Re: wastegate spring related stuff


The following is an excerpt from an earlier email from Dan Bocek.  Has
there been some clarification that I've forgotten or missed?

begin excerpt

"The original intent of his call was regarding my ECU repair business, but
I finally asked him if he would care to comment about my earlier post
regarding his IA TQC computer resistor mods.  He said that in some cases, he
actually does modify the code in the TQC's, but that it depends on the
customer's intention for use of the vehicle and the level of
modifications the vehicle already has.  He was intentionally very vauge
about which vehicles got the actual chip mods and which got the resistor
mods, but he did say that included among the chip mods were vehicles
engaged in off-road competiton of one sort or another.  This implies to
me (and I'm only speculating here) that perhaps C.A.R.B. is playing it's
role in determining the haves vs. the have nots."


I would appreciate more detailed info on this, but right now it seems as if
the IA box may or may not alter the timing.  Doesn't sound like $800 worth
to me.
