Today I flashed my ///M with a euro tune!

First attempt....car went into limp mode
Second attempt....car still in limp mode
Third attempt....car wouldnt start
Fourth attempt....WIN!

third try is not always the charm...lol

Much better throttle response, quicker over all!

this was freaking nerve racking!

but in the end.....

Euro tune FTMFW!!

Don't. Plasti-dip is a PITA to take off after a while, you will hate yourself for doing it.

Changed oil, the socket for the wrench was too big to take the oil filter cover off, so I left it with an old filter, but changed oil.
