Haha, we don't even pay for that since we have our own dyno..
Josh,
My original Tuner, GST Motorsports charged $500 for 1st tune when I had only a Downpipe. When I brought it back for all the additional modifications, it was $300 for updated tune.

The reason I'm looking around, is because I feel like he is not putting much into driveability.

When I looked at Mann Engineering site, they showed that Will from Delicious Tuning would be visiting and they were taking deposits. I have heard good things about him, so without even thinking about it, I paypal'd $200 deposit to secure a spot, but then came to find out that my tune would cost over $1600 with mandatory inspection fee. That seems ludicrous, even if we are in the Bay Area. After writing the original post here, I've done some internet searching and found that he (Delicious) charges big money for tunes. When I went on his site and saw $450, I didn't realize that this was for only for E-Tunes.

Mann Engineering has the Maha Dyno and Will just comes and uses it. Probably gets the lion's share of the $1600+ and just pays to rent the Dyno during his visit. Either way, I will not pay that much for a tune.

I am looking into Snail Performance and need to have a phone chat about tuning. It's on me that I went back to GST for another tune, because I wasn't thrilled with the 1st one and went back to my OTS map from Cobb, which was quite good, in my opinion. GST felt like Cobb's AF target's were too lean...

I haven't worked with the guys at Delicious Tuning other than chatting with them about flex fuel for EVOXs with the AccessPort. They seem sharp and I'd expect they'll do a great job tuning your car.
