    most dyno tunes cost $450-$550...personally I know people that charge $150-250 and do a better job & get better times then the shops that tune on dynos. So i guess you could say $150 and up

    Rp performance or GMMG, but GMMG won't do it unless you know them.

    Are the hand helds not worth the money?

    I would say no...most handhelds cost within $100 of a full tuning program ie hptuners or tunercat and only can do a small portion of what full tuning programs can.

    A dyno tune normally cost about $600 and a tune normally costs about $300-$350. I know that is what RP Motorsports cost. Normally after the first time they will only charge you dyno time. I got lucky and got mine Dyno tuned for $300. That is a deal.

    Here's the results! Considering the AFR was almost PERFECT to begin with, he managed to push out 23HP. I'm happy. My car feels like a totally different car. My best at the strip is 8.572 @ 85 mph. I wonder if I can hit 8.3's this thursday??

    Was this with just a tune? The AF line is a little hard to read, did he lean it out a little? Increase timing?
