Seems unlikely anyone has really tried both to be able to give you an objective opinion...

That said, why not go with Velocity AP, many on here have tried it with good results, Stuart is a great guy and provides awesome service, and VAP has proven results, competitive pricing. Doesn't seem like too hard a decision.

I used VAP. They are great. They will answer any question you ask promptly - during the weekend and even at night.

Go with someone who has worked with Jaguar and employs former Jaguar factory techs. And preferably British...for this reason.
When Pedro makes sushi for happy hour at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I know he is the best. But every little itch or rash the next day has me wondering if Pedro made an assumption.

Has anyone on this forum ever taken on an STP tune?

Who is STP even? I feel like that alone should answer the question.

Check out the web page. Not much hard info about the tunes that I could find. Only a video posted on this thread.

LOL. A V6 with a 0-60MPH of 3.1sec has many with their panties in a bunch. There are over 300 F-Type running STP Supplied tunes and some actually went much further. This of course is VAP's turf so the ones that simply go for bolt ons and popularity will praise what they have... and I did just the same. Yes I am indeed biased, because I am the owner and no it's not for everyone.

You list a customized air intake in your signature. Can you tell us more about that & possibly post photos. I was on your website & saw no mention of it.

You already have the EVenturi and there is no point in posting pics of mine to have it copied since it's not for sale and requires quite a bit of effort and changes to the front intake vents (making them real vents for RAM air effect). I am sure Unhinged and Stohlen will come up with their version shortly

I'd like to see the timing slips...

You have the video... time it ;-) Or better yet, let's meet up at the track for a friendly wager ;-)

Why not? Well...
1. The video does not show speed, so finding 60 mph would be hard. Is there even a launch and run to 60 in the video?
2. I'm 2,000 miles from your track in Connecticut. That's a little inconvenient.


On the other hand, You made a claim. You must have the timing slip if you know the 0-60 time. So, why not just post it and silence all your doubters? Wouldn't that be best for your company?

Just one more question - the 0-60 time you quote is for the car in your signature - 22 psi and methanol injection and so on, not the result of a simple tune, isn't it?
