I had something interesting happen that I just wanted to post in case it helps anyone. I had been on the Alpina flash for a while, switched to the older flash and liked it a bit better than the original flash file, then decided to try the 2011 US Sport Flash 7603527.
I flashed it a few months back and then the next day went to my GIAC dealer and upgraded from stage 2 to stage 2 race flash from Giac (which get's rid of the check engine light for catalyst). After that I noticed a weird boost oscillation only in 6th gear at part throttle, like getting on the highway. Was always around 2500-3000 RPM, never happened before, so thought maybe was the Giac flash. I pulled any codes I had and noticed I had a low pressure fuel sensor code, so I replaced that and it did not make a difference, still had the oscillation.
Was thinking about it one day and realized I had put the trans flash on just before the Giac flash and had not driven enough to know if the trans flash may have introduced the issue or the Giac Flash, so last week I flashed the transmission back to the Alpina flash and the oscillation appears to be gone and has not happened in a week now.
I am not sure if it is just the trans flash causing the issue on my 2008 car or if it is a combo of the GIAC software and the trans flash not getting a long or maybe the engine making too much torque and the newer trans flash doing something?
Either way, just wanted to let people know if they get what feels like a boost oscillation in high gear with that trans flash, that it seems to be the flash and the Alpina flash seems fine.
