It amazes me how the preious owner could live with the lack of power and surging for 9 years and 75k. 5 minutes on google found the answer for me.
I work in Quicklane but in canton, I think we charge half an ht labor and takes about 45min to do. 1/2 hr labor basically $50

The biggest issue I noticed was the "Lacks Power On Initial Pull Away" and "Surge Under Light Load Steady State Operation (2000-3500 RPM, All Gears)" Cold and warm.
If the TSB refash fix's this, I'd be happy.

I do see 75% of these problems outlined on the SVTOA site.

Get your dealer tune then, but don't say I didn't tell you so

There's a reason everyone and their mother says to get a real tune as a first modification

I still stand by my "keeping it stock" statement. Tune = Not stock as far as Solo rules are concerned.
