ECM Bugs anyone?

Okey truck really freaked me out tonite. Trucks been running great. Pretty much lives on Extreme Street tune. Today i left went to lowes, left truck running in parking lot, came out went to wally world. Turned truck off started back up driving home and truck just lost its balls. Boost was about 5 psi off normal max boost etc. and truck was just draggin @$$. Came home threw sct on. No Codes. Reloaded same program back in and truck hauls butt again. Whats the dealio? I have had this problem 1 other time i think, is this something that just happens once in a while with custom tuning?

I've never experienced that. I do get some weird shifting once in a while. I would contact Eric and see what he thinks about it. If anybody has seen this before it would be him. I think he has experienced everything that can happen with the custom tuning.

I've had it happen once with DJ's tunes too. Unloaded it and when I reloaded it the next time all was well. I'm not sure why it happens, but I don't think its uncommon once in a while? Scared the crap out of me when it happened. That was last winter and hasn't happened since.

my chip has just not worked for like a day or two then came back on but i think it was because i didnt get a good connection when i put it on. with a tuner i would think it would have to be in the tune itself
