That's what tunes should cost, then you wouldn't have a watered down market with these wannabe tuners blowing sheeiit up.
A tune is the most important part of the process, if you have access to a quality tuner, who knows what he/she is doing, cost shouldn't be the deciding factor.
But we'll continue to see this trend for sometime to come I'm gonna guess.
at the same time paying for dyno time and flights, lodging, ect adds up.
I tried doing this before and had tons of people interested but it never pans out.
Good luck guys!
Dom is a great tuner, I had him tune my WRX, and wish he was local. That map was absolutely amazing, car never felt so great.
