    Or you can buy a computer from them, swap out, and send your back for a core.

    Even more of a hassle! The Autocal is the easiest and also if you have more than one vehicle like me, you just pay for the tunes themselves once the hardware is paid for and you can keep multiple tunes for many vehicles on your computer and load them to the Autocal and then to your vehicles. If you ever don’t need the Autocal again you can sell it and recoup most of the money you paid for it.

    Agreed that the auto cal is a no brainer. Just laying out the detail of another option.

    AutoCal is the way to go unless you go DIY.

    LOL @ "chip" scam.

    You can try it, but good luck flipping it to the next sucker when you try to recoup that $65-$210 to put towards a real tune (Blackbear, etc.). Skip the hassle and disappointment and go straight for the good stuff and don't look back.

    Just in case, if anybody has any questions about our tune options feel free to message me, or you can call 877-809-4070, and of course email us [email protected]. We have 3 different tune options (4 counting our in person tune), but what is available to you will always depend on your vehicle's year, model, and engine size. The AutoCal is the most popular option because of the convenience, it allows us to see your vehicle data, and we can provide the tunes via email.

    From what I heard, the Government version of the SSV (I don't know if the feds have PPVs) actually are setup so that they have 10-15% more HP, and at the same time use 10% less fuel. The vehicle needed a federal emissions exception for that though. It is not just some story/rumor, where I live SSVs are used A LOT.

    So if I were you I'd first check at where you're at in that department, and if it even makes sense to "chip" it.
