    Supposedly the dealer can see anyways if you have flashed anything, however I read info that states they can and then I also read info that says they cannot tell, but instead they will just see that the ECU "reset" which they have no proof.

    Either way its a risk, but I would like to know if they truely can tell if you flashed a map on the ECU or not.
    I have had my ecu reset at the dealer a couple of times.. So If that is the case I am well into the clear. i am actually going over on Friday for my clutch and to get flashed AGAIN. These damn error codes.

    I'm glad I found this thread. I have a '12 coming in shortly and was going to go the ap route again but tactrix seems like a heck of alot better both performance and cost wise. Gotta get that darn break in done first!! But I think I should have the tactrix cable and tune here ready when the day comes...I've not modded my '11 at all and intend to mod the '12 quite a bit more.

    Yup I was in your same shoes a month ago with my new '12. I ended up going the TP route and have love every minute of it.

    JW why did you trade in an 11 for a 12?

    I switched from a sedan to hatch. Silver to dgm..

    Stupid reasoning I know. But my dealer worked a good deal.

    haha no worries, we have all done stupider things than that and I can't say I blame you. I love my '12 hatch . Anyways, get the tactrix and you could even call up Eric from Torqued Performance to ask him any questions you might have. I know he spent a good 30 minutes with me on the phone ironing out every single question I had.

    Some other food for though. Some say to do the flash from day one because the stock map sucks(which it does, cause it runs pretty lean at times with WOT). However, if you are doing a proper break in period, you should not be doing any WOT to begin with which would not affect the motor. Either way, you can't go wrong with either option. Good luck and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Just get the 2.0 cable that's $169. No adapters needed for our cars. It's only if your going to use it in older models.

    Correct, Mac/OS X is not supported.
    Windows only.

    You could buy a windows laptop, tactrix and map for less than a cobb ap. I have an iMac but also have a windows 7 laptop for work (POS) but it should work. The other option would be to install windows for your Mac. I'm currently waiting for the tactrix store to get more cables in stock and plan to flash TP stage 1!
