$$ Custom Tune $$

How much does a custom tune normally run for an 04 GT? or does it depend on mods? or is a tune a tune no matter the mods? Just curious to see if I'm getting a good deal

Best way is to have it dyno tuned. That would depend on the Place tuning it. You are kind of at their mercy. If there is only a couple places locally, their prices should be close to each other. The place that did mine runs $250-$400. It just depends on set up. N/a cars were cheaper to do. $200-$250 or so.

Like I said. It's just what those guys charge. Does he have a web site? You can check out stanghi.com. That's who I got to do mine. If he's the only one doing tunes, he can charge whatever he wants I guess. Did that price include the tuner or do you have buy one also?

Re: $$ Custom Tune $$

I paid 100 bucks for 3 tunes, this did not include the tuner but it did include support for 8 weeks. Thats time to dyno the car and send data logs to the tuner.

Thus it also didnt include dyno time (75 bucks for a couple runs might take a couple sessions if remote tune is done via email)

you can ask for remote tuning where they dial into the computer doing the tune and the dyno shop manages the dyno stuff and all that.

I would say when all is said and done 400 for tuner then another 200-300 for tune.

I got lucky and mine ended up being 365 tuner, 100 tunes, 80 bucks to get it dyno tuned (twice) and finalized.

Re: $$ Custom Tune $$

it just depends, some places have a flat fee for tunes/tuner/time to tune and some charge by the hour it all depends.
