Having zero understanding of tuning a car, I… Read more “Tapout Take(n)Over”
I got in touch with Scott at Tapout Tuning after a having a previous tune in the car that I wasn’t satisfied with. Scott explained in detail to me the performance packages that they offered.

The service was incredible and my car runs really fast in Mexico. LOL The best thing that has happened to my… Read more “Drives Like A Real V”
Scott put a fantastic tune on my ATS-V. Throttle response is a lot smoother and it now pulls hard even from the low end. While adding power, the tune actually made the car a lot better to drive everyday due to the smooth power band. While stock it was a lot of fun, and it… Read more “Great Tune Fantastic Service”
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’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”
Tapout and Exodus did an amazing job on my car. They are easy people to work with and communicate. They fixed some problems I had with my car as well as brought it back to life. The car felt completely different in a good way. The car I own now is a beast! Read more “Outstanding work”
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”
This was a great experience. Scott was always responsive with email and information. I had issues during the process and Scott was able to give suggestions and help with solutions. I would recommend Tapout to anyone! I was worried initially but Scott was so easy to work with it was comforting.
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.”
Scott is amazing. Maybe one of the best customer service I’ve encountered. With rapid fast replies via email or messenger. Went from 10 lbs. of boost to 19 just off his tune. Glad I made the right choice to go with Tapout FW!
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!”
I have waited a bit to write my review to ensure the newness and general excitement weren’t overdriving my response. That said, my amazing experience with Scott and Tapout started with my call to sales, Michael specifically. Great conversation with a knowledgeable individual who walked me through the proper selection of and implementation of my… Read more “Support and Communication Better than Touted”
I dealt with many tuners before Tapout and non of them was as fast and knowledgeable as Scott. Also, he never disappointed me with my requests. Definitely Tapout team is the best.
First off hands down & hats out to Tapout & their outstanding customer service. I mean if texting, emailing & even calling to walking you through the tuning steps, while taking your daughter to swimming lessons if I’m not mistaken, doesn’t speak customer service, then I don’t know what does. Just Scott’s patients level alone… Read more “Forget The Rest & Go With The Best !!!!”
If you’re having any doubts or worries about maybe going with a different tuner DON’T. Scott helped me and gave me so much information long before I decided I was going to use his services. Once I pulled the trigger to have Scott tune my car my only regret afterwards was not having him tune… Read more “Absolutely Amazing!!!”
I am the first French customer. Scott explained to me very well how the HP Tuners works. He is very responsive to emails. This is my first remote tune. I gained three seconds at 60 to 130 mph just with downpipes and tune on 93 octane fuel. I am 200% satisfied. I discover a new… Read more “French Customer”
I recently bought downpipes, throttle body, wideband sensors, spark plugs, intercooler fill/bleed kit, BOOSTane, HP Tuners with Pro Link and a remote tune from Tapout. Scott had zero problems answering my questions and pointing me in the right direction from the start. Once he had my money this didn’t change unlike some other vendors I… Read more “Get a Tapout Tune You Won’t Regret It!”
I wanted to send a special shout out to my man Scott Cook. He tuned my ATS-V back in August and it totally woke the car up. Also, previous to the tune he took the time to read the data logs and saw we had intercooler issues. Well, that was fixed and after installing the tune… Read more “Totally Woke The Car Up”
Scott is very easy to work with and makes sure the whole process of getting your car dialed in is perfect. Super fast response times! I was amazed when I was able to get two files sent by him in a single day. I have seen other tuners that takes weeks. Plus, he is always… Read more “Tapout Is The Best”
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”
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”
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!!
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 contacted Scott after doing a lot of research between the ATS-V tuners. I purchased the Remote Tune Plus which came with HP Tuners. The HP Tuners arrived very quick and we were off. I followed Scott’s detailed instructions and sent him my stock scans. With a very quick turnaround he sent me a custom… Read more “The ATS-V Is ALIVE!”
Scott and the crew know exactly what they’re doing with this platform! It’s amazing that basic bolt ons with a tune can make such high power numbers reliably. Plus the crew at Tapout are really easy to get a hold of.
Having owned my 2017 ATS-V Sedan for a couple of years, I had been hearing great things about Scott and is customer service for a while. I reached out to him with high expectations, based on that reputation, and he still managed to exceed them. When I purchased my tune and spark plugs, Scott was… Read more “Incredible Customer Service”
Huge shoutout to Scott for all the help and tuning he’s done. Purchased the car not long ago and just felt sluggish stock. With the help of the Scott, he changed the car entirely. Feels great now with the tune on. He answered all my questions which was perfect!
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.
I contacted Scott at Tapout Tuning because others w/ similar tuning issues spoke very… Read more “Great Improvement In My ATS-V’s Performance”
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”
I purchased a tune from Scott back in 2018. Back then I was amazed at the power increase over stock. Since then I have graduated to the ever popular purple belt package. Without a doubt the best automotive experience, from ordering the parts and shipping the same day to the awesome team and people willing… Read more “Tapout Tune Follow Up”
Scott is the one and only person I would ever let touch my car. He is very knowledgeable and his customer service is by far the best I have ever had. He always replies very quickly no matter what day or time. To take a car from 464hp to ~600hp and keep drivability equal to… Read more “The One And Only Person To Trust With Your Car”
Service is actually exceptional, and help was delivered damn near around the clock, literally. I definitely have more mods to work with but for just a tune and down pipes i just can’t believe how fast this animal is. Thanks Scott!
Go with Tapout Tuning for your parts and especially tuning. Best customer service, best parts, and best tuning, period. I have been tuned by Tapout for about three years now. Never one issue. With Scott’s help in tuning I was able to be the first ATS-V to run 10s tune only. And first to lift… Read more “Could Not Be Happier”
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”
This is my first experience in remote tune with Tapout Tuning and the car feels so lively and strong to drive! Scott was very helpful and replied to every single question that I asked.

I would like to preface my review with a general statement. With the ongoing pandemic lasting beyond expectations (at least my own), the mass of people have been forced to become online consumers. As such, I’m sure we have all to some extent experienced the inconvenience of having to call customer service, IT assistance, etc.… Read more “Incredible Customer Service During Pandemic!”
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 didn’t have any prior experience with remote tuning and was not very comfortable at first, but Scott was extremely patient and helpful!! Just recently installed Tapout Throttle Body and Downpipes and have been very impressed with the quality! I would highly recommend Scott for any of your tuning and performance parts needs!
The ATS-V in stock form is one hell of a car. But, Scott working his magic, makes this car a completely different animal. Scott assisted with my intercooler issues (highly recommend the bleeder kit), and of course explaining the preparation to increase the boost (spark plugs, intercooler health, etc.). He is very professional and educated… Read more “2017 ATS-V Tune Only”
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”
Can’t say enough about Scott and the Tapout team. Quick shipping on the product I ordered (HP Tuners) and exceptional service on the remote tune and revisions. Never more than a couple hours after emailing a scan and a response was received. Top notch, and will definitely stick with Tapout for future modifications. Thanks again… Read more “Exceptional Service and Support”
Held out on tuning my car for quite a while, and finally gave in. Being limited to 91 octane gas in California I wasn’t expecting huge power gains, but was very pleasantly surprised at just how much more Scott was able to get out of the car even on 91 octane… it’s a huge difference… Read more “The Tune Is Great, Dealing With Scott Is Even Better!”
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”
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”
From having issues dealing with a local tuner on a previous car I had in the past I was kinda skeptical of tuning again and especially a email tune. Having talked to Scott briefly over messenger I quickly realized he actually cares and took time to explain things to me unlike my past tuner so… Read more “Best In The Business”
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”
Amazing tune and EVEN BETTER CUSTOMER SUPPORT! I’ve had several cars tuned and Scott replied to every question and log extremely quick. My past experiences have been a couple replies a day, if I’m lucky. One time it took two days just to get the first couple logs swapped between emails with a remote tune… Read more “Great Tune & Support!!”
Scott is easily one of the best, if not the best tuner I’ve came in contact with. Replies quick, and his knowledge and work ethic are unthought of. Earned my business!
I would like to publicly thank Scott and Tapout Tuning for all their help and vast knowledge while putting together (what may be basic to them ) the White Belt package for my ATS-V coupe. Quick turn around getting an online order to my door delivery, responses from tune uploads and emails are impressive. Patient… Read more “Top notch professionals”
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!”
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 almost went with another tuner before deciding on Scott at Tapout. I talked to a guy that I was considering buying his car instead of modifying mine. He said don’t let anyone tune your car except Scott because he had several guys tune his and Scott was the only one he would trust again.… Read more “Only One Tuner For ATS-V’s”
After buying a CPO car with 45,000 miles I wanted to know that all systems were working properly with no issues. With some research I knew I wanted to go with Tapout Tuning where Scott has analyzed more logs than anyone else on the LF4 platform. Next I wanted to make sure I could compete… Read more “Exceeded Expectations; Outstanding Customer Service”
I have owned four cars that I have altered the performance on. Most recently was a built WRX, that went through four tuners, where each one did certain things well. Now that I have the V.

After losing faith in the quality of work performed by my dealer’s performance shop, I started to question the safety characteristics of my dyno tune. Knowing several friends that had their ATS-V’s tuned by Tapout, I reached out Scott with my concerns. Before purchasing a remote tune, Scott asked me to send him a copy… Read more “New Faith Found”
