    Lol. I wonder if they send out a generic tune for all ATS's or if they do slight alterations to each tune. Not rushing or anything just want to know the process and why it's not sent right away. Hopefully they go thru each tune independently...

    ----------

    BTW Ive been going over the tune install repeatedly so I don't ruin my ECM. Ive read about people hooking the car battery to a charger so that the voltage doesn't drop during the install which can mess up the writing process. Anyone have any experience with this and know how necessary it is? Also make sure you install your tune with the car in "Service Only Mode" which is selected by pressing and holding the PUSH START button for five seconds without pressing the brake pedal (I believe). If anyone can chime in and confirm or has any previous experience tuning with EZ flash please chime in.

    I also had a question or rather clarification. i'm assuming that any version of .NET 3.5 and above will work w/o conflict. I'm running v4.5 and just want to make sure future versions have been tested as well.

    I am in the same city at BNR so probably why I got it really quick. Still waiting on my tune though.

    Seems like overkill to hook up a charger but I was surprised how long it took to finish both flash passes. Using an old netbook, it was close to an hour. Maybe a decent laptop would be faster. Even without the tune, you can install EZ flash, make sure you can connect and read the vehicle details.

    I went to www.wot-tuning.com, a sub web site of Trifeca Performance and downloaded the latest version of the software EZ Flash that u need to
    load the tune when it arrives. It is version 1.6.17.0 last updated today at 1;59 PM. iT SAYS VER 3.5 OF net.
    Site also has the drivers that u need with red cable and EZ Flash. Here is link
    http://www.wot-tuning.com/forums/files/file/1-ez-flash/

    frank

    PS got my cable today.
    PPS: I suspect this info will probably come with the tune but provide it for those who are interested and want to prepare for when tune arrives.

    Thanks for the info. I had all these things ready since last night but didn't know about the update. Now I just wanna confirm how to put the car in service mode, and make sure that's the appropriate mode to tune it.

    It looks to me as if you hold the start button for 5 secs, the car powers on and the check engine light stays on without releasing the button. If you release before 5 secs, no check engine light. You can double check it since the car will power off after 5 minutes in regular mode.

    Thanks for the link. It also says, "You may receive a "Setup Error" when performing this first step if the framework is already installed. If you receive a "Setup Error" you may proceed to the next step. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, you may skip this step." I'm on Win7, and am assuming that Win7 comes pre-installed with .Net 4+ but you know what they say about "assuming". When I click the link it doesn't do anything, not an error, per se'.

    We've paid trifecta for the tunes and sent all the cables out so were just waiting for trifecta to send us the tunes at this point. The day we get them is the day you get them. Trifecta is closed until Tuesday so id say Tuesday is the earliest you can expect the tunes

    The tune install takes 30-40 minutes, so make sure you are in "Service Only Mode". As stated earlier push and hold the start button (no foot on brake) for 5 seconds. If you watch your DIC, you will see the message come up. Then follow instructions. You don't need to put a charger on the battery.
    The tunes are for auto and manual. After the install you can do a driving "data log" and email it to BNR. Adjustments specific to your car will be made, if necessary.

    Thanks a lot mikesul. This guy is a great member. He knows his stuff and has been nothing but helpful to me.
    Wow 30 to 40 minutes. I wonder if its the EZ Flash or the ECM writing limit speed that makes it take so long.

    I got my EZ flash cable. Do we need to download anything for the tune prior to actually getting it?
