New but not New...

Good morning everyone,

It's good to be back, as I was on here previously as Louiscipher but was not able to access the account (no longer use that email)

At that time I had an 03 Le Mans Blue. I now have recently purchased an 02 Imola Red with Black and Red interior.

It has a Dinan package as well which includes Dinan headers, Dinan MAF adapters and Dinan catback exhaust. I will soon send pics as well.

How can I tell what type of package is this and also if it came with a tune?

I know when I crank it up in the morning, all of the lights are not shown on the RPM gauge it always shows the last lights on the RPM gauge as ready....

For now it's good to be back as I love and enjoy these cars.

It used to be that you could contact Dinan and give them your VIN and they would give you the info. They’re under new ownership, so that might not be the case anymore. Here’s an old Dinan brochure, which might help you.
