    If I get my suspension done and get 80# injectors in, I'll need a quick retune from Casey. I would need a retune on my E85 and gas programs.

    Guys, I think most of us are covered as far as hardware(chip or handheld) but I need to know 2 weeks in advance if anyone needs either one of these if you want a tune and do not have either. This will be an extra cost to the $400 tune price. Please PM me within this timeframe so I can let the tuner know.

    Ok final breakdown
    -Dyno pulls $60/car ($50 if we have 8 or more)
    -Tunes $400 if you have your own hardware (chips or handhelds)

    For tuner to provide hardware
    -chip tune $650
    -tuning using SCT X4 $775

    If that is all the tuning change you need I would try to wheel and deal with Casey in person. I'm sure he will be receptive to your situation. BUT if he is locked out of your current tune he will have to re-write it. Who's tune do you have right now?
