Shark injector issues

Anyone have trouble installing a shark injector?

Here's the story...I bought mine used a week ago and went to install it today and it says it can't connect to the DME. Im honestly not sure what that means and why it can't connect, so I'm asking if anyone else has had this issue and how have you overcome it?

Thanks, Chris

OK, great.

Now all you need to do is this:

Send it off to "Drew" at Turner Motorsports so they can UNLOCK it for a fee of $150* not including any shipping costs. Or use it as a paper weight.



Rob43



* The $150 price assumes that the Shark software was Uninstalled from the original BMW that it was purchased for. If the software is still in the original BMW, then you have a worthless hollow black Shark module that's worthless. You can't "Fix" software that is potentially Not There, only Turner Motorsport can determine this at this point.

Op you also realize that there are different ECU versions on the 330's correct? MS43 and MS45.1. Did the other person have a ZHP(2003-2006) or a 2004-2006 standard 330i e46? If for example person you bought it did have a ZHP and used it, they most likely did not remove the software from their car. Like Rob says you need to send it into Turner and have it unlocked. Right now its just a paper weight.
