Prior to the update, when I was stopped at a light for example, I would have to increase the revs to about 2k for the car to accelerate properly. If not, and this happened on a number of occasions, all the lights on the dash would come on as if the car was going to stall.

The car feels stronger and pulls harder off the line. If we could tune our cars, low to mid torque could be improved but of course, there isn't a whole lot of support for our non turbo cars.
So can I just go in and ask for the ECU flash without getting an oil change or any other work done?
