Last night I picked up my new 2015 XDS turbo and it was 10 degrees when I got home. I have doors and harnesses ready to install but my question is while its so cold should I send off my ecu to be reflashed now or wait and use my maverick and do it later? I'm think I should do it now because its just sitting in the garage while its freezing cold here, and when it finally hits at least 40 I can go out for a spin. I'm trying to avoid down time in the spring but should I break in the motor and belt before the reflash, exhaust, cat delete?

Also is there any tips or tricks on making the DF door install easier/smoother?

Yuba got my turbo re-flashed with only 30 miles on it and now at 1300 trouble free miles.

id do it before...you control how the break in procedure goes....The add on won't change that..

Nothing worse than great weather and waiting on parts...

DF Doors.....Bring your patience "A" game...

I have watched the video that DF made and they look so much easier and better than the Turnkey doors, they were a bitch. Next weekend is supposed to be 50 degrees so I'm in a sticky situation. In Utah if the weather is shitty wait an hour and it will be different.

Drive it a couple times then get the re-flash and you'll appreciate the money well spent a lot more!!!!

10℉ / -12℃ is great weather for riding. Get out there, don't worry as much about belt temperatures and have a blast. At most you'll want a closed face helmet to keep the wind off you while hitting high speeds and a sweater.

I agree on the drive it first. I'd break it in a bit, get use to how it feels then get it done. That way you'll know your gains.

I'm probably going to take it out next weekend and then do the reflash so I know the gains.

And you will notice the gains believe me...it's sorta like your Turbo is on steroids and the fun factor goes up quite a bit...don't know who's re-flash you're getting Yuba

and not really important as from what I know they all make the same power gains...enjoy!!!

I need to get off of this forum, it stresses me out about things that could go wrong. Broken Headers, turbo tubing coming loose, throwing codes, gah!
