Went to a shop they said 100 dollars for the dyno they said they can put in a chip and a custom tune for 600-700 about 100 more if its supercharged is that fair or a little steep I herd about 500 is an average cost but is that with or without the chip he said 4-500 I can get it chipped with a factory out of the box tune. So 300ish for a custom retune after its chipped. Do the prices seem fair? He said he mostly does stangs but is not all he does. Let me know what you think?

Ok so this guy is expensive then? Well at least his chiping will be expensive but his tune cost is relatively average.... I feel i can get a better price on the tune then maybe after I dyno it I can talk to them get a better price this place is called RPM in ROHNERT park Ca, its only a ten min drive from my house so its conveniently located but I'm not willing to pay 300 more then what is seeming normal maybe ill chip it myself and get it Tuned after

You can buy the chip yourself too for $200 , then drop your car and chip off to the dyno shop

Besides a chip the only hand held tuner for 5.0 pushrod motors is the Anderson PMS $980

I thought "moates" had a tuner spelling might be wrong and there was another one I can't think of the name but I want to go with the Anderson because that's the one my buddy told me I should go with and seems to be most used by other people

Here in town our college has a dyno and every now and then they have what's called a dyno day and for 45$ you come put ur car on see what it runs and if other people are there they can bet on what it runs in hp and 1/4 and 1/8 but just something fun and 800$ sounds like a lot to me but i don't really know much about dynoing

I refuse to get my car tuned anywhere around where I live because everyone wants 5-600 just to throw it on the f'n dyno
Is that including the chip?

They have a few around here for a dyno day but they only do dyno pulls they don't tune it for you!

Nope. My car is already setup. They say the complications of the supercharger and meth injection on my car are why the price doubles. So I take it to a guy that builds prostreet motors for quite a few ford guys and get it done for usually around $350 depending on how many pulls I run. The thing that sucks is its about 4 hours away so I've gotta trailer my car there.

Yea that sucks it seems like if I want to get a cheaper job I got to travel a couple hours .... They try to get as much as possible at this shop I went to and there quotes for parts were double what they shoulda been I think it's my location in Sonoma county we got a lot of rich old guys with classics and super cars with all these wineries and amazing back roads leading threw them I don't think I'm going to find a cheap place near home to tune the college was a good idea for dyno tho..... you got yourself a good looking fox rwsmith
