Default Stage 1 PCM Reflash PROBLEM!!!

Ok so i got my PCM from FWDPerformance and well the dealers say they are unable to reflash it because the existing VIN on cannot be reflashed to a new one. has anyone else had this problem? Ive checked with 2 local dealers so far with the same answers, I have no idea what to do

Don't go to a dealer, send it to Flight Systems...They charge you $50 plus shipping ( about $12 each way ) and they know what to do.

I would assume if you provide her your VIN# and current mileage and dont drive the car, she could get it flashed.

I just purchased a stage one from cindy at FWD performance and she told me they don't reflash. She told me to take it to a dealer, flight system is backed up three weeks.

WOW, really? I never had that with Flight Systems. They always flashed the VIN right away and shipped it back to me the same day or the next

Talking Re: Stage 1 PCM Reflash PROBLEM!!!

Damn guess I got lucky then. When u install the stage 1, does ur mileage go back to zero on the screen below the speedo? Cuz Cindy never asked for my mileage so I never gave it to her, I just gave her my vin number and she said shed flash it but it'd add a 4 week wait.
