    header install and tune price

    I just wanted to get everybodies oppinion, I am going to order pacesetter lt's with ory. I was planning on doing the install myself but a guy at a local shop said he would install and dyno tune the car for $425. I think that sounds like a fair price, what do you guys think?

    yeah this guy gets 125/hr to tune and i am estimating it would take me about 8 hrs to install the headers from the ground so i think i'll let him do it and save myself the busted knuckels and blood pressure spikes lol

    Make sure he knows what he's doing.... Here in Dallas, most good shops charge ~500 bones for a dyno tune. If he does, that's a great deal.

    Outlaw motorsports is putting my headers on for 325 and dyno tune for 325 plus porting throttle body for 75 and putting 3.73 gears in for 225, just to give you a comparison on prices

    Definitely a good price. Like they said, that's usually just the TUNE price. It took me and a friend with a lift 5 hours to install. Plus a few more getting rid of leaks and adjusting everything so it doesn't hit later.
