If I was selling a mod for a car and new that it did not perform like a horse, yet worked well. Would you say anything? I saw it in person, in this case there is no reason to ask ERT (or any other companies who make products).. EVERY UPGRADE HAS ITS DOWN SIDE.. even companies like ERT, shit Dinnan stoped selling turbo kits for the e30 m3 because people were over heating and over reving the cars and blowing them up!! If you buy a cold air intake from AEM (honda's), and you read the directions.. you will read where is says that in above 100 deg. temps you will lose hp and possibliy damage your engine. yet the kids who buy these products like how it works under opt. conditions so they dont care about the down sides..

So to conclude, if you take care of the car and check everything before HAMMERING on it with this kit I see no problems with it.. just like I said before, the weak link of this kit is the FMU. it controls the amount of fuel that goes to the motor, so I would say that it is vital.. if it calculates the amount of fuel wrong just once, KABOOMIE.. and that goes for all cars that use this device, not just ERT or DINNAN or even VW used this on the pre 90 supercharged cars..G60 corrado..

I am no expert, and have said this before. I was just throwing out some ideas and experences that I have had.. I mean no negative thoughts or actions against any one, especially ERT (I hope to have there product some day on my car)..

I also might recomend calling ERT.. good idea..
