Lancaster, AZ Ferrari F355
I just took my 355 out for another run. The changes that
your ECU tuning made to my car this week exceeded my
expectations. The car now idles with authority and a
steadiness. Before at idle, the engine would
kind of meander around and stumble slightly. The
dealership told me that was typical of all 355's.
Also the power comes on under acceleration like RIGHT NOW.
I mean NOW. There is none of that mid-range delay in
power that made me feel like I was driving an old
1980's 911 Turbo. Also under acceleration the power
delivery now is so smooth and constant and
almost turbine like. I loved my car before but now
I'm really nuts about it. I am usually very skeptical
about testimonials. But I am so impressed with your
ECU tuning that I want others to know. So you can share
this letter and my name with potential Veloce
Performance customers. Thanks again Dino.

SF, CA '08 SL600
Dino, My '08 SL600 is now awesome! I am very
impressed and pleased with the results from your ECU/TCU
tuning. I can barely get traction in 2nd gear when
doing WOT! I've been cruising the streets of San
Fran looking for "victims". Ha-ha.
Also, the enhanced TCU makes for lightening fast shifting,
and per your recommendation, installed the K&N air
filters for better breathing. Since I live in San
Fransisco, your Veloce Performance partner, MB Garage,
located in the Bay Area (San Mateo, CA) was convenient at
about a half hour's drive from SF. The proprietor,
Janet Migliore, was quite knowledgeable in MB mainenance,
and installing and checking the ECU/TCU. She was
able to answer all my questions on both your products and
MB servicing. Thank you again for your awesome
Veloce products and helpful advice. I plan to return
for future tuning needs as I will be in the market for
other fast cars! Marvin W., SF, CA

Chris DeFelice, NY, BMW Z4M
Veloce performance did
a great job in enhancing the performance of my Z4M coupe.
I really felt a nice gain in power when reaching above
the 4000 rpm range. After having my car on the dyno with
other minor modifications I was able to get 305
horsepower at the wheels,
which I was very impressed with. Love the car and
the tune but most importantly the guys over at Veloce
are really great people.
It is always better to deal with other fellow car
enthusiasts who make no sacrifices when it comes to the
things they really have a passion for. I highly
recommend this shop to others who look to get the full
potential out of their car as well as enjoy staying in
front of the pack!. Keep up the good work guys!
Rajan, Pelham Manor, NY, E55 AMG
I put in the upgraded ECU
and new K&N filters into my 2006 E55 AMG yesterday and
today took my car out for a long ride. Wow!
What a difference. From
the get go the car feels much quicker, far more
responsive and with much more punch. This car
feels like a different, more powerful animal!
The acceleration is instantaneous. Much more so than
before. The car is quicker to downshift and holds
onto higher RPMs for greater performance. The torque
feels stronger and comes on sooner and stays on longer.
Driving in 5th gear now feels like the 4th gear used to
before the ECU upgrade.
I had considered other providers of ECU upgrades but
decided on Veloce Performance because of what I read
about the products and about Dino - the owner. Dino
personally walked me through the entire process and
helped me with the ECU extraction from my car. He has
been phenomenally helpful, always available and
extremely responsive to my many queries. He has
demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and
customer service that I have ever received in matters to
do with my car. And I am
very picky when it comes to whom I trust my car to. I
would wholeheartedly recommend Dino to anyone and would
be happy to even speak to anyone considering an ECU
upgrade. You can get my contact information from Dino if
you would like to speak with me.
Sam Camouse, OH, E46 M3
I'm very happy with
the ECU upgrade you performed for me,
power is more consistent throughout the entire powerband,
the car just pull harder through all the gears
and not having the very
annoying rev limiter has greatly improved my 1/4 mile
time. In fact it has helped so much that I was
able to shave more than .5 seconds off my best 1/4 mile
time prior to having the procedure done.
All an all Im glad I had you retune my ECU and it was
well worth the money. Thanks -Sam Camouse

I will definitely use Veloce Performance to achieve
better performance on my future cars.
Dan G., Pittsburgh, PA, CL55 AMG
I had CL 55 Veloce ECU & K & N filters installed today.
Thanks for the quick turn around as promised. I HAD to
let you know after 50 miles or so with my new Veloce
ECU; the difference is VERY noticeable. At
partial throttle, the car is smoother, off the line, and
''tip in'' throttle is also noticeably more linear and
smoother as well. Only a
few chances for WOT (Pittsburgh is not Phoenix); AMAZING
and grin inducing.
for the fast, attentive & quality service.
Please feel free to have anyone contact me if
contemplating your ECU vs the ''big boys''. Besides, I
love supporting an entrepeneur. My Veloce tuned CL 55
Love it and will be calling you for more, I'm sure.

Kevin S., Detroit, MI, SMART Cabrio
I've had the Veloce tuned
ECU in my 2008 Smart car for a couple of months. I am
very pleased with the results. Power and response are
improved across the entire band. Shifts are more crisp
in manual, and automatic modes.
Though the 1st - 2nd
shift pause is not erased, it is significantly reduced.
The car also holds gears longer in automatic mode, both
on and off the gas. I added the ECU to an exhaust and
cold air upgrade. The ECU had the most noted effect. It
changed the driving dynamic of the car.

William Reynolds, Lamborghini Gallardo, Los Angeles, CA
I didn't think that there
was much room left for improvement in my Gallardo.
After speaking with Dino and looking at the testimonials
for Veloce Performance, I knew that if anyone could make
a difference, they could. Boy, was I pleasantly
surprised! There is a significant gain in power and
torque throughout the power band, and even more punch in
the mid range. The throttle response is almost
telepathic now. My Gallardo was brilliant before,
it is a world beater now! Dino and Veloce
Performance answered all my questions and handled my car
with the utmost care, and the results have made me a
believer. I can't imagine not having Veloce
Performance tuning on any of my cars. Thanks Dino.
Imre, MB SL600, Tucson, AZ
My 04 SL600 was fun and
had lots of power but after a bit you get use to all
that power and want more. After looking around at all
the "soup up" options,
I picked Veloce performance. Dino
understands how torque is really what moves a street car
around. How often during street driving are you at 6000
RPM, even on the track you just shift there. Your
engine's torque at 2000-5000 RPM is what blows the doors
off your various casualties. After Dino's tune,
The term Oh Crap! Hang ON comes to mind.
Unbelievable acceleration that just doesn't let up.
pulls so hard past 120, 130, 140+MPH. The TCU upgrade
helps the transmission handle all this torque and the
shifts are AMG quick and still silky smooth.
throttle response is so impressive too, The car reacts
so quickly to commands now, the turbo delay is all but gone. AND a great by product- my mileage actually
increased - was 25.5 driving back after the tune at 65
MPH in traffic.The turbos are working the way they
should and increasing engine efficiency. Hey Dino! Our
E320 CDI is next! 50HP and 4 MPG improvement, I think I
can sell that to the Mrs! You are a tuning GOD!
All my best
Frank Bataglia, SL65 AMG,, CA
My SL65 is a great car,
but I wanted MORE,
and Dino and the software gurus at Veloce Performance
answered the call... in sspades! The car's
new found power is amazing.
But more than that, their customer service was
some of the best that I have found anywhere.
They made the process so
easy and have been there from start to finish.

Mark Larsen, Tucson, AZ E92 M3
Thanks for the support in
regards to reprogramming my E92 M3. I researched many
different programs and felt the most comfortable with
Dino and Veloce. The new
BMW M3 is an amazing car and the high revving V8 is a
beautifully designed piece of machinery however I always
felt it could do a little more. Dino dialed it in
to give me the best torque response at the lower RPM
level. This is exactly
what the car needed to give me 100% on the track.
dyno net increase on this car was 34hp @ the wheels on
91 octane pump gas!
H. Bluthi, SL55 AMG, Geenville, SC
The car is really running good thanks to Veloce
Performance. I can really tell the difference.

Charles Pearson, US Army Ranger, GA USA, SL55 AMG
Dino & John,
I can not thank the both of you enough for the awesome
tune that you both have blessed me with.
My SL55 AMG is
truly a beast to be reckoned with on the interstate and
I can honestly say that I am always smiling while out on
the prowl for easy prey. Your company has once again
made a proud AMG fanatic one satisfied customer. I
really appreciate the professionalism and dedication of
your staff and all of the hard work that they have
sacrificed into making my baby a true contender. The
pulley upgrade along with the ECU and TCU tune has kept
my competition in AWE for a long extended period of
time. Thanks a Million and God Speed in ur future
endeavors. Rangers Lead The Way! Charles., U.S.
Logan Johnson, SMART, CA USA
Just got my ECU back from
Dino. The difference in the car really is amazing.
Acceleration and shifting has been dramatically
improved... it seems like a completely different car.
There is also a big increase in torque. I'm VERY happy I
took a leap of faith and got this done. I don't need
numbers and charts, just REAL WORLD performance
that's what I got. Many thanks to the Veloce Performance
crew and Andy for his review on this. I recommend anyone
who wants to do this, to do it! Logan Johnson, CA
Pat S., Bakersfield, CA & VP CEO, Dino with Pat's SL600
I just had my 04 sl 600 ecu tuned on Sunday by Dino and
when it's cool the car runs really strong but when it's
real warm/ hot it's down on power I think my ic pump may
be bad, taking it to the dealer on monday to find out.
Anyhow I've called Dino every day since then sometimes
twice in the same day with questions and he either
answers the phone or calls me back within 5 mintues and
has even faxed instructions on how to replace the ic
pump! NOW that's what I call great customer
Give him a call I'm sure you'll be glad you did!

Mike M., Tempe, AZ, CLS55 AMG
I recently had a Veloce
Performance tune done on my CLS55 and I'm very
impressed with the results. The car pulls much harder
now and has better
throttle response overall. Dino is a pleasure to work
with and is extremely
knowledgeable. He answered all my questions quickly and
handled the whole
process very professionally.
Thanks Dino for a job well

Khalifa Al Romaithi, UAE, BMW M5
The car is really, really
fast! You can really feel a big difference from
before the Veloce Performance tuning. I can feel
the power in all the gears, especially in 5th & 6th
gear. There is so much more torque that it revs so
quickly now. Even with the extreme hot weather in
my country (36-40C), the car runs fantastically.
I'm sure it will be even better when it cools off.
I really appreciate your help. Khalifa
Mike Cohen MD, MBA, Sacramento, CA SL600
I Recently enjoyed a Veloce
Performance ECU upgrade on my 2004 SL600 "Rocket".
Every detail was handled efficiently and professionally.
Dino and his staff answered email and telephone
questions promptly and honestly.
The technician quickly performed the ECU flash at my
house (for a nominal fee), saving me from having to
remove/mail the ECU.
Performance is improved throughout : off the line,
mid-range and top end.
I recently enjoyed a 202 MPH top speed run and the
engine was still pulling before I "chickened out".
Low speed drivability and fuel economy remain excellent.
Am looking forward to TCU upgrade.
I cannot imagine driving any car without VP tuning ever
ECU tuned my 2004 SL600 V12 Biturbo several years ago.
It still amazes me with the
remarkable wave of power when I "wake up the turbos",
yet is docile around town so my wife can easily drive
it. My local MBZ dealer installed the AMG TCU
speedshift when the transmission and motor mounts were
replaced under warranty. I recently had new brakes,
rotors, front bushings and Michelin pilot supersports put
on. SL600 still feels like the best hardtop
convertible on the planet, although a F458 spider may be
tempting in the future, assuming there is enough low end
torque. Thanks again for your help, and I'm still
considering a 2007-08 Bentley GTC with VP ECU tune
after the kids graduate college in a few years..
K. Willis, Anthem, AZ
I was skeptical at first, but after driving the car, the
difference is night and day.
The car has way
more power and torque. The power comes on sooner
and stays longer. The throttle response is great,
and my wife's SL600 can't keep up. Now she wants
to get a Veloce Performance
tune as well. I had better watch out! Thanks
D. Dimitratos, New York
Had an opportunity to
meet Dino last week when he came to NY on a business
trip.. During that time he reflashed the ECU on my S600
to give it some "pep". Boy did I get what I paid for!!
I entered my car in a local dyno competition on Saturday
just because it was $20 to get 2 Dyno pulls and the
prize for highest HP was an HKS EVC electronic boost
controller.. I said hey lets see how this new reflash is
working.. My car was the 4th one on at 12pm and it layed
down 470rwhp and 570 ft/lbs of torque on a Mustang
Dynamometer (they are the lowest reading dynos)
Everyone's jaw dropped when they saw the torque reading
go off the charts (max power was set for 500 lol!
ReDynoed the car tonite on a Dyno Dynamics. 508rwhp and
602lbs/ft AF was a nice steady 11.90 across the board!!
I suspect car has ALOT more torque left in it as the run
was started at 3900rpms and it shot straight to 602..
Gonna try 3000 RPMs next time!! This thing is a

Just wanted to share with
everyone how exceptionally pleased I am with my Veloce
Performance ECU upgrade. While I don't have before/after
dyno numbers, my '04 SL55 pulls significantly stronger
throughout the power band and has much better throttle
response. Nothing else has been done to the car -- I
have yet to replace the stock air filters with K&Ns,
which Dino also recommended. I doubt I'll even touch the
Equally important, Dino was incredibly responsive and
sent his tech over to do the flash the next business
day. Hard to find that kind of service these days.
Hats off to Dino for an excellent product and fantastic
Mike upgraded to our ECU/Pulley package and has dyno'd
at 469hp/491 lb. ft. tq (at the wheels). Which
translates to 585hp/620 lb. ft. tq at the crank.
He has since run an 11.3 1/4 mi!

"I can’t tell you how happy I am with the Veloce Performance
tuning package on my Mercedes Benz CL600. The car was fast

there isn’t much that can keep up with it. I compared tuning
