I was looking for a performance chip for my diesel truck they told me it would be $298 for the chip and $100 for installation. I was able to find the same chip on line for $137 and then I had them install it for $100 it took them exactly 1 hour. The service was good and professional. They may be over priced when it comes to buying product but they really do good work. I will most likely use them again.

CPS saved me a lot of money by just doing a little research and/or figuring it out on their own. My rack and pinion went out in my truck. Between the dealership and a few other shops stating that the engine "had" to be pulled and costing from $1,500 to $ 5,000. CPS was able to work around pulling the engine and eliminated approximately 10 man hours. Good job CPS!

by - Verified Customer August 10, 2016
