When we started this company we promised to do whatever was required to make ATS-Vs fast. We have already helped to put eleven ATS-Vs into the tens so far, and there will be many more to come. And these aren’t isolated cases with our own personal or in-house cars, and not just with specific sets…
Take the high road, one quarter mile at a time.
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 651 whp and 705 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.
What customers are saying!
I will have to say Scott is awesome. Just any problem, question, concern or anything at all, he was there. This was remote tuning made easy for sure. Also my car now rips, which is huge!! But 12 out of 10 with dealing with Scott and Tapout Tuning!!!
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 can’t thank Scott Cook enough for the great tune and amazing customer service. Always helps, never seems bothered to help you understand anything about the process or the tune itself.

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.
I have a 16 A8 ATS-V with intakes and downpipes, I was definitely expecting a power increase but good lord! Scott worked his magic and the car is a complete animal! 12/10 in every category! Car runs amazing and the powerband is unbelievable! Super nice guy enjoyed working with him and getting everything dialed in!
We just purchased our 2018 ATS-V a few months ago and another V owner recommended Scott to us for tuning.

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.

When I first talked to Scott regarding a Tapout tune I knew he was the one for this platform. He had the knowledge I was looking for. After he sent me my first tune the car was completely different.

I was a bit worried about working with a remote tuner, but Scott has by far exceeded my expectations. Scott’s knowledge, patience and most importantly, his responsiveness are top notch.

Held out on tuning my car for quite a while, and finally gave in.

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!”
Just do it! I am one of the most nit picky people when it comes to my car. Scott ensured that everything was 110% before finalizing the tune.

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.

Recently came out of a modded V2 into a 2016 ATS-V loaded CPO 7,200 miles. As you can imagine, I felt a bit underwhelmed with raw power versus a pullied and E85 V2.

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.

I can tell the difference after the tune. The car is way faster now! Thank you Scott for working on my tune. Also, he replied to every question I had. Thank you again so much.

Scott has… Read more “Are you on the fence about tuning? DO IT!”
Scott has been absolutely amazing. My first dealings with Scott was his helping me diagnose an issue with my car before I was even tuned by Tapout.

I can definitely say that working with Scott has been the best choice that I have made.
