What is your opinion of the interface? Also once changes have been made how long does it take to upload the new values to the PCM?

UPDATE

Write time is less then 2 minutes

Overall my impresson of the tuner is that it is SWEET!!!!!!

I just diid my first write 2 days ago and the power is very noticeable and throttle response has increased tremendously!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way it only took 10 days from ordering it to getting it to work. There was very little lag time. AND you can i used a BELKIN USB to R232 cable to mate the laptop and interface and had no problems at all!
