    Size and weight of a PCM??

    Hey Guys,

    I have two choices when it comes to my re-tune with Frost.

    First one is to buy a refurb PCM and have it sent over ready to go.

    Second is send mine to Steve with a speedy courier to save buying another.

    If i send mine i need the dimensions and weight of a PCM!!

    I don't really want to take mine out of the car as i am sure one of you guys
    must have one on the bench and are able to run a rule over it and stick it
    on the kitchen scales!!??

    Once i know these specs i can start to get prices for the shipping.

    Thanks in advance

    Mine is actually out of the car and I can weigh and measure it when I get home from work tonight. I do know that it fits in the USPS medium flat rate box just fine.

    Hey Will,
    I really appreciate the info but once armed with this info and typing that into various
    courier sites the costs vary from a bit daft to taking the p*ss!

    It will be easier to order a refurbed PCM with my tune installed and probably close to
    a price if i sent mine over.

    The huge upside of this is i can order from Frost even before i get my headers and stuff sent over
    so i can plug in the Frost tune directly the install is done!! Will call him tomorrow.

    I did that same thing when I did my first round of mods. Bought a refurbed PCM and had him load the tune to it so that it was just a simple swap not taking long and it lets me keep my original as a spare in case anything happens. No actual car down time.
