For those of you who don't know, a 2.5 - 3db increase represents twice the sound energy. So like you have one violin or speaker playing and another starts playing at the same loudness.

probably a sticking piston in the caliper

But shouldn't really happen on a car this new because it is usually due to corrosion in the piston.

I know nothing about flashes, but does it have to be reflashed after losing battery power for X amount of time?

Sounds like the mixture is way off, like the CEU is giving way too little fuel.

Something either came apart or is out of adjustment-- it is just not selecting the 1-2 gate.
