Was the hardware causing the problem ever identified? I'm trying to locate a computer tomorrow that will work with a k-line car I've been having difficulties with.
I have a intel core 2 duo 2.2ghz macbook running xp sp3. Worked perfect on k-can cars.
Having the issue some k-liners have been having. 8 hr read time, slow flashing LED on cable, write fails on startup. Said something like "could not authenticate ecu"
Best bet is a laptop or desktop with an AMD processor. I did recently get a new laptop with a Intel core i5 haswell I'll test out tomorrow after my exam, but I've had no luck with anything Intel based on my car. "
" now everyone who has had their belt shred is freaking out had it happen to me in july and it took me and hour to peel all the shreds out of every or phis of the pulley system .
still have the oil from my oil change after this happened at my shop in milk jugs ,now im going to have to go strain it and see if there is anything in it . "
ANY aftermarket turbo maker that produces their own line of turbos started off with Garrett clones, and most of them, that is still what they offer, sure they throw their own twist on them, CEA, Triplex bearings, Turbonetics "big shaft", etc. Bottom line Garrett is the roots all these turbos sprout from. Turbonetics was one of the first back in the 70's. In my eyes, if prices are similar I am always going Garrett if possible. By this I mean the CHRA, with the wide range of housings available from many sources that will fit, you can go nuts with fitment. Those EFR's are just too damn big.
That's exactly what I've found, turbonetics is a great option for less money, usually doesn't quite spool as quick. BW I also found to be pretty bulky, just didn't see anything that sparked my fancy, and Precision just seemed like a cheap knock-off of Garrett, no lie though they make power! lol
BTW, was hoping you'd chime in, and glad you did. "
" Got the plugs changed . Pb blaster does wonders, car idles a little rought. Check engine light came on, I checked the codes and they were a miss fires. If the gap on the plugs is too close could that be the issue of rough idle? "
