    If you get the car tuned on the dyno while it is boltons, future updates to the same short block (adding heads/cam, FI, etc) come at a $100 discount from listed prices.

    From what Frost is saying, that's a no brainer right there.

    If I understand correctly, the money you spend now for a bolt on tune is discounted from a full bore tune with cam and heads at a later date.

    How could you go wrong???

    $100 of it carries over against the cost of retuning when he adds the heads/cam.

    As far as what you will feel; that's hard to quantify. I have had owners that feel 8hp and a few that tell me that 40-50hp was 'kind of' noticeable. Heck, I had a guy tell me that he could hardly tell when his 100-hit of spray was working (??!)
