Default Goodbye LC-1 Hello UEGO

Well, i melted the controller for my lc-1 like a dumbass and decided to go aem this time. I had problems with the lc-1 maybe im just not smart enough for such a sophisticated piece of equipment. Therefore, i went down to advance auto and picked up an AEM Uego for about $285. Expensive mistake.... Anyway, hopefully i will be happier with this than with the lc-1.

Replace it with an AEM sticker or you'll lose at least 5 hp.

OH christ I didn't know that. No wonder when you call AEM for tech support it takes forever.

I'm glad to hear that they've stepped up from carrying just Ractive ****.

(There was a much better deal going on these in this very forum, though)
