I've got an S-Club-7 uh I mean F-Con-V sitting in my garage at the moment. I had it removed as i suspected it was causing an intermittent ignition fault (which it turns out it wasn't).
Question is - does anybody know anyone (or company) who can reprogram & reinstall them?
I only know of TDI-PLC (in Essex i think)
Thanks

Dave, Im sure the lads at Powerstation may know, they seem to be very good in the mapping area!

Howdy..

There are only about two places in the UK... (last time I checked)

HKS themselves.. normally Hiro or Bruce...... and TDI now have the license to use the software...But they are w*nkers!


A few other places claim to program the FCON, but just HKS themselves.

Speak to Micheal at HKS.

I have an FCON V if anyone makes me an offer.. it just needs a new harness.

HKS are the only people in the UK who can tune an FCON V. TDi claim to be able to, but they recently tried on a MKIV supra and complained the the map in the FCON V was totally wrong and had to be removed and started again. Funny really as it was HKS UK who did the map in the first place.

Go to HKS, and dont ever go to TDi.

I would be interested to know anybody else who has good or bad experiences with TDI as I was always willing to give them the benefit of doubt, but recent events have changed my mind...anybody else?

Everyone who I have spoken to who has ever dealt with TDI has said "never ever go there".
Interesting!

Branners,

Within the GT4 community, all are agreed that TDi is NOT the place to go to for work. Some still go to get parts but never for work to be done.

Why is this - something to do with the C/R of their turbo conversions?

Compression ratio - when ever I read about their converstion they dont seem to lower the C/R

Reprogram for F con V??
I think reprogram is no possible with the F con V.Usless by HKS themself.
The F con Pro. is reprogramable with the software from HKS "power writer".But I think it only comes in Japanese. and it is only sold it Japan thur the licensed dealer.
the Installations in easy .Just buy the harness connect to the stock ECU.. Plug and Play.I got one for my Toyota Supra TT.

Thanks
