    Winning on ease of use

    So after 3 Petronix failures, I made the leap for this. Installation instructions are well written and well adapted to TR8 specifics. The ECU manual is a bit generic and was not much help. Clint at TWS was available every step of the way, don't think I would have got this done without his help. NOTE: If you have factory AC, talk to Clint before ordering, the coil pack mount needs to be modified. the standard tune is good, needs a few tweaks. BTW-The software is not Mac compatible, you will need a PC.
