Had one quick limp mode....no CEL...probably not even related to the Dinan. Just stopped the engine and restarted.

I love the tune.

April fools right?
Dinan doesn't overwrite the emissions or safety maps. Since the Dinan has more control over the engine, it can be more refined and tuned better. Thus, less limp modes. This was a huge argument I came across on these boards and ended with Jim C registering and correcting Shiv that a piggybacks are indeed limited to what they can do simultaneously. There is alot of engine management function that a piggyback just cannot access/address, that a properly tuned ECU can enherenty react too.

That's right, I forgot about your situation. I assume the problem did not repeat itself? Have you taken the car in for the 15k service yet? Any fuel pump symptoms? I do appreciate your participation. Thanks.

someone has to give the other point of view? besides, it makes your poll look more legit

Of course other "factual" point of views are welcome. I want it to be "legit" rather than "look legit".

That's what it there for. Push the "hater" button and stick it to the 'Diman'. Push it, it'll make you feel good
