Unhappy PLEASE HELP!!!!!

So I just purchased a stage 1 PCM and injectors from DODGETHIS on this site. Handed them over to my mechanic along with the included install instructions and explained what the stage kits were. The sticker on the PCM says "Not for use in emission controlled vehicles" so he, being emissions certified, is not willing to flash my VIN and install because he fears getting in trouble with the state of Washington. Has anyone had this issue? What can I do to work around this? PLEASE, any thoughts or ideas!!!

Flight systems can flash it for you. Then you can install it yourself. And avoid you mechanic altogether.

Greetings from the Philippines! My vacation is almost finished and I couldn't resist to log in here! Lol

Anyway Syked Ecu can do it too and his price is reasonable however like flight systems, you will need to pay for shipping back and forth. It will end up by costing about 70 bucks. Not too bad, but much easier to find another mechanic and get him to use his snap on or similar tool to flash it for you.

When you go to the new mechanic, if he asked, tell him or will be a race track only car, when you swap in the stage 1 comp and you won't use it on the street. You might try this with your current mechanic too. That should assuage his fears.

PM sent to him, thanks. Installing the PCM myself looks simple but what about the injectors? What is the process for that and dealing with the fuel system? Thanks for any info! Jordan

Does anyone know if one of these companies is better/faster/lower priced than the others? I will weigh my options and try and get this done asap.

I just noticed you are in Vancouver, WA. Syked is in Tacoma. Shipping will be fairly cheap. You could even drive there and he could probably do it on the spot for you, if you make an appointment to meet him, as he has other work aside from the ecu business.

You could install the larger injectors right away with your old ecu, but it may run slightly rich, and then swap in the ecu later once its flashed.

Another idea is going back to your guy and asking if you signed a waiver stating you'll only use it at the track in stage 1 trim. That might work and be the easiest solution for you

You can get it VIn flashed.
