To be eligible for return, your core must be postmarked within 7 days of receiving your order. Cores must be in good working condition and free from aesthetic defects (damaged case, corrosion, not tuner locked). If sending in a PCM with plastic connectors, they must be free from chips and any damage, and also all locking tabs must be intact. We reserve the right to make the final call on whether a PCM is eligible for core return or not. If you are planning to return a core that is LOCKED by another tuner, you must let us know ahead of time. Also, we will verify that the PCM can be unlocked and is viable before issuing a core return. You can also keep your stock core if you wish.
If you are notified that your core is not acceptable for return, it is your responsibility to cover return shipping to get it back to you. You most likely can still sell it on eBay to recoup some cost.
When sending your core back, include your contact information. Do not assume we can identify who you are by the return address (as a lot of people send packages through mailing centers). If there is no correspondence in the box, the core will be set aside until we are contacted.
Core returns are typically processed within 1-2 days of receiving the core. The core cost will be refunded to whatever method you paid with – either your paypal account or your credit card.
The modules we supply in core programs come with a one year warranty.
Your billing address and shipping address must match if this is your first order with PCM of NC.
Generally, an order for tuning takes 1-2 days to process and ship once we have received both an order sheet and a payment. PCM’s that are sent in receive first priority. They are normally shipped the same or next business day. If you are sending in a PCM, it is wise to call or email to verify that we will be open when your PCM arrives so that is not sitting here for a week over a holiday, etc.
Products are shipped as soon as possible. Occasionally during heavy ordering periods we run out of stock. You will be notified if we are out of stock, and given the option to wait or receive a refund. Please note that your credit card is charged when the order is placed, not when it is shipped. This is how the software works and we do not have control over that so we apologize for any inconvenience.
Sale pricing is only valid during the actual sale. We are not able to honor pricing after the sale has ended, nor are we able to refund the difference on orders placed before the sale period. This is only to ensure fairness to all customers.
When your order is shipped, the tracking number will be updated in our system and emailed to you.
Tuning: Due to the nature of our business we do not issue refunds as we are custom building programs specifically for your needs. We do however take great pride in our work and it is a pleasure to help you achieve a excellent running car. Things you can do to help us make our tune better are to provide datalogs, scanner readings, dyno sheets, or just a really helpful description of the problem. With our experience we can also help diagnose other problems which may be interfering with the tuning. By purchasing a tune from us you accept our return policy.
Products: Products are accepted for return within 30 days of purchase date. You must contact us first before sending anything back. Products must be NEW, not removed from packaging or installed. We do not reimburse shipping, and you are responsible for the return shipping. There is a 10% restocking fee. We reserve the right to make the final call on what is and is not eligible for return (i.e. if parts arrive damaged or appear to have been installed). Custom ground camshafts and cylinder heads are not eligible for returns.
For international shipments, we typically use United States Postal Service, either priority or express. Depending on location we can sometimes use UPS, but expect to incur duty on the receiving end. If our website does not allow you to process an international order, please email us and we will take care of it for you. Please note that USPS does not update their online tracking information as readily as other couriers.
Please include correspondence in your package when sending anything into us. If your vehicle also has a TCM, please send that in as well (ask us if you are not sure). Tell us your name, contact information, and the reason for sending in your PCM/etc (i.e. core return, reflash, etc). Due to the volume of packages that we receive, items that come in without any included correspondence are set aside until we are contacted. When sending in a PCM, please pack it carefully. We recommend wrapping in bubble wrap and securing it with packing paper/peanuts to keep it from getting slammed around in the box. Depending on the PCM, you should insure it for $100-$300+. If you need help determining a value give us a call at 704-307-4227.
If you are including your own return shipping, DO NOT SEND STAMPS. If you use USPS please send a prepaid LABEL. Please note that USPS packages are often picked up the following day as our mail runs early. Thank you!
We do our best to proof read and price check our website, but occasionally there may be mistakes. We reserve the right to make the final call on any pricing errors. We will either honor the listed price, offer for you to make up the difference, or offer a full refund depending on the circumstances. We apologize for any inconvenience.
