i'll second that, depends too though if they have done this tune already on another vy auto gen3 with same or simmilar exhaust set up as they may just upload it to your computer using a tunning tool such as efi live or pcm suit, i know efi live you can do this, hence mail order tunes, except you go in and they upload it, so possibly ok, but get it checked on a dyno and get a dyno read out so you know its ok as well.

oops just re read you first post, yeh get a dyno read out and they may have done this tune before and upload it and do a touch up to suit your car to make it quicker and easier to tune, or they'll do from scratch but good price.

can i request to keep to old exhaust and extractors or would that be why the quote is so cheap as they then sell it as a second hand???
