So I went in to get a stage 1 custom tune by a shop here in ATL that has an ex-Revo/Eurocharged guy that does their Audi tuning....did a baseline dyno run (341 on a dyno dynamics), so that was all good
Problem was when he went to do flash....couldn't communicate through port....we pulled ECU, cracked it open, and low and behold it had some sort of locked down chip in it (he couldn't even bench flash it)
Thoughts? Don't think it's APR or another tune....the program on it was all stock parameters, but chip was locked down
Do I buy a new stock ECU....a new chip and have Audi flash it to stock for me? What are my options?
