No chips. They are a ripoff. Get a PCM tune instead. Overkill motorsports.

Hi
if I buy the HP Tuners VCM Suite Pro will I be able to use it for the same thing as if I would send it to tune or these are two different things?

thank you

You can tune your car with the HP tuners suite but it helps if you know what you are doing or you can mess up and screw up the factory tune and screw up performance and drivability. If you get good with the software though you can make money tuning others cars and you will learn about the inner working of your car. Also this is not cheap either about $500 and up depends on your options.
