If you're in pasadena, that's not too far from me. I'll be tuning my URD kit soon, just waiting for the FTC before the final installation steps.
If you'd like, I could probably help tune your retard map, or just turn it back a notch and see how that runs. I have a laptop and most of the other gear to tune.
I'm near Hollywood, not far from Glendale.
PS- Gadget, I was re-reading the U-tune guide and had a question- When you make changes int he FTC fuel and retard maps, is the change real-time, or do you have to flash or update the FTC for the change to take place?
