Default Chip Tuning at the Fest?

Will there be any tuners there and if so who can we plan on seeing?

No chip tuner has committed yet. I suspect that will change as we draw nearer to the fest, and they receive their vendor invitation letters.

Default Chip

I'm interested too. How long does it take to implement the chip? I would think the vendor would set some sort of appointment schedule.

Does this normally take place on Saturday or Sunday? How much "wrenching" can be done in the Hilton parking lot? ...just curious

Different venues have different opinions on wrenching.

There's usually a First-Come-First-Served sign-up list posted for tuning. Different cars take different amounts of time to tune, depending on whether it can be plugged in and flashed or if the ECU needs to be removed and "hot benched".

In the past there's been a sign up sheet for each of the different tuners, so it's a first come, first served procedure.

Prices vary from vendor to vendor, car to car, tune to tune. I've seen prices range from $99-$500 at different events.

Hi,

I don't use tdiclub forums for marketing tool. If you want to pre-sign up for a tuning with 10% discount, go to facebook - look up Rocketchip

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rocket...46257865387449


I will update the list daily. Please specify what day you prefer, sat or sun.

Thanks,
Jeff

Never argue with an idiot.They will just bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
The beatings will continue until the morale improves!
