What was the original question
? Sorry - I don't frequent this site much anymore.
I've had the recall service preformed. I reinstalled the AP with the OTS map and performance was so-so, some knock here and there, but it was probably gas quality. OTS maps work well for most folks, but not great for everyone. I threw my AEM intake back on, and reflashed a map reconfigured by my tuner to work with the new ECU ROM. It's only been a few miles but it seems to be okay. I can follow-up later once the map has been fully learned.
As a part of the recall service, I purchased a set of spark plugs for replacement since they were going to be removed anyway. The outgoing plugs, which have been in for about 24k miles, looked okay.
I've gotta be honest - after the recall service, I was reluctant to reinstall the AP. Long story short - original engine blew at 6k miles (ringlands), rebuilt (as opposed to replaced) under warranty, and given a 100K mile warranty to appease any worries about longevity. I've had the car protuned by two different tuners, one of which is well known in SoCal (Church). Neither were able to make decent power as compared to others on this forum and on the facebook group (218whp/279wtq at 18.5psi, and 208whp/260wtq at 17psi, with an intake!). Something about my engine sucks.
So why reinstall when given this opportunity for a fresh start? I reinstalled the AEM intake, and AP anyway because the parts and tunes were already paid for, and to gain a window for monitoring the engine performance. At least now, I can monitor knock events, react to shitty gas, etc - which I wouldn't have if I didn't reinstall. I'm going to drive this car to death.
I would highly recommend getting a protune. Dyno, e-tune, doesn't matter - it means a professional has looked over datalogs of your car, and has made an ECU map that is tailored to it.
