    I've been watching that thread as well and hoping that the dealership will do it (HA!) so we will see....but subbed in case anyone pops on here with one and can flash ECU's. I do have an email into my service provider about the TSB and getting clarification for the MT.

    I would be interested to here what Kendall says. I did have a good experience purchasing but have heard that their service dept is lacking. However not from first hand experience.

    Oh they are lacking for sure, I've had several issues with them manipulating the truth so to speak. I had work done by them recently (rear end recall) and it is still weeping so I have that in the same email. I will let you know what I hear!

    Been back and forth with my service tech this week, I am bringing it in on Thursday to have them repair the rear end weeping (which they've done once already) and he stated he will hook the computer up to Techstream and see if the TSB will update or apply. So he's on board to try and hopefully isn't just bullshitting me, I will let you know results on Friday-ish.

    Awesome thanks. Good to here of someone up here is giving it a shot. I live in Seward so is hard to run up to the dealer but if you get documentation of them doing it I would def. schedule a visit. I would def. show them pictures of the tsb with the MT specific ecu listed. Good luck!

    Wow. Great work and good news. I did go ahead and order the tactrix. I wasn’t sure when I would be in anchorage next and was unsure of what the outcome would be. Good to here they worked with you. Thanks for all the heads up!

    No worries and best of luck! I have found so far that it is a good update, I could merge on the highway this morning without having to downshift and curse the world.

    Awesome! For me it’s that 1-2 shift and am hoping the throttle response is better.
