NOOOO!!!!!! ARG :( Ok vic, lemme know. Was hoping to have one for when I put my motor back in to help trace anything I may have missed.

The quicker the better, as I have a hard time saving money.

Hehe, well if you want to send the payment to me in advance, you're welcome to... ;)

I'd estimate 2 to 4 weeks before the next batch are ready. It does take a lot of time to put these together.

KK. I might end up spending it on new suspension. Both about the same price.

It all depends on how well the legacy runs when i get it back together.

I was kidding... you shouldn't send me any money until stuff's ready anyway.

FYI N00b...

Um... Vikash is one of, if not the MOST respected bbs user here.

Everybody knows him and you can trust him.

Oh and I have seen one of his scan tools in action. Very cool IMO.

Hey, let's all be nice. ripplesouth's questions aren't unreasonable.

I did get your payment last Tuesday, ripplesouth. I plan on shipping your scan tool tomorrow, using the shipping method we discussed over email. I apologize that it's not on its way already; as I've stated already, I do this in my free time, and lately I have not had much of it.

If you would prefer a refund because of the delay, just let me know before tomorrow and I'll send your money back instead of shipping you the scan tool.

It's cool, I'm sure ripplesouth didn't mean for his post to sound so harsh either.

Nope. It definitely won't work out of the box.

I'm pretty sure I could add support for OBD-1 Imprezas, though, if I could get my hands on some of their ECUs. Ditto for SVXes.

More positive feedback does improve sales figures, and confidence for "Noobs" aka new buyers who don't know anybody in the forum. I have posted only a few times, but I am constantly reading and absorbing as much as I can for my Subaru.

I've met Vikash personally, and I'd trust him with anything I own! One hell of a guy and likely one of the MOST trust worthy people you'll ever have the pleasure of doing business with. Enough said! :mrgreen:

BAC 5.2 & legacy92ej22t can vouch for him also (they have met him in person also), as can LOADS of other LegCen members. You'd be hard pressed to ever find an unkind word said about Vikash or ever a bad business deal either.

I can vouch for Vikash. I was one one of the first three people to get his scan-tool. NO problems what so ever in regards to communication, payment and shipping. He is tops by my books!!

BTW This scan tool is tits!!

P.S Hey Vikash, how can I get the update for non-turbo ecu's

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I don't think we have anything to worry about; ripplesouth just wanted to make sure we were on the same page with respect to how the transaction was going to work. We're not friends (yet) like I am with so many of the rest of you guys.

I intend to get the revision out to you as soon as it's ready. I've been making some changes to the firmware as other purchasers -- especially douglas vincent and beatersubi (thanks guys) -- have been helping me figure out little glitches. When I feel comfortable with it you'll get an email confirming your mailing address and I'll send you the update chip. That goes for everyone who's bought one so far.
