We have over 4,700 gas and diesel vehicles in our database.
Q: What is ECU Tuning?
A: ECU Tuning refers to modifying an automobile, motorcycle, boat, or personal water crafts electronic control unit to achieve superior performance, whether it be more power, cleaner emissions, or better fuel economy.
Q: What can I expect?
A: A new driving experience. Expect the vehicle to perform the way you wanted it to, or better, from the factory. A 25% increase in power is not uncommon, pending fuel octane rating and condition of the vehicle. Larger gains can be expected for turbo/diesel vehicles.
Q: What else does this do?
An increase in fuel economy, smoother shift patterns, and increased throttle response. To achieve this, we create a smooth, and linear power band from idle up to redline. Also expect increased low-end torque for off-the-line- acceleration and towing.
Q: Will I pass emissions?
A: Absolutely, all 50 states.
Q: Will I void my factory warranty?
A: No, the software changes are undetectable until you drive the vehicle.
Q: Why is this sold in stages?
A: As the power increases are so dramatic, some levels of performance require additional parts such as an air intake or custom exhaust. The engine will not be able to product the power the ECU was designed to generate if it can not get the air in and the burnt gasses out.
Q: How long does this take?
A: This can take between 2-8 hours to complete pending the complexity of the factory software.
Q: I can buy a “ABC” brand tuner for $500, why should I do this?
A: The over-the-counter “chip” or “tuners” are made for mass distribution and support. They do not modify and perfect the same number of fuel tables as we do.
Q: Why should I go to a Vogue Performance dealer for tuning?
A: VPExhaust has 250 locations in the United States building custom exhausts on a daily basis. Nothing we do is off-the-shelf, and truly unique to each customers specific needs.
