talking to a tuning shop about my truck and asked how much for a basic tune...heres the responce i got
If you just want a reflash and we dont need to put it on the dyno, $100. If you want it on the dyno for before/after pulls, $175. If we need to actually tune for anything, chances are the flash should be sufficient, it goes up from there.
my only mods are 6337 intake, and muffler delete
if i did this, itd be the $100 tune with no dyno pulls
what are your guys thoughts on this? should i go for it? what could i expect to gain?
it would be a flash with sct software, he says projected gains would be anywhere from 85 hp/130 lb-ft to 110hp/200 lb-ft depending on usage....it would be a performance tune, but it would be direct flash instead of using a chip or hand held
not sure, i only asked him for an estimated number on a truck with the 6337 intake and muffler delete...he said 4" turbo back would help, but isnt necessary for the tune
and if theres ever a problem, i could take it back there and have the stock tune reflashed onto it, the shop isnt far away
Cant see how your going to get that hp range out of stock sticks and stock charger. Most of the time the reason you need to get it back to the stock setting is because something isnt right with the truck and it wont start.
08 F-250 CCSB king ranch erics tunes livewire
1985 Peterbilt 359 Big cam III Tuned up a little
no 85 isnt its the 110hp/200tq that is a little questionable with a pretty much stock factory truck (ie stock exhaust,stick,charger)
i think thats why he gave me a general range and isnt promising 110/200
i would assume with the 4" turbo back and aggressive tune, that the 110 would be plausible, but it would probably run really hot and need an intercooler...(i was talking to him about possibly adding the 4" turbo back)
im just looking for something basic to give it a little more power and a little more mpg...not making a drag truck or anything, but ive never heard of doing direct flashes like this so i thought ide get opinions first
