    bad tune or dumb guy??

    well i sent my computer away a couple months ago to thunder raceing to get it flashed, the basic tune they call it. well now the car is running like shit, called a couple of people an they said they didnt tune it right. Maryland proformance said they coud fix it just have to get the computer back to stock, i went in to the GM shop they said they would do it. They tried to times an the flash wouldnt take. he said there was some type of lock in my computer that wouldnt let it reprogram. so now im lookin into buying a new pcm maybe idk yet still trying to trouble shoot.

    the car was missing real bad loading up at idle if i would sit in trafic or a stop, put new O2s in because it was throwing codes saying bank 1&2 were to lean.
    if any1 out there has any idea feel free to say!!!!!

    modds are:
    LT headers
    3in y pipe an 3in cut out
    K&N drop in
    slp air lid(stock)
    13lb fly wheel & RAM stage 2 clutch

    Have you tried contacting the company that tuned it to see if they could possibly resolve it? I'd try that first.

    I'd be MAD if they locked my PCM without telling me up front... The only reason it's done is to force you to work with them in the future. There is no super-secret way to tune a boltons car that they need to protect...

    If it's locked, it's locked. You'd need a replacement or to have them unlock it or release the key.
