As above. When you do an oil change of the trans, do you have to make it relearn? Buying a Cobb AP just to do that is very expensive

GTRTech at the shop can do that for you. If you have a good relationship with your local dealer can possibly do it on the side.

Other benefits to have a Cobb than just a relearn especially if your a CBA/DBA.

Piece of advice don’t cheap out on maintenance - you won’t like the bill when that happens especially if it’s trans related.

Or $250 for an EcuTek bluetooth and can do it yourself from the comfort of your IOS/Android device!

Thank you for the response. The fluid change is done from a reputable tuner shop.

I don’t know anything about ECUtek. Can it also change touch points and capacity settings? Sounds like great value if it can do it all. Also will I run into warranty issues using ecutek?

^ Yes, it can do both.

 

I can't comment on the warranty, but stealerships can generally tell if the car has been tuned.

Yes read and clear codes, change touch/capacity settings, module learning like ABS.  Zero warranty issues if you do not tune it.

That’s great. Thank you for the feedback. Long story short, I don’t trust the dealers to do things right. One dealer has 2 techs that don’t know what can be adjusted (even though the owners manual says adjust before track) and the other dealer’s tech only adjusted One clutch pack and he put the capacity at 7!!!

So apparently a shop said that ECUTEK does leave some codes in the car so if let’s say my transmission fails, Nissan can trace it back to me adjusting the transmission.

Anytime your ECU is flashed or even replaced it’s logged. No way around it. Whether or not Japan in this case voids your power train warranty is a case by case base and data is typically only sent if it’s a major catastrophic failure (engine, trans). Never heard of anyone denied warranty for anything else.

I had MFD, Bellhousing, headlight warranties as a fully built A9.

You don’t need to flash your car to use ecutek maintenance tools. It’s literally acting like dealer’s consult tool. Best $250 you can spend on your GTR, hands down.

Go to a new shop

 

Using the Clutch Learning and Touchpoint tools is the same as a consult tool, just like going to the dealer.  So if going to the dealer voids your warranty then you have a more serious problem.

I read somewhere that you have to buy the software separately with the $250 usd Bluetooth dongle. Is that right?

All you need is a bluetooth and an iOS or Android device.  If you want to flash/tune the car then you need a software dongle.  But if you just want the diagnostic features then bluetooth and a phone/tablet.
