With that said, I haven't dealt with a power FC in years but if I was trying to get something up and running now, I would ditch it and just go to my favorite tuner. I dont think a power FC can do something that an opensource (or 'accesstuner' or whatever cobb calls theirs) can't do.
My bad on the "became Surgeline" I don't know the in's and out's of what happened there. I just know one time i went there it was PDX tuning and then next time it was Surgeline haha.
In any case, I'm not sure I can just ditch the PowerFC being there aren't to many options out there for the older G motors that I know of that wouldn't require a decent amount extra cost involved. I don't really have the funds or want, to dump funds into something that does the same thing the PowerFC does when I already have the PowerFC. I'd rather just pay for a new tune. Currently that is.
But if there is some sort of replacement that does exist that you know of I would be more than happy to look into it for the future of the car. Just trying to put my money elsewhere at the moment.
