    Warning Unreliability Allegations Regarding AEM ECUs

    Following complaints from Dan Turner on behalf of Advanced Engine Management Inc (AEM), and in light of legal action being threatened against the club, I am hereby requesting that no posts or threads are made on this forum regarding the possible unreliability of AEM ECUs that could be perceived as libellous, inflammatory, or potentially reputation damaging, unless you have documented evidence to back up your claims. Of course opinions are allowed as long as they are clearly idenfitied as being in your opinion, as are truthful, first-party experiences, but hearsay will be removed.

    Oh FFS, *I* (that's me, not the club) grow weary of these half-arsed companies that hide behind legal action instead of addressing the problems being highlighted.

    For the record I recently sold my eManage Ultimate with a view to moving to AEM, in light of this and other feedback received I will no longer be doing so.

    I don't believe this is a reflection on a supplier. I believe this is a result of someone who has an affiliation with a supplier who has spun a story to a supplier who is now using the grunt of the said supplier to attempt to cover his own issues.

    Disclaimer : I have not mentioned any supplier or persons, and none should be assumed.

    I personally would ask for a statement DIRECTLY from Advanced Engine Management Inc (AEM), as opposed to someone who is a supplier and not in the employment of AEM.

    Now, that is a comment to make, because strictly speaking that could indeed be true.

    Looks like Dan Turner is taking a leaf out of a "certain ex-trader"'s (can't think who that could be!) book on - legal action!

    Personally, I reckon if Dan is threatening you mods by going legal - ban him from trading on the BBS.
    Agent Smith & WD40 are pretty much the same ....

    One evasively bodyswerves & the other is greasy as hell.

    Weren't a lot of the comments made by professional mappers?

    Looks like one comment was made about Mr. Turner that he obviously took offence too.

    Absolutely, please ban Mr Turnip, threats against the club should result in immediate dismissal IMO.

    If they are not willing to address the issue in a professional maner then they dont belong here.

    This thread was the personal opinion of Daston.
