i may not have a choice considering its on my registration renewal... took awhile but they have got me. my truck has NEVR been flashed, runs great (although i think it has started to leak from the rear main, seen this yesterday), but still engine wise... runs well. truck has had some romps on cold starts - and i know this flash will fix this. guess my concern is, will it cause other things to go wrong on the truck? i am of the "if it isnt broke dont fix it " mindset, and i dont want to be opening up a can of worms because of a flash. any thoughts?

thanks for the reply OT, i will make the appointment today. hopefully i can get in for it, i got 2 flats on the truck yesterday,lol. just my luck, and with 37's and only 1 full spare, it sits until i can try to change some tires around,lol. anyhow, i am not so afraid of the flash anymore. thanks.
ok flash was done. truck seems fine (ran fine before hand as well). however the turbo seems to be cycling a lot. changes pitch constantly - is that normal? and i have some extra buzzing when i turn the key ahead... otherwise its fine so far.

ohh and BTW oddly enough,,, despite the DMV having the recall notice on my renewal, they DID NOT need the paperwork when i renewed... so the flash was done for nothing....
