of valve float in the back of your mind. Unless of course you never really drive the car hard and never utilize the power and money you've invested , then yea they are worthless.

Yeah, nothing has been taken off aside from the boost gauge. Sold the Alcon bbk finally. After I get rid of one of the sets of wheels and the other smallish things I'll start getting serious about parting it.

Car is just ridiculously inconsistent. One part of the day it will feel pretty good, and a couple hours later it will feel like crap. Think something is up with the lpfp. Had the controller replaced(car has always had this issue imo), which initially made it feel like I just swapped a bigger turbo on the car, but I still need to get the harness replaced.

Think something is up with my coilovers too. Rear shocks might have an issue. Soooo loud... Milwaukee roads are stupendous!!

And it sounds like I'm driving in a soda can since it is so cold out.

Bit pathetic,but I would probably be up for trying the gtx2871 if that ever came out. Just not too into any new cars. R/S3 look pretty nice, but seems like a lot of money for something that isn't much faster than what is out now.

3" housing would be a nightmare without software.

Didn't they have your car for um... years? How the hell is it still not running right?? Ridiculous.

running stage 2 but the tune company disappeared . Need to find a new tune, but most likely will need to send it to the US.

I just didn't think that any company would tune a 3.5" size maf... So I opted for using the stock maf location/housing instead of going mafless.
