You got the name of the forum almost right.

The short of it is, it flashes a new ECU map to your car which is theoretically "Tuned" for the modifications you have done to it.

It is performed with a wand and some magic spells which I am not at liberty to talk about here. There is a secret forum for those of us "In the Know" who use these spells on our cars. It's kind of like a magician doesn't reveal his secrets sort of thing.

Basically, it involves alot of reading, like in potions class, except there is no pre-pubescent Hermoine to get all hot and bothered by. Just a bunch of sweaty guys hanging around, sauna like talking about new spells and such. It's really a big sword fest alot of times, if you catch my drift.

There are a few places which people openly talk about these feats of magic, and they do it right on the Internet and all.

If I wanted to start, I would start at one of these places. But it is forbidden to discuss methods with the inferior or half blood "Tuggles". The are called Tuggles because when they see a cable coming from below their steering wheel they immediately say "HEY!!! WHAT'S THAT FOR???" and pull or "Tug" on it, and they always seem to break them. I hate them. I wish they were dead.

so could you just take your car somewhere where they could reflash your car for you and upload the map you need? Which in turn would increase your power?

Don't mention it.

In all fairness, at least you found the Stock ECU Flash Forum, as opposed to the hundreds who ask this same question in other random forums.
