These are performance modifications that make a noticeable increase in performance and sporting driveability. The HP Tune ($800) modifies engine and transmission elements. The Vitesse ($180) is a plug and play module that increases the quickness (or lag) of throttle response, depending on how you set it up. Installation is a 20-minute amateur wrench job; once installed, it is adjustable on the fly. I call the Vitesse unit the best sub-$200 mod you can make to your Corvette.
