Otherwise the garage thats doing the tuning for me can carry out the same job for literally almost $10,000 cheaper (the whole job that is). The only reason I gotta do the two in two different workshops is because the dealer will install everything but they have clearly told m that they can't tune bcuz they dont have a programmer. Which I find a mornic excuse because here you're doing the mods and issuing letters of safety standards but I could take the car to the tuner and do whatever I want...perhaps keep boost 13-14psi which I reckon isn't too healthy for the engine...but the dealers here care only about the money.

But again, thanks for the offer..so...going back to all what all you guys said about injectors and belts...I don't know if the injectors will be changed or not...and about the SC belt...not sure abt how that works either...which is why I will ask again, is it ok to push the car onto a to a flatbed tow truck in neutral with the engine off or would that too hurt the car??
Wow that Sucks Good Luck

Ted.

That's crazy. I'd be scared letting a main dealer do any work like that !! hell, I wouldnt trust most of them to do an oil change nevermind fit a camshaft and supercharger !!!

But as for the last comment, yes you will be fine to push the car onto a trailer, and it could well be your best option.

in that case why don't you get a tuner from Ted, the after the car is done sit in the parking lot with laptop and tuner and allow him to do the tune via email, and you load it.

at least then you will be safe to drive it, even if you do end up at another shop for the final tune..

just saying, if you are over $10K out of pocket now, whats a couple hundred to get a tune and handheld from Ted..
