    You need a VATS disabled memcal or spend the coin and send away the BCM to have VATS disabled.

    I can buy a memcal without vats cheaply. Just wondering if this will definitely work?

    If you say cheap the you might have problems. The decent memcals without VATS are around $180 and are not found on eBay.

    So this is why all the ECU's are torn open and the Memcals are stolen out of every VR/VS and VT that comes in at UPI or should we call it USI ? (you steal it)

    i have i think three spare memcals, one from the donor and my old one when i bought a Mace tune, plus one from the self serve when i bought a new PCM. I didn't think they had any value but they won't be binned anytime soon.

    Oddly it's the very first thing that goes missing when a new car is put out for wrecking at UPI, and what really annoys me is how they are so violently ripped out with the ECU totally destroyed. If you have a look on eBay you'll oddly notice some for sale in here in SA in larger batches. No prizes for guessing where they would've come from eh ?
