Why are you sending it to AU to get programmed? Have a local tuner who knows what he's doing work on it. Or do you mean something different by "program"?

http://www.microtechefi.com/pdf/repair.pdf

This form doesn't say the repair is $200au, it says that's what to put on the custom form. That number is probably some magic cut off number that prevents delays and additional taxes

The only problem I ever had was with this place http://www.microtech-efi.com/ which is NOT the manufacturer, although it looked that way when I sent an ECU for repair. Make sure to use the website that does NOT have the "-" in it.

doesnt matter who you use, it goes to Microtech the manufacturer and they are **** house!]Micrtoech service jsut about doesnt exist.
this is why you buy a decent ecu. You get better ecu and after sales service.
