    I ordered the APR tune from ECS last week and know their offices have been closed for the holidays, so I can fully understand a delay. Anyway, I called ECS today to find out when I would receive the UPS overnight shipping document in order to ship my ECU. The guy I spoke to today basicly...

    Ok OK OK I had my battery unplugged overnight and when it was put back on, naturally the computer had reset itself. However now when i do a cold start, it sounds like it wants to stall but then after about 30 seconds it returns to normal idle. Is this something with the fuel injection now...
