That's not really that high, look at APR for example, they are $499 - $599 for most VW flashes and over $2000 for Porsche.

In regards to our Turbo Kit, we will be building a custom tune (have already started testing out 1st version of the flash). Once it is 100% and we are happy with it. We will release it and the kit at the same time. Our current pricing structure on the kit is going to include the flash as part of the package to save you all $$$ on the whole deal :)

Will the flash you have ready for the turbo affect this current flash or add to the gains from it? I just see no point in paying $400 for the flash and the getting the turbo set up and finding out I just wasted $400.. If that's the case then no thanks, I'll just wait for the turbo.. For anyone who doesn't plan on being turboed then go ahead and do it before it gets any higher..

On a side note Crock was in contact with SFR for a while now and it seems over the last few weeks that number has went from $250 up to $400 now... Why the sudden changes? I understand that we have a new car and this is the first but there is no need to rape from the start unless repeat business doesn't matter?? Just my 2 cents.. I still stand by TK because you have been fare but I don't think I'll be looking at SFR anytime soon... I say if they wanna draw a crowd I would make the drive for $300 a pop if we had ten or so come up and get tuned.. That'd be an easy three grand especially if there set up is gonna be a plug and play system that takes em 20 minutes.. I think it sounds pretty fare...

Heard the same thing...that's why I was saying "Wow!:eek: why so high?" That is quite a price difference!

400 is cheap for a dyno tune lol

generally in the gm world (using HPtuners) its 100 to unlock the car then AT LEAST 50 bux an hour after that plus dyno time these are the very minimum numbers.

theres a place in NJ that chargers 385 for just a flash.. no changes for your car or anything

you northeastern US people are lucky, in my budget I've already planned on relegating about a grand to tuning and dynoing. Wish I could make it to this and actually be able to afford it lol, would be great to have something to help out while I await the day I can afford to turbo this car=]

Hey Orange,

Each flash will have to be done specifically for the parts on the car. The TURBO flash will be much different from the CAI / Exh flash. So they will be separate flashes. If a customer buys the CAI, Exh & Flash #1 from us and then say 6 months later orders the kit. We will definitely work out some sort of discount for the 2nd flash. This is a brand new offering and partnership with Seoulfulracing so the details are not 100% yet. But if both flashes are purchased from us. We WILL offer a discount on the Turbo Kit Flash.

In regards to the rates: Those are the rates right from Seoulfulracing for this DYNO event. We are not marking them up or making any money on the flash portions. The only thing we are charging for is the DYNO time and that is at a substantially discounted rate.

Will the flash you have ready for the turbo affect this current flash or add to the gains from it? I just see no point in paying $400 for the flash and the getting the turbo set up and finding out I just wasted $400.. If that's the case then no thanks, I'll just wait for the turbo..

The weekend of Aug 7th & 8th at our facility in Windsor Locks, CT. Starting early Afternoon on Saturday and all day Sunday.

where will this be done at?

Yes, these flashes will be US & CAN Spec available :)

Nothing yet, the release of it and all of the details will be on the DYNO on Aug 7th - 8th as the power is proven with before and after runs!

what exactly is the deal with this flash? is there a thread on it?

Thanks everyone, this is going to be a sick gathering and a true "power to surprise", KDM is HERE to play event! Look forwards to seeing you all there.

I would assume, like my 2007 Honda Civic Si with the FlashPro system, the flash is going to be user friendly?

I would like to have my '10 Koup Flashed but of course, would like to see the dyno results. I m not sure about flashing a stock car, and what gains that one could possibly see. With my civic, the "Race Flash" calibration lowers the VTEC engagement points, and changes cam angles, but also allows for user to change the injector sizing and much much more ( FlashPro Civic Si ) I'm hoping and assuming that the software will be somewhat similar to this?

I wish that I could be present with the Kia or my Turbo'd Si, but I'm currently stationed in GA. I've purchased two kits from TurboKits.com and I know that you all are very qualified in your work.

Good luck to all that go...
