If you plan on doing more mods in the future I would go the email tune route for now,later with more mods do the dyno tune.

I have paid $495 per CMR tune in the Washington, DC area. DTP in Virginia Beach charges $85 per hour for a dyno tune.

can you get a emailed correct tune for those mods from diablo?
how much would i be missing out on not going the custom rout?
how much does an emailed tune cost or is it free from diablo?

There are a few vendors that offer email tunes.Not sure how much you would be missing out on not going on a dyno,cant be much with those being your only mods.

I believe Josh at HHP or Joan from Diablo are two of the best hemi tuners.Looking to spend just over $100 for a email tune.

Paid $285 for a dyno run tune- wasn't that great.

Paid $500 for dyno tune as part of cam install. That sucker is awesome.

Between 400-500 is typical for a tune. But that doesn't mean its a good... Most drivers new to mods and EFI tunes (compared to your stocker) probably wouldn't know if a tune was bad unless it was un-drivable. There is a gray area in which it will operate and not throw codes, but it would not be at its true potential.

I'd just wait and get all the parts you want and then tune. Email tunes can be a good starting point, but the only successful cars ive seen were "perfected" on the dyno, like anyone would guess.

I paid about 500 to have my supercharged cobra tuned on a dyno, took about 2 hours total time (was some installation involved) and he made 3 tunes for the handheld tuner to use, stock, hp, and torque (or stock, street performance, and race however you want to label them).
