Nope, I know better. Last time I wrote computer code was in about 8th grade when schools still required you to learn how to write computer code in computer class.

But actually I guess I did try and "fix" it via various tricks found on the forums and careful attention to balancing the throttle bodies. Then I realized I was losing about 8mpg, or 20% of my gas mileage. Once I did the math, the re-flash of the ECU didn't seem so expensive. Plus the re-flash is being dome for regular gas instead of premium, I get to run ethanol free and save money. Happy, happy, happy.
