CS Tuning/LET Flash

So after the debate last week, I'm sitting at CS about to get flashed!

I'll post with the results, can't wait!

Yeah the FI forum is full of douchebags. I'm surprised the thread has gone as well as it has. Normally you'd expect the PB guys to be all over that, looking for any way possible to discredit you and the LET flash.

Totally agree, today is day 3 and it's even stronger than it was when I left! The only thing I will monitor are gonna be the codes, as it seems like a guy in California tripped a 2D code (tuner manipulation) on the Stage 2. Granted I'm on stage 1, but it's realatively new so I'm assuming it will be refined as the weeks/months go by. And Tony is defintely the man!

After all the reviews and everything, it's hard to justify anything else if you're local. Unless you're just not a fan of flashes.

So, how does that work? Does Tony pull your original ECU code, manipulate it, then reupload it to your ECU? Or does he e-mail it to LET who does their magic, then e-mails it back to be uploaded?

If you have a version of the software that they have not tuned yet, then he pulls your software off reads & tweaks it, then feeds it back on. If they have already tuned your version of the software, then they have the files ready for your and on hand so they don't have to read the software off.

If you come in with a new version of software that they have not tuned yet, there is the off chance that they may have to read your software off and send the file out to Cali where the engineers can tear it apart, tweak it, then send it back to Tony. Takes a few days for turn around and you come back and then get your flash. They almost had to send mine out to Cali since I am 32.2 but we got it all worked out.

Are they custom tailered flashes? Or they just off the shelf?

The basic Stage I/II/III are custom for your version of software. That being said, they can customize it on a dyno for your specific car/tunes as well for an additional charge.

No sh*t....my 3 year old has a kicka$$ racecar bed. Wish they made the made them in king size.

So mine is a 7/07 prod running original non-laggy non-nanny software and I want to make sure I can return it to exactly that version. If they "read" it and determine they dont have a tune for it, can I assume they also copy the original while creating a tune for it? If I want to go back to stock someday, I dont want a newer version for the reasons mentioned above.
