after reading through a lot of stuff i think open source is what i should go with, although i would like to have something more than just a "flash" idk it just doesn't seem solid to me, like something is missing. not to mention i cant just unplug the unit and be back stock like i could with a piggy back unit
Dude,how do you have over 1,000 posts and don't know this stuff ? Opensource is a flash just like Cobb and Ecutek.Why don't you tell what you think is missing?If you don't know then chances are nothing is missing.If you would take the time to read the Opensource stickies and browse the Opensource sites you would find they have not just moddified maps but all of the factory ECU revisions.Some of you guys live in a box.You gotta get out and look around.Download Enginuity or EcuFlash to your computer and just open it up and play with it.You don't even have to do anything to your car.You can see every parameter the programs can change.

Homebrewed tuned with Opensource!

I'm just trying to push you to go out and find some of this info on your own instead of just taking my word for it.You worried about what a reflash won't do but you can't even tell me what exactly they will do.You see?This isn't secret info.It's easilly found with alittle searching.People just have gotton so lazy lately.They spend hours waiting for answers to questions when in minutes they could have found the answers and more by taking some initiative.You learn so much faster by actually researching some yourself because you stumble apon so much misc info along the way.Nothing wrong with asking questions but at least try to spend some energy looking for the answers Half the time i answer questions on here it's not like I don't have to search myself sometimes for the answers.

Strongly agree. It's better knowledge gained with a more rewarding feeling when you find it yourself. I get lazy once in a while but for the most part I read something about this damn car almost everyday.
