Wayne Hartwig on pirate does lifetime flashes for $150. Seems to be getting a really good rep over there.

x2. He asked me what I wanted to do with it, how radical or stock I wanted to be, etc. Came back with all the excess wires pulled out the harness and all wires labeled for easy hookup. Expensive but quality.

That guy is a jackass. His deleted thread was full of him stating so much shit that was wrong he had it deleted to cover up his stupidity. He's so ignorant he told Bryce his mail order tune would out perform any tune Bryce could get done on a dyno...........cause MI doesn't have anyone good at dyno tuning LSX engines I wouldn't send him anything even if it were for free. My $.02

I stand corrected.
Lesson for me in only going to a couple sources for info.
Sorry Becky.

lt1350.com did mine. they do Lt and Ls harnesses. cost me about 400 bucks for them to make mine a stand alone harness,delete mass air flow senser and reflash and upgrade ecm(you get about 10hp). And you get $50 reflashes for life.

I remember reading the thread that feva4u references. I LOL'd. If I remember right, when questioned about his unrealistic gains he told 95geo could buy a controller from him and rent some dyno time to prove him wrong. He could not produce any dyno data to back up his big claims.

Gonna stick with the 241
When it comes time to flash the computer ill give your guy in Maryland a call, see what kinda $$ it will be. Sounds like he goes to great detail to simplify things. Thats always a plus

Becky,
I did my 6.0 swap about 4 years ago. His charge to rework the wiring harness and flash the ECM was $500. I have no idea if the price has changed but he sure was great to work with.

I had Jims performance do my harness as well and it cost $570 and he reflashed my PC and all that.. Everything is nice and neat and labeled. Just make sure you read the labels and not rely on what connectors fit where..

Good guy to deal with and will stay on the phone hours trying to help..

That guy is an ignorant jackass. I called him out a few times for claiming to make HUGE gains that are only realistic with a cam swap and then some. Like a 450hp 08 5.3L with only his calibration. His way of quantifying it was a 1/4 mile time and mph with a stopwatch or something like that. And then he guessed the weight of his jeep at something like 6k and you can see the room for errors multiplying.

I don't know everything there is to know about calibrations and I certainly don't claim to. He was making claims and spouting information off that only made him dig a deeper hole. When I contacted him via PM I approached him very seriously and professionally. He just talked in circles and wouldn't go into any detail or even consider my offer to validate his product. If I can remember where I put the saved PM's I'll post them up..... It's good for a laugh.

Jims performance- great company with great products.

Wayne Hartwig- bad for your engine!

Hmmm, I was not aware of any of this. I'm glad this has come out. I won't be going to him when the time comes like I had planned.
