Complicated process with all the sensors and egr, etc. Great power, sound and amazing mpg..but still too early to give too much of a review.
If I recall correctly when VS Motorsports started offering the Evolve tune when I questioned them about dealer DME reflashes that would erase the tune, they stated they would reflash for free.

While the DPF removal peaks my interest I am not excited about the idea of blowing black smoke. There was somone elese that did this and had his car dynoed before an after and he stated he actually lost HP - now that could be due to a couple of things non-DPF related, but point being he saw no gains as a result of the removal. He stated he was going to reinstall the DPF because he didn't like the black smoke.
