Sick, I'll be sure to check it out.If by "tuner" you mean hardware you mount in the vehicle to control the engine (like you would on a Cummins) it works a bit differently on a TDI.
Instead, you work with a company (the "tuner") that takes your stock firmware and upgrades it based on your equipment and performance requirements. You buy or rent a loader that connects to the OBD2 port which lets you download your stock file and then upload the file the tuner sends you.
Mike Malone is one such tuner and his company is based out of Vancouver: malonetuning.com
(not affiliated BTW... just a repeat happy customer)
Since its in USD do I have to pay shipping fees to ship to the US?With Malone, you can either buy from them the hardware that connects to your OBD port to re-program your ECU ("load your tune"), or simply rent it from them.
As in, you pay the full cost for it; they ship it to you; you get your tune done, do some logging and testing - send them your results; if necessary, they tweak things and send you revision for you to try; repeat until you're satisfied; then ship them the tuning hardware back.
They refund you cost of the tuning box minus a token "rental" fee.
Have you checked out this shop. It's in Guelph and is listed on Malone's website as a dealer. Maybe they can help you so it's not as expensive i.e. no rental fee. Probably a tuner or shop fee.Since its in USD do I have to pay shipping fees to ship to the US?
