Warranty ends 2nd week of April so I took my car in for a independent inspection from Valley Motorwerks. Would love some feedback on the thread I posted.

No I uninstalled COBB on Sunday. Ran premium for about 150 miles just to be safe. Passed with flying colors. I was afraid the tune would throw it off.

Left all mods in also. Your boy at Sac Auto referred me to this shop.

Those of you who are interested in the TCU Flash, please don't buy another Cable. (unless you want one for yourself) I got one coming on the way, no sense of all of us spending $100. we can work something out to share.
