    It seems to me that this should be a issue with any other HEMI conversion that another company would do.

    After rereading response #13 I think that was what you were saying. It's an issue with any HEMI conversion.

    It is still relevant to older HEMI conversions. We use a custom calibration with our HEMI conversions to allow everything to work as it should. Having your PCM or WCM re-flashed by anyone can wipe out our calibration.

    As an extra precaution, we have since added a warning plug on the ODBII port to stop anyone from re-flashing the pcm without first contacting our technical department.

    Honestly Ben, I am probably not the best person to ask in regard to that issue. I would run that one past Eric in our Tech Department - (248) 926-0256 x221. I wish I could answer that for you, but I don't want to give you the wrong information.
    Thank you Matt, I'll buzz Eric today.

    You're very welcome! You can view our complete AEV Certified Dealership network on our website here: http://www.aev-conversions.com/deale...le-dealerships

    Our conversions are designed to be serviceable by any Jeep dealership, but there are just a few things that they need to know prior to doing so. As a safety precaution we always encourage the service department to contact our Tech Department prior to hooking up any equipment.

    Thanks, Ben

    Just as a precaution, if you have a JK with an AEV HEMI conversion and need to take it to a non-AEV Certified Dealership for service, it is a good idea to have the dealership contact the AEV Tech Dept at 248-926-0256 x2 before doing anything.

    At this time, consider it all HEMI’s. The issue here is voluntary updates, if there is nothing wrong with your WCM, do not reflash it without contacting AEV first.
