Sorry I didn't respond to this, was in meetings most of the day, just saw it now. But it was a fun evening for sure. 5 Kappas at Tuxies and we drew our fair share of interest. Thanks Robo and Jim for showing up!!!

Now we need to firm up a date for the Mod Day.

I'm thinking the September 3-4 date works the best. How about the rest of you?

Cool. @Gabes Redline, @skersfan, @Taz, @Razz, How about you guys?

So far I have my fuel rail, charge pipe, high flow cat, and 5K springs coming. Fuel Pump should be getting ordered later this month. I also have a MagnaFlow exhaust to put on the GFs Veloster Turbo (though she's pressing for me to do it this weekend...told her we need to get my stuff moved and the garage cleaned FIRST...LOL) but that may happen Friday night before the mod day for us.

That would be labor day weekend, pretty sure. Start of College Football. Not going to miss that for any reason. Some great games on Saturday. Sunday I could make it though I think.

Razz,
Sorry to hear about the accident, hope you are getting better.

Will need to check with Robo, but I think I have the cables for both HPTuners and the one Trifecta uses if not the same. I had ordered one from Trifecta and I got the HP tuners stuff when I bought the Mallett.

Yea Razz, we got laptops to get you tuned. Hope you have been getting better. I believe I remember you mentioning something about the accident last you were on here.

Skersfan, I need to talk to you about how HP Tuners works with credits on cars. Usually it comes with 6 credits and our cars are 2 credits PER ECM. You can get an entire model year or entire model line up but that gets pricey. Credits are $50 each. I paid my for 4 credits to get my car hooked up to my buddy's HP Tuners. 2 were for the first ECM which then promptly died and another 2 for the new ECM.

So while we could get Razz hooked up on HP Tuners, he still would need the tune. May just be cheaper for him to go the HP Tuners route with the cable. I have a laptop that will be able to tune him using that if that's what he wants to do.

I didn't know that was labor day weekend...though I should have...but I'm good with that weekend if no one else has a problem with it.

I just meant he was able to use the stuff I got if he wanted to. I still have a some credits left, not sure if DDM used that stuff or not. I know I bought the trifecta specific cable.

The way the credits work skersfan is that when you decide to use the tuner on a car, it needs credits to "unlock" that car. You can read the tune, scan the car, and change the tune but if you want to save that tune for the car you downloaded it from, it has to be unlocked. In theory, I could download your Mallett tune, copy it over to MY ECM's tune and then write that to my car since MY ECM tune is unlocked even though, on my HP Tuners, your Mallett isn't unlocked. Once a car is unlocked, you don't have to use any more credits on it unless you physically change the ECM.

Now you can also get model year tunes, allowing you to tune any 2007 Sky with a 2.4 for example, for (I want to say) 6 credits. To do the same thing with a 2007 Solstice 2.4, you'd need 6 more credits. I think they may offer a special so that if you want to tune ANY Kappa, it's one big purchase of credits but I don't know anyone who has done that.

So DDM wouldn't have needed to use any credits if they used a tuner they have or used the HP Tuner you have. You would only need credits if you wanted to hook your tuner up and tune any other car. Right now, your HP Tuner interface only has your Mallett unlocked on it. (Granted you COULD add the yellow car and Skittles to it and use up your other 4 credits...)

For Razz to use the HP Tuners cable (which I believe Dave at DDM can send a HP Tuner file for the update) he would need to use 2 of your credits to use your HP Tuners to upload it. Once they are used, they're used and if Razz wouldn't be tuning his car after the initial upload, you would have 2 credits tied to his car and his car alone. Hence unless he wanted to tweak the tune after uploading (or wanted to spend the $100 on buying 2 more credits for you) he may be better off just renting the cable and borrowing the laptop.

Well, the date is set to Sept 3-4, 2016. All my parts are ordered. Springs and fuel rail are here. Cat and Charge Pipe are on their way. Fuel pump should be going out next week.

I also have a technical surprise for the built...more details to follow.

My understanding is Jim will be coming too with all his suspension bits so if you are interested in how the Pro-Beam, Venom brace and Backbone brace go on (though they are pretty easy) we'll be doing those too.
