Wade-0 said:Wow! Sounds like EVERYTHING at TXS is breaking lately. Maybe they just don't want to dyno tune anymore. Just like their unichip programming equipment "broke" just as everyone started picking them up secondhand.
That doesn't come as a shock to me. What pisses me off is that you and Phil both made it very clear that you would continue to support the unichip, and I asked you both directly if you would before I bought mine. Why no remarks about buying it secondhand then? I really love your snotty attitude when dealing with customers in a public forum too. Just because I didn't buy it from YOU doesn't mean dick. I bought it off a guy who used the cash to buy a new UTEC, because you were shafting all your existing unichip customers on the trade in program. Good luck with your "business" and I hope everyone reads this before they think about ordering something from younmyeti said:I personally never felt we should reprogram used unichips, but was over-ruled on that decision.
Huh? Is 100% profit not enough for you or what? (I'm not familiar with unichip -- are they profiled, like Cobb, where you just reprogram it the way the customer says, or do you dyno tune? Either way you're making a killing)nmyeti said:I personally never felt we should reprogram used unichips, but was over-ruled on that decision.
the reason i asked is because when I called TXS and asked them if it will work on a 2003, they point blank told me that IT WON'T. or were they just trying to do away with the unichip?!?Wrinkleboi said:the 02 unichip will work on the 03, but there is no harness for the 03 to make it plug n play. i think thats how it works, but if i'm wrong someone please correct me. i would suggest you look at the cobb chip or something else and not bother with a unichip at this point.
back on topic...
I believe the same thing is happening with XX tuning in CT. what's wrong w/ all the dynapacks?nmyeti said:As for our dyno our driver's side rear hub is not reporting a power or RPM reading. We are working with dynapack to get it sorted, but it is unlikely that they will provide us with a quick solution. The dyno failure hits me directly in the wallet, and I hope the issue is resolved quickly.
We were reprogramming around 30-50 a month for free at its peak. Often times we'd have to spend a great deal of time on the phone with customers who sent the unichip with a note of their modifications (Some of which we didn't have a program for) or with people that didn't send any way to pay for return shipping. Usually we took about 1 week to turn around the chips because we would do them in large batches to try to make the most efficient use of time.qoncept said:Huh?

Wade-0 said:I've heard that it will work, but will also cause a CEL. At any rate, I think it's safe to say that if it involves a unichip, you're on your own now.
We are making people return their unichips to us for $250 credit on a new UTEC. We are only taking returns from people that bought this directly from us or one of our dealers.hippy78 said:You're giving people who paid $200 for unichips a discount when you wouldn't give me a discount when I baught it from you guys for a LOT more?
Every 04 user has access to the temporary fix software. They can use it quite safely.hippy78 said:
I've been waiting months for your updade on the utec(not that I really need it but it would be nice) along with a lot of people who baught the utec and can't even use it safely.
It was basically determined that our participation in the WRX hackers forum was more then enough to cover these situations. That forum has grown to the point where it's the largest single repository of UTEC information. Our tuning guide would have been great, but there is one minor problem. You can't explain feel or sound in a flat paper and you can't tell people to tune to a given AFR when they don't have the proper tools. Most of the people i talked to wanted to know what EGT they should be tuning their cars to run. It doesn't work that way...hippy78 said:When I first got my utec, I read the manual and kept seeing "UTEC TUNING GUIDE" which was supposed to help people like me learn how to tune my car the utec.
Sometimes we do well, and sometimes we screw up.hippy78 said:What's the deal?
