SEMA Virtual Education

The Future of Tuning

Includes a Live Event on 08/25/2022 at 11:00 AM (PDT)

As the OEMs continue to lock down access to their computer controls more tightly, it will become more and more difficult to modify the powertrains, as we won’t have the ability to re-calibrate the computer for the given modification. Chris will discuss how innovative software companies like his are working to continue to provide needed access to these vehicles and their computer control systems.
