I am not close by any means, but I am wondering if they had to send the ECU back or what.

SB beat me to it. Looks like we effed up! :)

I keep saying time and again that these cares are too damn complicated for their own good.

Can you believe the freakin' computer on the car was the issue??? :mad:

The dyno should be interesting instead of disappointing this time! :D

More update on my car.

1. Shaking has been reduced although ESS still suspect there is a minor vacumm leak somewhere.

2. the auto transmission really hate the power. Gear enagement between 1/2 and 2/3 are now harsh under open throttle.

3. The power is much easier to notice when drive in sports mode or manual mode. The regular D just don't do justice. I now wish that I have a manual. But then again, it would totally defeat puporse of getting this car S/C in the 1st place.

Does anyone (like Dinan) make software for the 530 automatic tranny? Can you use it with ESS?

I am almost certain ESS sells their kit with the S/w. If you want Dinan S/w then you should buy the DInan kit. No dealer I know would ever allow Dinan S/w to be installed with out the Dinan parts, futhermore, your VIN is recorded by Dinan when you make the s/w upgrade.
It is impossible to get Dinan s/w from anyone but a authorized dealer.
