Reaching Almaretto

How do I reach him to have some remote coding done? I tried PM, but noticed he has not been here in quite a while. Does he have a preferred method of reaching him?

Thanks!

Yes, but with the exception of the 2020, all the 2018/2019 videos is with the resonators removed, which make a huge difference in volume. At least with a cold engine, there is no "click" when moving...

What I am trying to confirm, is the operation on the 2018/2019 should be the same, correct? The only change (on the exhaust) on the 2020 was the removal of one of the two resonators on each bank?
