    Probably not, takes time to get the job done right the first time, but I honestly don't know, maybe Frost will chime in.

    I sent out my computer to Frost by priority mail on a Saturday. Got it back on Wednesday of that week. I'm really impressed. I was prepared to only notice some difference since this is a mail-order type tune, but this really was worth the $125 and more. I have a 2002 WS6 / Auto with only a lid and catback. Every shift is much firmer and quicker. The car doesn't hunt around at low speeds like it did before. From a stop or slow roll the power comes on much smoother and harder. Top end also feels stronger.

    Getting the computer out was simple, back in was the same. Just remember to disconnect the battery before pulling the computer. Reinstall is the reverse but be sure to put the gaskets on the plug side and gently seat them and only tighten to snug (torque spec is on the top of the harness plugs, something like 5-6 lbs).

    On first start-up it acted like it always does when the battery has been off for a while but settled down in the first 5 miles. I know the computer has more to learn yet since my first ride was only about 15 miles but I'm happy now.

    Easiest and most effective mod I've done to the car. Highly recommended.

    i did mine overnight and he got it done the same day he received it. He also overnight it back so it took a total of 3 days for me. If you talk to him he will do his best to get it to you as fast as he can. It depends also on the postal service you pick.

    mine took 5 days i think, if you send him the cost of overnight he can do that for you. He does a great job and the turn around is good regardless.

    Hey guys, thanks for the support.

    Almost every bolt-ons tune goes back out same-day. The rest are next-day. Most of the shipping time is up to the customer as to how he picks to send it in and how he picks to get it back.

    For another $100, you can buy a calibration loaded to a certified, remanufactured PCM to avoid the delay of sending in yours.

    Thanks again.

    Good to know!! I'm thinking this will be one of my, if not my next, mod. Sounds like a worthwile mod for the money.

    As far as the tranny shifting, did you get the torque mgmt completely removed?
