: Hey I was wondering other then them (Dinan,RMS) changing the injectors and adding a Vortech Supercharger and the plumbing, what else do they do? Do they put in some software?

Robert is right. The software mods are really 2 different units. One is a standalone unit developed by Dinan called 'Turbotronics-9' which remaps the HFM signal, to account for the extra air from the blower, and the second is their DME reflash through diagnostics port. In addition to removing the governer and raising the rev limits, like all their software does, it also performs the necessary ignition timing retard under boost, and fine tunes the other parameters for forced induction. In addition, it performs some proprietary 'tricks' to keep the OBDII software from adapting out the trim modifications called for in the closed loop maps.
