Damn..... shipping the PCM via UPS or CP is going to be expensive.
It'* over $100 Cdn if I want it there by Tuesday the 5th.
It'* $70 Cdn if I want it there by Thursday.... which isn't really an option.

So for me to send it down, and back it'* going to cost over $200 Cdn..... because I need it by Friday the 8th....... thanks for the option Rogue, but I'm going to have to find another way.

I'm thinking tha mini AFC might be my best option........

Rogue, in your PM to me you wrote...

Obviously you will want to scan the car and adjust up or down as needed.
What is the "learn" time needed if I use the mini AFC?

I'm only asking because I *WAS* planning to take both cars down to the track.... switching the AFC is no big deal..... but when you put it on the car, does it have to learn or adjust to it before it starts to work properly?

No its an immediate effect. Your car may learn fuel trims a bit though over time. The AFC should be set to 95% to account for your larger injectors (see my other post).
