Supercharged....but cant go anywhere

My car's been on the operating table for a week now and I don't have a brain for it yet. Does anyone have a G-Power tune laying around somewhere on your computer I could load up on my car? I'm done with the install and got the flash cable, but I can't do anything but look at the car...... Thanks for the rant space.

Its been paid for over a week now, but G-Power still wont email it to me yet. Does it take long to do? I was hoping for them to send it to my email by today. But it looks like they are already off for the weekend.

You have no choice but waiting for G-Power to email you the tune.

If you're talking Germany, I got an e-mail last Friday from a G-Power guy telling me he was gone until the New Year...starting 23 November. Hope for you that wasn't everyone in their shop.

Thanks for making me feel better!!

I shoulda picked up the ESS kit Roman was selling. This will be a nightmare if they are on winter break already. I dont want to have to fly over to Germany to pick it up in person.

Don't worry too much, a company like G-power can not afford to be off of business for that long, there's certainly a good reason why they have'nt send it yet and I'm sure you'll get it in the beginning of next week, it's a fairly quick process, should'nt take more then a couple of hours unless they are really busy! But you, do you have a good reason for not choosing ESS!?

Seriously I ampatise with you but be patient and mostly have fun with your newly found power!

I can tune it if you are desperate, but I'd wait for them to get back to you since you already paid for it.

Guys... I think it's rude and tackless to pour salt into this poor guys wounds, kick a guy while he's down... geesh.
But while we're on the topic. Did I email my software to Roman at 12AM on a Saturday night??? YES!!
Did Roman have to wake AJ up at midnight to get my tune or me??? Probably not cuz the dudes an effin vampire and doesn't sleep.
Did AJ have my tune back to me at 2AM on a Saturday night??? YES!!!! ESSFTMFW!!!
But seriously GPOWER is top shelf and a bad ass set-up! I'm sure they'll get you all hooked up Next week!
Good luck, keep us posted

They said I need to wait for G-Power . They don't have the ability to do the tuning software. I guess I will just have to wait for them to open up again. I hope they will send it to me on Monday though. BTW, the test pipes look nice. I plan on putting them on after I can move the car to my lift. I'm glad my neighbor was kind enough to give them to me and not try to steal them. I'll post a review after everything is installed. Thanks for the help Sal.

Im in the same boat as you, any luck in getting the G-Flash software to recognize your DME? I cant get past that. Who is you contact at G-Power? I am trying to get my car up and running soon.

If only I could.... I just got a tune from G-Power, but I am getting a Engine Malfunction Reduced Power when I turn on the car. No check engine light is on and also no other codes are thrown when I read the codes using the G Power software. I'm not sure what it could be, but car turns over and idles pretty good. I just wish I could go faster than 20mph right now. I will share my experience as soon as all is corrected.
