True.

A lot of these flashes, and even JB3 1.3 have shown incredible torque gains down low....

How much do they normally charge for an individualized dyno tune?

335iPaul, What if you need to bring your car in for warranty work? Can they flash it back to stock?
I am really interested in stage II. They are local too, which is a plus for me.

They will flash it back to stock, no charge, as I understand it. They do insist it's undetectable at the dealer, but techs have butt dynos too....

+1

They will flash back to stock no charge and then back to your flash after your dealer trip.

They have not had time to update their site lately. Cost, as Nebster stated earlier is $500.

they have one they can send you with a deposit. They haven't developed a portable one that you can buy yet. I believe that one will be ~600

I'm not sure what the deposit is though

Hell I had blacklines and black grills the week I bought my car. I am well into the mod bug. Looking at exhaust and fmic along with wheels and suspension now.

I think they just take a valid cc number to hold but don't actually charge it unless you don't return the device. The device is like $2000 so you will want to be sure to return it.

If someone drives your car and drives 335's all the time, their butt dyno will tell them something is different. For someone who doesn't get a 335 out all the time or who doesn't drive one daily, they aren't as likely to be able to tell the difference.

My LET experience

****IMPORTANT******--This passage below are my own thoughts and expressions, NOT from someone who works for, or sleeps with anyone from Eurocharged/LET********

After hearing how a couple of guys in the Chicagoland area are loving their experience with the LET flash, I gave Tony a call to see what it was all about. He offered to get me in same day, and even said that if after the flash I didn't think it was worth it compared to what I was already running, then he'd get rid of it and charge me nothing (not sure if he'll do that as their shop's workload continues to increase, but I digress)!

After the flash was complete (STAGE 1), I turned off the traction control and took off for a few WOT runs. It took a few pulls for the flash to kick in, but my WOT run quickly turned into a SEG (sh*t eating grin) run!

Since they just moved into a new shop, they didn't have a dyno, so don't ask me for before and after numbers. I don't have them. Feel free to check their website for the #s But as the great philosopher Kenny Powers would say, "I'm about to fuck you up with some truth you big beautiful bitch".......

At the end of the day, my butt dyno is defintely seeing some killer gains, and this is only Stage 1. When I get some pipes on, Stage 2 will be next. As for Stage 3....

Tony had the shop 1er there with the Stage 3 flash (and slicks still on), so of course I had to go for a ride in that bad mofo. I've been in some fast cars before, but I'm not sure I've ever hit 100mph as quickly as this...If I had to mods to be able to do it right then, there is NO doubt I'd be on my 3rd tank of gas since yesterday

In the end, I definitely recommend trying it out!

The End.

Are you telling me they laid down a 11.2 on stock turbos with no spray and had clutch issues?

In their 1 series with the Stage 3 (and other mods), that is what they were telling me. Could be shop BS, but he had no reason to lie to me since I was getting the Stage 1. The clutch was slipping when I rode in it, apparantley it started at the track the day they ran the 11.2. Feel free to give Tony a call and ask him about it, very cool guy. I know they have stock turbos, NO clue if they were spraying, as I wasn't there.

I am telling you that saying stuff like that will get you in trouble with the enthusiasts. Simply put that is not possible on the stock turbos with a clutch that is slipping unless they are spraying a big shot. I would rather hear honesty.
