Sounds good so far.
My previous tuned turbo car was like a domino effect.

Coming from a 2010 GSR Evo X I know exactly what you mean. That's a large part of the reason I got rid of her. Blew off the FPR line, cracked an in tank fuel hose at random, had it replaced, tune all of a sudden went like a half point lean (I suspect due to a crimped fuel line under the pump that was un crimped after I was fidgeting with it and reinstalled the pump housing) my tune swung a point richer, and was worried that the potential damage from the lean/rich scenarious on E-85 could have damaged something and just kept having random problems with little things that were starting to add up. Plus the stock clutch was on the way out likely after somehow surviving 20k miles of 400ftlb at the wheels.

What problems have you had since Tuned?

one evening during show off mode I somehow started to upload the stock tune and when it said do not unplug I unplugged after a little computer plug in and some help from the studs at H&S they got me back Rollin. Dido on back tires!!!
