    To tune or not to tune

    I was wondering if now is a good time to get my car tuned. I have just installed a bbk ssi intake and ftp lid. Other then that I have all the free mods done. I will be getting headers and an exhaust in the next 6 months and was gonna wait till after that's on to tune my car. Its an automatic, and I really think the tune will wake the car up. Should I wait the 6 months or just get it tuned now. Frost is like 45 mins from where I live and was gonna have him do it. Which leads to my next question for frost, same price for every tune or do you charge less for repeat customers?

    You could gain alot from a tune now, but a retune will be necessary with headers

    Just saw this, but I replied to your email a day or two ago.

    Typically, once you have gone through full tuning, I work on the car by the hr which is cheaper. The addition of headers should not take more than a single hour and you have the choice of on or off dyno for the update.
