Ordered Shark tuner today

I saw that ECS had the tuner for under $300 a few days ago and I was thinking about it. Then I found out they are now only selling refurb housings/units with new software in them for $165. Seemed too good to pass up. Seems like a good deal so I went for it. I hope it fixes my 1st and 2nd gear's lack of good throttle response.

Looking forward to finding out if tuning these cars is worth it...

Interested to hear what you think. Lowest I saw was $296 on Turner Motorsports. Hoping a reflash will help with SAI issues.

I think you can just call ECS. I saw them discounted just below $300. Then I got a call from the sales guy and he told me they dropped the price. The refurb units were being used as a a vessel so to speak for introducing the tune into the vehicle computer.
