anyone know how long it takes when you have to send in your DME for tuning? its been 3+ weeks for me, and ive only received 1 email to tell me that the DME was received. Subsequent email has not been replied to yet. I had to send in mine, due to they requested it that way as its a swap tune. just wondering if anyone else has similar experience

Glad to hear, have any pictures of the car or where the previous owner was located? Would love to see it.

I also made the trip down from Upstate NY for Daves vanos work then TTFS custom dyno tune and was very happy about the experience and outcome. Frank shows his care and determination through his work. I didnt get any crack chicken though!

the only reason Frank blessed us with the crack chicken is because things were running behind schedule so he felt bad and bought us dinner. lol

Just purchased a remote TTFS tune for my M3.

I must say that I was surprised at the improvement. The car pulls much stronger and is smoother overall.

Would recommend without hesitation.

How did you install this remotely? Is it just like a plug and play?
