Ok. I'll probably go with Velos then. Some guys are selling a used one online for a good price. But, it says that Velos needs to reprogram it for my specific VIN. How much would that cost?

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

It would be about $180-$220 euros roughly.

After reading this thread, I called and purchased a refurbished unit with 2+. Installed the catless downpipes and flashed the tune. Everything works great and I'm really glad I didn't get an exhaust system. Trucks way louder "in a good way" but the exhaust might have been a bit too much.

Nah, would t be too much... haha. Your neighbors just will hate you. Glad you went with the Velos and glad you're happy with it. I'm in the same boat as you.

I would be interested in doing this as well. However, I have no idea where to start. The new Velos is steep. Where did you find a used one? Then the next problem is the flashing, etc etc.

Anyone have experience with VF engineerings tune? It's well priced, and DDE on youtube is sponsored by them, which I like to support.

I would wait or contact them to see if they have some refurbished ones... they are significantly discounted and quite affordable.

Just curious if anyone who has had the Velos tune been able to get their vehicle emissions checked? Got the upgrade about a month ago, no CEL or issues -- running great. But pull into Emissions and they can't run the test because the computer says it's not ready. Just wondering if everyone else had to downgrade to stock tune in order to have the OBD emissions test function.
