Last week Tapout’s owner, Scott Cook attended the V-Performance Academy in Pahrump, Nevada. This is a two-day performance driving school at Spring Mountain Motor Resort where participants are guided by experienced instructors on one of the most challenging race tracks in America. This gives drivers the ability to test the limit’s of either an ATS-VRead more “Getting Schooled at V-Performance Academy!”
How would you like to have a powerband this broad and flat, with a massive area under the curve? Notice how the torque curve is exceptionally wide, and almost seems to blend into the horsepower line. Yes, you read the chart right. Peak power numbers are 611 whp and 595 wtq on a completely streetable tune. Tapout tunes produce the widest powerbands and the most area under the curve. And we can do this for you too! We want to help to you tap in to the potential of the Cadillac ATS-V so you don't tap out at the track.
Whether you want to generate as much power as our car or just want a faster daily driver, we can help. Even if you already have a tune from someone else we can get you to the next level. Check out our Tuning Services to find package that works for you.
At Tapout Tuning we know not everyone is able to visit our physical location and we want to be accommodating to their busy schedules. That’s why we give just as much attention to our remote tune customers as the customers we tune in person to ensure we are delivering the best customer experience possible.
Tapout Tuning had a great showing at the Orlando Cadillac Attack. Five Tapout tuned ATS-Vs showed up at the event and all five set new personal best times. Tapout did fine tuning all day Friday for the group to help each car perform it's best. The results showed. The finals came down to Tapout versus Tapout in an epic match-up between Jorge and Justin. Congrats guys.

What customers are saying!
I can’t say enough good about Scott and his dedication to helping his customers get the best tune. My case was especially challenging. I bought a used 2016 ATS-V, and after a few efforts at tuning, it became obvious that something was amiss about my car. Turns out that a previous service person hadn’t reconnected… Read more “Long Trip, well rewarded”
I can definitely say that working with Scott has been the best choice that I have made. There are many shops around, that do great things, however I was very skeptical of taking the Caddy to a shop that wasn’t familiar with these cars. As well, I was skeptical of doing a mail order tune.… Read more “Boost Mode Enabled”
Scott went above and beyond when tuning my V. We ran into several issues as he began tuning. He was able to troubleshoot and tell me what was wrong with it. We exchanged over 70 emails and never once did he come off as angry or frustrated. I can tell that he is truly passionate… Read more “Unmatched customer service”
I am extremely overwhelmed with the outstanding customer service and tuning capabilities I have received so far from Scott. I just recently had the pleasure of remote tuning my vehicle for the first time. I’ll be the first one to say that I was skeptical of the process being so far away, but Scott was… Read more “ATS-V MASTERMIND AND EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE”

At first, I planned to drive two hours to Columbus to meet Scott in person, but between the weather and my schedule, I decided that a Remote Tune would be the quickest option since Spring was here and it was time to awaken the beast (M6 sedan). Having zero understanding of tuning a car, I… Read more “Tapout Take(n)Over”
Let me start off by saying I have worked with multiple different tuners throughout my life and Scott is by far the best. It’s not only his top-notch quality tune that completely woke up my V but it’s also his responsiveness. I’m not sure if Scott ever sleeps but he is always there for his… Read more “Scott is the best in the business!”
At first I liked the ATS-V. Then after the Tapout tune I loved it!! They made the process painless and always great service. Will answer questions quickly and tune the car how you want the car. Even helped with diagnosing that the intercooler was dry! I daily drive, autocross, and take the car through the… Read more “All around amazing experience!”
Scott is a real professional with a pinch of friend and a big helping of family. This was my first experience with a remote tune and even more, doing a tune on my own. After the first scan, he discovered my intercooler wasn’t functioning properly. What any other place would have said, “welp, once you… Read more “WOW! Just WOW!”
Scott has been absolutely great to work with. Even before I was a customer, he was quick to answer any and all questions I had. When it came time to load files and log data, he was there providing quick and efficient communication every step of the way. I cannot say enough good things about… Read more “Great Tuner, Phenomenal Service, Fantastic Experience”
Scott has made my first experience with tuning the most inviting and easy experience ever. Everything was new to me, from operating the software to writing the tune to the car. I would only recommend Scott at Tapout Tuning!!
Before going to Tapout, I had a local shop dyno tune my 2016 ATS-V coupe at the same time I installed all of my bolt-ons. I gained power but, it just did not drive the smoothest which was important to me as this car is my daily driver. After I uploaded Scott’s final tune, I… Read more “Best ATS-V Tuner & Easy to Work With”
First off, let me tell you Scott is one cool dude! His service is off the charts. He let’s you take your time to send him scans and perfects the tune until you like the way the car runs. He replies super-fast email or phone which was a big thing for me while tuning the… Read more “Amazing tuner!”
Unbelievable that there was so much untapped performance left from the factory that Scott could extract. My car is now CRAZY fast. I only had a few weeks of decent, but cold, weather after finish with tuning in November. I can’t wait to drive the car in the summer with warmer temperatures, summer tires and… Read more “Amazing! I can’t believe it’s the same car.”
From the beginning you can tell you’re dealing with a perfectionist and someone who knows exactly what he is talking about. I originally got a dyno tune from a big competitor because I was so afraid of remote tuning. Little did I know, the tune that I got was crap compared to what it is… Read more “ALL BOOST NO DOOR TRICKS, Scott is #1 in the ATS-V world!”
I had heard of Scott at Tapout, through the car grapevine, and decided to purchase a tune to wake my car up. Scott made my car an entirely different animal, and the best part is, he continues to be a fountain of knowledge. I feel like I have a teammate who cares about helping my… Read more “Tapout Tune Experience”
What separates Tapout from the other limited number of ATS-V tuning options is not only Scott’s familiarity with this platform, but also the personal customer service that you receive. You deal directly with Scott while tuning, and he works through the tune and tweaks it until not only he is happy, but YOU are happy.… Read more “The Best Tune Choice”
I’ve had many heavily modified cars over the years and most of them got some form of tuning, ranging from OTS maps to professional dyno-tuning, however, I’ve always stayed away from e-tunes in the past. I’ve had my ATS-V for about two years and I’ve been researching my tuning options for the last year. After… Read more “Outstanding Service”
I’ve had my ATS-V for a year and a half. I initially shipped it to a prominent tuner in Ohio, not knowing they were way overpriced, had horrible customer service and the tune was not only poorly done, it was also very dangerous as I came to find out. Another well-known tuner was my second… Read more “Third Time’s a Charm”
Since I was one of Scott’s initial remote tune customers, I felt the need to write a new testimonial after nearly one year of working with him. As Scott has pushed the limits of the platform to discover what is possible, his subscription service has allowed me to take advantage of the things he has… Read more “Love the Calibration Updates”
Got Scott’s help with a Tapout Remote Tune and added the Renick Performance cold air intake this week. Let me say that the car is a monster now. 7,000 rpm rev limiters and lots more turbo noise. Pulls very hard and annihilates my 285 4S tires out back through the gears. Excellent customer service from… Read more “Custom Tune with great results”
I purchased an ATS-V a few months ago and was exploring options to assist with performance mods and respective tuning. After diligent searching, I consistently was coming across Tapout Tuning as a leader in safe and optimized tuning for the ATS-V. A major bonus is that it happened to be basically in my back yard!… Read more “Fantastic Customer Service, Knowledge and Professionalism”
I finally gave in and decided I was going to get my ATS-V tuned. There were a couple well known tuners in town and a couple Remote Tuners I had on the list as options. I’ve been following the forums and Facebook pages for our platform, and only one company really caught my interest –… Read more “Amazing Tuning and Professional Customer Service!”
I was thinking about a tune for my ATS-V and purchased a canned tune from one of the big shops. This tune had decent power and I thought it was all that was available from a remote tune. I read about Tapout Tuning on the forums and was impressed at the positive feedback from their… Read more “Better than the other guys”
I’ve had several tuners and both had some success with my ATS-V, but I wasn’t satisfied with running 10.92 @ 125+. I contacted Scott Cook and made arrangements to do email style tuning with him. Very easy guy to talk to and willing to work with the customer to fix problems. We worked together to… Read more “My Experience with Tapout Tuning”
At first I was hesitant to tune my ATS-V but Scott made the process easy and painless along the way with immediate support and tune revisions throughout the process. I haven’t had the car on the dyno or track yet but I can say without a doubt this car is much, much, MUCH faster than… Read more “Great Custom Tune With Immediate Support Along The Way”
When I first got my ATS-V I was admittedly a little disappointed in its performance coming from a modified CTS-V2. After getting several references I decided to go with Tapout Tuning for a little more power, and I have not been disappointed. The tune is of course EXCELLENT. I’ve taken down some serious competition on… Read more “Seriously Great Tuner”
I only had my ATS-V for three weeks when I felt the need for more performance. Owning a Caddy was something I never thought of before, but I couldn’t resist having this one. It had to be fast however to go along with its sweet looks. I started reading the CadillacOwners forum and found that… Read more “Great Tuner”
I had a popular tune from a well-known tuner. Logged a few dyno pulls and the car was making good power, however it was peaking at 21 pounds of boost and was running lean from what I can tell. I emailed the tuner, with my concerns and they sent me a 2 sentence reply saying… Read more “Best LF4 Tuner in the Business, Period”
When I bought my 2016 ATS-V I had so many questions. Scott was there on day one answering my questions and offering services. He wasn’t pushy, just letting you know what he provides. On to tuning, my car was 100% stock beside AFE intake filters. Running these filters untuned seemed to pick up some decent… Read more “LF4 Whisperer”
I worked with Scott on my 2016 ATS-V 6mt sedan, going through multiple iterations of the tune to nail down the performance with a tune that is specific to the configuration of my car (RP aftermarket parts). Scott was always extremely helpful and patient, taking the time to answer my questions and provide screen shots… Read more “Best ATS-V tuner in the business”
I was a little skeptical going in just from previous experience with remote tunes and canned tunes that have scarred my memory. But the service here was far above anything I have had in the past. From the beginning, Scott Cook was attentive to what I desired out of the tune and sent me the… Read more “Tapout remote tune for the win!”
I was fortunate enough to have won a free tune from Tapout Tuning on a Facebook contest I entered. From day one I have had nothing but great communication with Scott Cook @ Tapout Tuning. He was willing and able to look at my scans and answer my text and emails as need. Never did… Read more “Could Not Be Happier.”
Big shout out to Scott Cook @ Tapout Tuning. He was willing to look at a datalog of my original “custom” ATS-V tune for free. I suspected it wasn’t a good tune but my tuner “couldn’t see anything unusual” in the log and stopped responding to me. Scott pointed out some issues with the tune… Read more “Best Custom Tuning Service I’ve Ever Used”
I wanna thank you for your great and professionally service. You were very very patient and kind, and gave fantastic results after spending many hours on my custom tunes (one for methanol injection and another for Toluene fuel additive). You were always available and very positive. Gave great explanations to help me understand more and… Read more “I wanna thank you”
I decided to take my ATS-V to Scott after reading some bad things that were done from a previous tuner……and it was a decision I didn’t regret. Let me first talk about customer service. You will not find any better than what Scott provides. None. Always responds quickly and provides his knowledge even if it… Read more “Just Do It”
I was recommended to Scott by James Renick and how he was the only tuner he trusts personally. So I thought to myself, If James R. trusts him then I have no doubt in my mind that I would want my car in his hands. From the moment we first made contact with each other,… Read more “Great tuner and great performance!”
I was fortunate enough to run across Scott when I did because I had long suspected the so called pro tune I received from a well known Performance Shop in Cincinnati was not all it was cracked up to be.
