Question Need Opinion's

I am going to be taking my car in to get the clutch, and an annoying squeaking sound fixed (no idea where the squeaking is coming from) before I install my parts. BUT, heres my dilemma .......... My car doesnt really have any of the TSB problems anymore (I was getting the battery light and the surging when I first got the car, but now the car acts fine). I was still thinking about getting the new flash so the DSI would switch at 5000 rpm's, but I have heard a few people say thier car ran worse after the flash, and I dont want to mess my car up since its acting fine ........... Soooo, should I get the flash or not????? Thanks for any input.

That would be up to you, I would not try to fix something that is not broke. If you catch my drift on that. I happen to run great with the RLA6 reflash, going to the YRF0 and it tooks some time for all the bugs to work their way out before I ran and idle like the car should. Like I said, that would be up to you. Best of luck to you either way you go.

^^ why fix whats not broke bro. the only thing that you wold have worry about taking off for warranty reasons is the ORP. When you get everything post and tell how everything is running Im planning on getting pretty much the same setup as you. Good luck.

i agree with the above 2 posts, but it is great to have the runners switch at 5k rpm, i also didn't have any of the symtoms before the reflash, but i still ended up getting it, at first i did notice a little extra pull not much though, but after about a week the engine stalled all the lights came up (Bat, check engie, oil pressure, etc...) while i was coming off the highway cause i put it into neutral and was gonna decide to coast to the stop light after the on ramp but everything just shut off and i lost power steering, kinda scary but it only happened that 1 time, but afterwards everytime i went to reset my ecu it did it again after a week. i think that the ecu completed it's learning process that's why it stalled on me like that! but besides that problem nothing more! hopefully i was some help!
