should you buy a cable and flash it yourself? maybe
easy? no
info? all around you. openecu.org and osecuroms.org are good starts
map? osecuroms or make your own.
software? we all use ecuflash pretty much. map editing software differs on the user.

you have a lot of learning to do. one wrong move and you can destroy your engine if you're not careful or don't know what you're doing.

The guy who wants to charge you $375 is ripping you off, unless that includes like 8 hours of tuning time.

I'm kind a scared to do it on my own....
I just don't want a spend 375$ for a reflash.

Anyone here near Gatineau/Hull/Ottawa that could help me?

Is there some Preload Map that come with the software?
