Drool...I won't have the mods to make this worth it for a year or so...but I suspect I should get on the waiting list NOW!

I've learned a little bit about this board over the past few months and TurboXS has hit a major league home run.

The UTEC gets my nomination for People's Choice for Best New Product award.

Congratulations and may the fine TXS crew continue to garner the real awards (and rewards) that are your due.

It doesn't mention price and availability. I would suppose that it will be at least a few months before I can get my hands on one. Do they offer a TurboXS unichip customer first trade in type deal. I think that is only fair! Especially since this was designed to fix the problems with the unichip.

It says the price and availability at the top of the page.

This was not created to fix problems with the unichip. It is in a different league then the unichip.

I don`t believe TXS owes anyone anything.

Sell the unichip. Probably the best bet.

I heard something about trade in though. And by availability I mean for myself, not when they will start selling them.

Yes it's in a league of it's own, but I think they started with the idea of fixing the unichip timing problems. I don't expect it free or anything, but a little trade in would be nice since I already paid so much for the unichip. I'd probably buy it anyways though.

I understand what you are saying about a trade in.
I still think if you act quick you can still get a decent price for your unichip.

But I even think if I was stuck with a unichip and bought the UTEC, it still would be a great deal.

I`m sure TXS is/will be flooded with phone calls and email so we need to be patient for them to respond to these questions.

I have no information about trade in, but my broker says that if you hold unichip stock, now might be the time to sell.

Unichip futures aren't looking so hot.

(Of course, these statements must be considered "forward-looking" statements and past performance is no gaurantees of future results.)

I agree. I have had nothing but great service from Turbo XS. I won't have the money to buy this for a few weeks anyways.

I'm in awe, lust or whatever! that's totally badass. Now, what'll happen to my Unichip's value? Wish I could front the bills for this right now.

I called them this morning just as they opened to get my name on the "list". Sounds like I was first to call today......I've already been told I might not get one in the first batch of ~30 or so.

I have faith in them though

There is no “trade in” deal. However, we are offering a limited time $250 discount on the UTEC to original TurboXS Unichip customers who wish to purchase a UTEC. You keep your Unichip and harness. You must be the original purchaser, present proof of purchase of the Unichip from us or one of our dealers and place your order with TurboXS by September 27, 2002 to take advantage of this offer

Good lord. This UTEC is everything I could possibly want and more. 40HP on a stock WRX is sweet with just an ECU, and safely I might add. What I really like is you have the ability to continue to mod without having to keep sending the damn thing back for retuning. This has to be the sweetest product for the WRX yet (well, for at least 95% of WRX owners anyway).

This is about all we can do, you have until the 27th to place the order, your credit card will not be charged until your utec is shipped, but we can't hold this deal open forever.
