I'm sponsored by Dynoflash and have been using his flashes for almost 2 years now. I loved my first one and have loved every flash since then. I ran the times in my sigh with his flash with stg1 mods.

Getting a wideband is good, but you won't need the knock light.

Warr, is there a functional difference between the mail-in (Dyno)flash and the e-flash?

Here's one thing I don't understand. If you get a mail in or eflash aren't they on the conservitive side and still require some fine tuning for your car and octane your running? If so, why not just do the whole thing yourself?

I've seen some truly disturbing work by quite a few of the better known tuners - enough not to fully trust any of them with my car. To answer your question, I trust myself even less when it comes to this sort of thing.

When I said they went to Al, I literally mean they WENT to Al . We're only about 1.5 hours away

Yes, base flashes are made more conservative, but they by no means need to be tweaked. You can almost always improve a base flash with custom tuning, but the vast majority of people will not and should not be playing with ECU parameters.

Needing a new ECU because of a flash would be in the 1 in a 1000 range...

i would tend to want to trust dynoflash before myself who has never tried tuning. i had a hard enough time figuring out an avcr on my 2g eclipse let alone an afc. but i guess you cant ever learn if you don't try. my area needs a good tuner bad. northwest sux for import tuners.

I got a ttm flash through dynoflash about 7 months ago, and it works fine for me. I had to go on a 3 week tdy so it was perfect timing for me to mail in my ecu. Only gripe I had and it may just have been due to not driving my car for 3 weeks, but when I got back I didn't notice a difference. I went into the flash with a tbe and mbc set to 21psi. The positive though, was I had boost spiking to 24psi during highway cruising and after the reflash it went away.

I don't know what part of Washington you're in, but there's a shop called Axiom in Tacoma, WA that has done some good work with Evos. I plan on getting tuned through them when I get back to the states in a couple weeks.

i've heard of axiom. i'm all the way on whidbey island but its really not that far to go. they have the ability to flash? i still think that i would trust dyno flash more since they deal mostly with evos. plus it should only take two days mail in flash or you can eflash. we should organize a northwest evo meet/run.

You're right, I would've initially trusted dynoflash more to begin with. Over on Evom there was a thread a few months ago in the PNW forum about a guy that had been dynoflashed and down the road he went to Axiom and got flashed there. Said his dynoflash was really conservative, just like Warrtalon says above about base flashes. He got some pretty good results from them.
I've had 95% of my performance parts bought and installed there. They've been pretty cool to me.

But yeah I'd be up for a northwest evo meet/run goin. I'll be back to the states in 14 days. Really itching to drive my car as much as possible.
