he tried mad hard.... just no gains on any performance.... i briefly looked over what he was doing, and he is so smart he just needs more time on the t7 ecu hes not there yet but with some fine tooth combing over hes gonna be good. He is a great person in genral and defintly went way outta his way to try to help out saabers..he is on some next level shit way over many peoples head when it comes to saabs.. and i know it kills him that he couldent throw it together but we all been there. Practice makes perfect so keep up the work mike d.. later eddie

Hes knows his stuff, hes got a crap ton of mechanical knowledge, and knows what hes doing with tunes.

Just needs to get the flashing down pat.

I stand by him.

Ecus do cook ocaionally, thats why me like many other people who work with them keep extras around,
i apoligize with the tune not working out, i will be more than happy to fix it if you can ever make it up in my direction, or the next time i come down there. it at the time was difficult to tell what was happeneing because NYC does not have proper space to get the cars out of second gear during adaptation.
uploading and download seam to always be a sticking point, and every day i take mesures to make it more reliable.. trust me when i say that conditions on the sidewalk of queens outside a church in the dark were less than ideal for uploading, downloading and soldering

here are pictures from the event.

Yea I spent pretty much that whole day with mike(i took those pics lol), and to be honest I'd love to work with him again.

The tune didn't work out exactly as desired but basically we ran out of time and didn't have the proper environment for it.

Plus I got to meet holeshot and a few other saabers so day well spent, and i def. learned tons from mike.

I just got my ecu tuned by Mike tonight. My t7 tune went by trouble free. He was showing me the differences between t5 and t7 so I think it was just a matter of familiarity and the conditions for you guys. If Mike D wrote a bible on this stuff, I'd buy it haha.

All I can say about my tune today??? "DAYUM."
My face hurts from my evil grin and if I don't stop racing people i'm going to find trouble soon.
'98 9000 5sp/manual.
Awesome time. I'm only surprised that Mike doesn't have an ECU connector that plugs directly into his brain. --soon. "It's a Stage 0."

Thanks Mike!
