What if I am not satisfied with my tune after driving?
VLMspec works diligently to optimize every vehicle we calibrate. We offer unlimited revisions on a given hardware set. Often times a vehicle exhibiting issues will have a hardware malfunction. We will assist you with diagnosing these issues. For over a decade we have never had a vehicle we could not calibrate properly, even when working around major hardware issues.
