How much for a tune

I was wondering what everyone has been paying to get their car tuned? The one price I recieved was $400. Is this typical?

$150 here, but it's always been with Mods. installed too so there was a discount. $400 is on the high side for sure.

Actually $400 is about the average for a good tune. My first tune with mods (supercharger and full exhaust) was $400 and roughly 4 to 5 hours of tuning. When I added more mods and needed a retune I was charged $200 at the same shop.

Maybe you did hear that. Some tune cars as a side thing to make a little cash so maybe they don't charge as much. Maybe they don't tune for more than an hour or so either. Someone trying to run a business understandably will charge more based on the average fee compared to other businesses (tuners). I've seen fees as high as $600 and as low as $100.

For a full Dyno Tune. 400.00 is a average price. My shop gave me a lifetime Dyno tune for 500.00. It already has paid for itself becasue my car has been tuned 3 times for different mods and I am not through yet

447 CI forged stroker [ 7.3 liter ] 6 Bolt main caps
Holley Modular Mid rise Intake Manifold.
F1 Procharger ,

Just way too much to list,
