groupbuy on POWERCHIP ecu tune

wusup fellas me and some guys on the forum got together and contacted POWERCHIP in costa mesa, ca if we can get a special pricing like they did for "Frank w" on their vw tuning day event. We got a couple of cars that are already down.. this will either take place on oct 9th or 16th at their facility for same day tuning just bring your ride.. pm me for pricing or if you have more questions...

to the admin or whoever it may concern...
"POWERCHIP" is one of your sponsors on the website i got permission from matt at powerchip to do this so dont send me a another infraction notice

C300 Sport LOADED
if we do tune and take the car in for service at dealer, would they reset the ecu and erase the tune?

no as long as you tell your service advsor to not reset the ecu and i believe powerchip has some type of policy where they can reflash if dealer resets your ecu..

white and whiter
if anyone local wants to try it i can bring it to local meets if anyone can't make their decision. you might also want to get the K&N filters too if you don't already have.

2009 Arctic White/Black C350 with NAV pkg, ipod integration, 40% HO tint, and 18" 5-spoke AMG wheels
Hmm...I've been looking into doing a Rentech upgrade on my vehicle, which gets me 22HP, but they want around $1200. What is the turn-around time on this?
