Did a search in Tampa. There seems to be 2 different areas. A cheap, crappy, ghetto area, and a really high priced area, with no real middle ground between them. Not sure if I'd fit into either of those neighborhoods. Have my agent (my sister) searching in Clearwater and Hollywood right now.

Hollywood!

Im not sure how you'd handle Hollywood. Its a big town with lots of different areas, regions, etc. Lots of really nice neighborhoods though. Cool downtown area, and beach. Nicer out east IMO than west.

Hollywood, Florida. I'm not moving to California anytime soon. My aunt and uncle live out there (Calabasas/Agoura Hills) and if they're the norm, its not for me.

Hollywood, FL is a big town? Its only 27sq miles and got 145k people, and 5100 people per sq mile. My zip code alone is 2.5sq miles and 42k people (16.5k per sq mile), so I think i'd be okay with Hollywood. Way less people than I'm used to. Its just a matter of if they're old and senile, young assholes or normal decent people. I'm seeing that only 15% are over 65, which must be nice. 20% are under 18 though. Not so nice.

Big is relative. Its not New York :)

Id imagine Hollywood is the largest city population wise in Broward County, no?

Nope, Ft Lauderdale according to Wiki at 165k. Then comes Pembroke Pines and then Hollywood.

Interesting. Now I feel like a statistic :)

Theres tons of cool areas in Broward, I prefer out east myself. Lived out west forever but everything out there is just new, I like a little old school here and there ;)

Hollywood's out. Houses are too small in my price area. In Central FL, I can get 3,000 sqft for $170k. In Hollywood, they're like $200k for 1500 sqft. I'm not a beach person, so its not worth paying more to be by the coast.

Back on topic. Is there ANY chance? I'm working with Burger right now on their Stage 2 piggyback, but they say if somebody released a flash that they'd be willing to work with that company to stack with their piggyback for even more power.

why bother stacking if you have PCM control, I dont follow that reasoning...?

Theres nothing thats going to happen too quickly. We've spoken to some guys who have some BMW stuff, but nothing has been ironed out and we have not yet begun any internal development. New tuner drives a C63 AMG too, just to make it worse ;)

Maybe for the same reason as you do it with the Puck? I don't know. They say they can't go any further with just a piggyback because of something in the PCM.

They're making 70+hp and 90+ft/lbs at the wheels with an aggressive tune in the piggyback, so the power is there. Gotta admit I'd like to see another 75 or so of each.

Forget the C63. No power in an N/A motor. Biturbos work better.

If you need to get into the pcm to get rid of a limiter, so you can run more inline trickery, you are doing it wrong :)

Once your in the PCM, theres no need for an inline unless its to somehow make on the fly changes.

On the diesels, thats what a puck or one of the many inline boxes are for, to add power on the fly. The pucks make great power, but cant address TM, speed limits, rev limits, etc...where the pcm gets you all of that, plus the ability to command the pcm to make the truck do what the inline was tricking it to do if you choose.

They need to remain relevant. If the piggyback is supplanted, they lose their sales. So using both keeps their sales and also makes more power possible.

Besides, until you guys do something, they're the only reasonably priced game in town. Dinan gets $3k+ for a flash tune, way out of most peoples budgets.
