It's cheaper than having someone else tune it. They have to make adjustments for MAF transfer function, different injectors and I'm sure other odds and in's to make everything work like it is supposed to.Seems high considering they've tuned a number of these units and already have a base tune dialed in.
just cuz a steak restaurant is good at making steaks don’t mean you can go in and get a Wagyu for $9.99.I'm tuned with Lund and bought the tune/ngauge package deal about a year ago and got a flex and E85R tunes. Is it typical of Lund to charge an additional $500 for a FI tune?
FYI, boosted engines that started out NA will have ring gaps that are too tight for boost. This works ok for short pulls like dyno runs or quarter mile, but as soon as you do a longer pull the rings heat up enough to cause the ends to butt together and the ring lands break.
There's a few other threads and some good info about it on this forum.From another thread, curious on peoples opinion here.
