Program upgrade?

Picked up the car from my friendly not local dealer the other day(another story) . Felt like i was driving a different beast. This had torque off idle and heaps less driveline shunting.
Calling to thank them and was told they just tightened things up under the car and reflashed the ECU.

Anyone had any similar experience?

Re: Program upgrade?

Yep.. my XR8 was a bit doughy and had the rough running when started problem so when I took it for a service I mentioned the idle ( not the power ! ) and when I drove off all I noticed was the clean running. Then I took off hard and whent straight to the limiter and even though it was still a tad soft down low ( as Boss motors are ) it had heaps more mid range pull. Then I added the CAI and it's now a very nice package.
