Power Steering

So yeah my power steering has gone out 3 times in the past 30 minutes.
I need to bring it to the stealership to get fixed (I think there's a recall on it.) I heard them fixing it involves an ECU reflash. My question is will that erase my ZZP tune?
If so I'm gonna be pis*Ed...

-ZZPerformance 3" catless downpipe
-ZZPerformance tune (21PSI)
-Dejon short ram intake
-Dejon intercooler piping
-Full 3" custom exhaust

there is a recall on it so should be a free fix. as far an ECU reset i would imagine it would need to be reflashed...but i dont really know. i just got my power steering replaced and never thought about that, but i dont have a tune yet so its whatever call and ask i guess?

I just got mine replaced. It nows seems to pull to the right. It took them less then 20 minutes and they did not reflash my car.

I had mine fixed when it went out completely. If they reflashed it, they didn't say anything about it. Mine doesn't pull but now it makes kind of a funny noise when I turn the wheel.

Hey 1BADSS, the reason your car is pulling is because they did not realign the vehicle after they installed it. Take it back and have them do that or you will have bad tire wear problems.

Any questions about the Balt, all answered here:
