    Exclamation 2013 RECALL for engine management software

    So has anyone else here had the recall performed and noticed if it made any difference in how the car performs? I am scheduling mine and then will be comparing the ecu files to see what they change from the 2013 stock file. Should be interesting.

    I got my software update on Thursday. I've noticed that the turbo flutter has dissipated. I use to get it depending on the temperature/humidity outside or if I had the A/C on or not. Overall though I have not noticed any since the software update.

    How much out of pocket did you have to pay for the new engine? Still have the VT?

    I spent a little over $7k, but I bought a KDM tuners build. I'm trying for engine cost reimbursement and 50% labor.
