Default Is it true about the Unichip....

I've read many threads and can't get an answer. Is TurboXS or will TurboXS still tune the Unichip? I have one in my '02 and need to get it tuned on the dyno. I've seen many that say TXS ditched the project and are not tuning at all but others are saying the opposite. Is there anyone out there that has confirmation from TurboXS themselves to help me out. Thanks in advance.

Justin

Our unichip tuning hardware is broken. It will not be replaced.

Default What to do now????

Thanks for the quick response. Are there any other tuners that can tune the Unichip or am I just out of luck? If not, is there a unichip trade-in for the User Tuned ECU? Just a thought. Thanks again.

No.
Unichip owners are forced to find another shop to tune their chip.

As I understand it there are still a few shops (such as Axis, Visnhu, etc) that will tune them.
