Yeah, the shop is friendly, but their prices arent great. They specialize in BMWs and N54s, yet have never heard of Vishnu tuning, and said i was crazy for using it instead of AAs flash-software. I was just like

It really comes down to if you're up for a large challenge or not, if you have the will power to possibly take 6 hours or more to do the job, then by all means go ahead, but if you're not sure if you're comfortable doing it, I would definitely have a shop do it
Im definitely up to the challenge, as i love working on the car. I have several buddies (EVO X 450awp, 300ZX TT 450 rwhp) that have worked on cars for years. I think i could recruit one or more of them to help Its more of a decision of whether the AA dps are worth the extra price (with the install being a bonus) over the VRSFs. Opinions?

If i ordered VRSFs DPs, what else would i need? I have a 220-pc Craftsman metric/imperial set of tools, but im sure there is something odd that i need...
