    Pro tune costs

    I assume it will void warranties so I am holding off of doing pro tunes but am wondering what the average pro tune costs? I hear even at stock a pro tune can give great gains and such. I am having the SPT CBE installed within the week and doubt the dealer would tune for it though i've heard its more or less plug and play.

    I'm in MD where i hear Agile Auto is the way to go for tuning. I'm also near Mach V so either is an option.

    prices will vary depending on where you go. if you have those 2 shops in mind, you'll want to call them and ask specifically.

    i paid $300 for my protune

    Now I do not have an A/P so short of buying one, is OpenSource a usual option or am I stuck buying an A/P?

    Well a "protune" is a custom tune using an access port.

    If you're not using an AP it would just be an opensource tune

    Again you'll want to contact shops and see what their tuners prefer. Some do not work with accessports and will only do opensource

    pro tune can be done with a cobb ap or open source, open source is cheaper because you wont be getting an ap. both can have similar results.

    unless the dealer can prove that the modification caused the damage....then it most definitely can void your warranty

    Whatchou talkin bout Willis (or Dez)? "Protune" is just short for "professional tune" and refers to anything that's not OEM. A Cobb tune, opensource, etc are all protunes.

    Hill at Agile tuned my car. It was $500 and I have no complaints.

    However, if your going to spend the money you'll want to get a few parts to make the protune worth it over a base Cobb map or Torqued Performance.

    I think she's illuding to the difference between an off the shelf map flash, and an actual tune.

    I'm gonna leave this right hurrr, Hey everybody new to the forum: READ THIS! - NASIOC

    You should read through a few of those links on the page and in reference to your question the "Tuner FAQ" should help you understand.

    The term "Protune" was coined by Cobb pretty much when they introduced their commercial "ProTuner" software for the Accessport almost a decade ago. Nobody used that term until Cobb did. Any shop that bought a license for Cobb's proprietary software was known as a "ProTuner" and went on Cobb's list of shops. So you would bring your car and AP to one of Cobb's licensed "ProTuners" and got a "Protune". It's semantics really. They have a new generation of software and have now changed the name to "AccessTuner"

    couldnt be more wrong. check out some of the threads on iwsti where you can talk directly to a subaru employee that denies warranty claims all the time because of mods
