Postby Colonel_Mustard » May 19th, 2015, 12:35 pm

TUNING EVENT
VOLKSWAGEN/AUDI/PORSCHE

The Dub Show is proud to announce that we will be holding a Tuning Event at the show, through COMotorsports.
You can now have your car professionally tuned at The Dub Show.

No need to send away your computer, or suffer through down time with your car. Have your tune installed on-site at the show, while you enjoy the show's offerings. Sign up to have your car tuned at The Dub Show by sending your name, contact info, vehicle info (year, model, engine) along with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Details​
Want better performance and fuel economy out of your vehicle without breaking the bank? ECU flashing might be for you!
Benefit from increased HP, torque, and fuel economy, while refining the ECU mapping for better performance with virtually no down time.
Quick and reliable performance.

APR
http://www.goapr.com
APR offers tunes for just about any VW/Audi/Porsche with no need to remove the ECU from the car. Visit APR's website to see the available tunes. At this tuning event we are able to offer on-the-spot full tunes, or demo/trials. Because of the time that is involved, full tunes will be prioritized over demos.

MALONE TUNING
[url]http://​www.malonetuning.com[/url]
Malone tunes are available for both gasoline and diesel cars, but are best known for their diesel offerings. Malone tunes are also able to be flashed on-site, without removing the ECU, however this only applies to 2006 and older vehicles. As Malone tunes require some additional lead time, be sure to sign up early!

UNITED MOTORSPORTS
http://www.unitedmotorsport.net/performance-software/volkswagen-performance-software/
United Motorsports has filled the gap for naturally aspirated vehciles and have economical offerings for many cars. These can also be flashed on-site and are the perfect option for MKIV 2.0's and MKV/VI 2.5's looking for a little extra kick on the highway. Check out the site to see what tune is best for you. VW and Audi covered.

VCDS
Need some tweaks? Maybe keyfob remote window/sunroof open close, auto unlock doors, rain closing windows, passenger mirror dip in reverse, etc? Some changes can be made at the event, just make a small donation to the show. The amount is up to you!
Spaces limited based on numbers, tunes prioritized.


Thanks for your interest.

To Sign Up:

*Email a.spearns@gmail.com to sign up or to ask specific questions.





FAQ’s:

What is involved, and how long does it take?

Tuning, or remapping a car is a three-step process. First, the installer uses VCDS to scan the car for existing malfunction indicator lights (MIL codes), record engine and transmission coding, and confirm that the car is suitable to be tuned. Second, the tuning company’s proprietary hardware is connected to the vehicle, the appropriate options are selected based on the vehicle configuration, and the tune is flashed to the vehicle ECU. The third step is to reconnect VCDS to clear codes that were caused by the flashing process.

The exact time from start to finish varies by vehicle, but typically ranges from 15 to 45 minutes. There will be two people working at The Dub Show to help move things along more quickly; one person with VCDS and the other installing the tunes.

How can I pay, and how much do they cost?

Each brand has its own product pricing scheme, and website prices must be carefully noted as to which currency they are advertised in. For pricing, please contact Andrew at your convenience. Payment can be made through credit card, cash, or email money transfer at the time of the tune.

Will there be a Dub Show price?

This is being looked into, and while a specific number cannot be announced at this time it is the hope that we will be able to offer a price for the show.

What if there are not enough appointments at the show?

Depending on the number of interested people there may not be enough time in a single day to tune everyone. With the show being on a Sunday, arrangements will be made to provide tuning services on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at a yet-to-be named location.

Is my warranty affected?

Yes and no.

When driving a VW or Audi it is important to be aware of the limitations of the warranty, and how it can be affected by modifications made to the vehicle. Any change to a vehicle is always made under the assumption that the owner accepts the risks of making those changes. A car that has certain hardware or software (tune) modifications can be identified by the VW and Audi through an automated process during a service appointment. When the vehicle is connected to the service equipment, a check is done against the main server in Germany to determine if the car has been software modified. If this check returns a positive, the car is flagged with a TD1. Hardware changes may be noted by the dealer and a manual TD1 flag applied to your vehicle. This may or may not affect your warranty; it depends on the dealer and repair you are looking for. It is unclear at this time if a TD1 is reversible, so it is best to avoid the situation at all costs.

With APR and United Motorsports tuning, this can be avoided by making an appointment with Andrew to return your car to OEM stock tuning prior to a service appointment. Please note that this is not the same as putting the car in stock mode on an ECU that has more than one program loaded on to it; that is still a modified ECU that will be flagged.

If you have your car tuned, and plan on trading it in, a tune will affect the ability for the dealer to apply the Certified Pre-Owned label, which will affect trade-in and resale value. Be sure to book an appointment to have the car returned to OEM stock tuning before this as well.

When looking into modifying your car, it is always recommended to research and ask as many questions as possible to ensure you are informed and comfortable with those modifications and how they may impact your warranty. Overall, returning a vehicle to OEM stock tuning has been a successful way to maintain a vehicle’s warranty while having lots of fun between service appointments!

Is there a warranty on the tune?

This depends on the brand; for example APR offers a 30 day no questions asked money-back guarantee. It is recommended to review the end-user license agreement (EULA) for the company you are thinking about purchasing from.
