Last post I read from Nathan said they would not be shipping until Monday the 21st. I doubt there are very many people, if any, that got them already.

Phil said they had been using the tuna over their orginal wideband setup on the dyno for the past month or two. TXS will have to verify this but I dont think they have had a single issue with it since they started using it on their dyno.

When we place orders for PC boards we do them in large quantities. I sold though all we had built up before we left for the holidays, but I expect that when we get back we'll have another shipment late that week or early the following. I figure by the week of the 12th we should have these back in stock unless there are a ton of online orders between now and then.

If you want one we are taking orders. If you want to get in line, you can order though our online ordering system. The unit will ship when we get them back in stock.

Otherwise, just wait till after the holidays and give us a call when we get back in the office on the 5th.

Thanks for the info nathan as my tuner is going to be here today in sunny Hawaii. I think I am one of the first to get one out here. At last, a way to tune my car without a dyno, since we don"t have one out here.

Aloha
