I hade the Vectro tune done and I have since driven over 2000 miles. I have not had 1 problem. I wanted something changed to my liking and they took care of it for me without hesitating. They are a couple of great guys who I believe really know what they are doing.
Just incase anyone has any worries, I dont think there is anything to woory about. They stand behind their work 100% and will do whatever it takes to make the customer happy. I am a local customer and have dealt with them both first hand a few times and they are excellent to deal with.

i was just wondering...if the check engine light came on, will it go off if the problem corrects itself? or does it have to be reset by a dealer? or ecm scanner?

The code will not go away when the problem goes away, it needs to be erased.
This can be done with a scan tool or by removing the negative battery cable for 30 seconds.
I believe TBSSTony's problem has been that he needs a crank variation learn this entire time.
I have been running 91 octane fuel with 10% alcohol in my truck (with the 93 tune) for 5 days now with no problems.
I believe that when OnStar read the code, the description they gave him was a generic statment. They did not give him a code number.
There have been NO issues with knock in ANY of the TBSS performance tunes we have done.

Well this just isn't as easy as anyone says it will be. The GMC dealer across the street said it will be $50 to reprogram the entire system. 1- I'm not paying $50 and 2- They're not reprogramming everything. Oh, and they can't do it until tomorrow (there were 0 cars in the service bays). He also gave me a very curious look when I said it was a 2006 but it was not a warranty issue.

Today is the 7th day to get the cores back, so I'm thinking I'll just put my stock ones back in and get a refund. Too much hassle, too many problems. Hopefully the rest of you guys have much better luck than me.

That won't do any good if I don't get the CV relearn done.
