    Perhaps I misunderstood, or the wording is misleading.

    This is from Harvey's website:

    Tuning is either by the hour or by the map, please call, email, or come by for a quote. Pricing will be $175 per hour. Maps for common reflash systems will be $375 for the first map, and $175 for the second when made during the same session. Uncommon systems and setups will need to be charged by the hour after 3.5 hours.
    I took that to mean it would be $375 for a basic custom pro-tune on an Accessport or via RomRaider, etc. Since Harvey tunes Subaru's all day, I don't see why it would take him any more than 2 hours to nail down a fairly decent tune...unless it's on some kind of crazy big turbo or built engine or something special, I don't know.

    I do know that it doesn't take Nick at Mac any more than 2 hours usually to nail down a tune. And that's including time he takes off from the tune to run around the shop and put out fires like a chicken with his head cut off. Now, just because he gets it done fast doesn't mean it's right, I know, but still...many have had success and happiness from Nick's tunes that he bangs out pretty quickly.

    I don't know what Mac's hourly rate is, but Nick usually nails a pro-tune in 2-3 hours at most. I paid $350 for my tune there and everyone I have talked to that has been there hasn't paid more than $350-$400 usually. Especially if it's a Subaru or Evo which Nick has a lot of experience tuning. That's all I was saying. I always heard a tune from Harvey can cost upwards of $500. But both are great tuners no doubt.

    i dont see how harvey would charge that much especially when he gives his rates flat out. Nick did my tune in less than an houd on upenecu and charged me $350. You need to set a price for what your getting before you actually get the tune and then find out whats coming out of your wallet.

    Did your price for the tune include any kind of diagnostic fee for them figuring out what was going on with your boost controller/solenoid/restrictor pill?

    Why, is your tune jacked? I remember you telling me you never got a dyno printout. Did you ever get that?

    Why, because it only took him an hour?

    Glad you got your printout though. What were your AFRs and torque like we were discussing? Post up that dyno sheet!
