One thing that is bothering me is that the battery is dead and they had to jump start it for me to test drive. Later, I brought the better half over to look at it...

    i was searching and a lot of people say they are flashing their ecu's, do we have flashable chips in our ecu's or are the flashers putting flashable chips in then flashing them? what would stop you from just flashing your ecu with a tuners software if you had it rather then getting a socketed...

    I just upgraded my GIAC Chip to their newest technology. They had to replace the GIAC chip with my stock chip and flash it with the new program.
