Great info, but I'm looking for suggestions on what's out there, not an explanation of why there's no shark for the 330 auto. Still, it's good to know that if I ignored the warning and tryied to shark my 330 I would have a 1 in 4 chance of ruining my DME.

Really you're soa. You can ship your DME, or go to a shop that can have the software sent to them, and then burned to your DME.

Thus, that's why you don't see one.

Merry Christmas.
So all those questions I asked in the AA tune thread don't matter, as I have an auto and cant use the shark injector it looks like? Guess I will be doing the AA tune after all...
