Hey, I want to get this out there with all the questions, I'm getting. We also need to make Dom's travel arrangements very soon to get the best rates. So here is the best guess of where we're at.

Our costs will be:
[email protected] $1000 / day plus travel
Travel [email protected] $700
[email protected] $90/ hr. (confirmed)
Est. Total= $4500 based on 2 days tunes at 20 hours total time

So a quick calculation figuring 2 days at 10 hrs./ day = 20 hrs. Divide our total cost by the 20 hours gives me around $225/ hr. on the dyno with Dom. So it all depends on the type of tune you will be getting.. Layvon's tune will be the most complicated with a stand alone ECU/ rotated large injectors and it could take 5 hrs. My tune is stock location, stock ECU, MAF/ SD hybrid tune and large injectors, if everything is good it may take 3 hrs. but it could also be done in 2 with no hitches.

We have to guarantee Dom the 1k per day and travel costs. If you send me a deposit and this falls apart I will send you the deposit back but this is where we are right now and we will need to book Dom's ticket very soon. I am going to take care of these things, Dewey's got the dyno and has commited to have a tech on stand by time N/C (which is awesome), so we have to commit and get things sorted out. I'm not nor is anyone else besides Dom making any profit off this. Even Dom is not killing it but he can't loose money doing it. If someone has a problem we have down time and Dom is then idle so that's his and our risk.

I will plug this all into a spread sheet and post up for everyone, so clear visibility!

I've got a MPS long rod 2.5 block in my car and I want Dom to tune it, so that's my stake in this, that and it will be fun to hang out with he and the 6star guys! So come on and let's do this with Dom and give him some fun cars to tune Midwest style.
