no one is going to answer this. Mostly because tuning is a business, and they dont trade programs or ideas for the competition to use.

Which is exactly why the market needs some saturation. Because I think somewhere around $300 is reasonable for a tuned chip, $600? Not so much! http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/ack2.gif Keep working on it! Get us some competition up in here... I've always favored a low-margin/high volume over a high margin/low volume sales strategy. There is an equilibrium price, but I don't think it's $600. I'll give you that $400-450 could be reasonable, but I'm not even considering an ECU tune because I just can't afford that. I wish I could. And now that there's a baby on the way, I'm probably just pretty much buggered. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Keep in mind, low margin/high volume often equates to crappy customer service. When was the last time you walked out of a Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Meineke, or Best Buy and thought to yourself "Wow, that person I spoke with was informed on the latest products, helpful, and really was able to educate me on my purchase. If I have problems down the road, I feel confident that they will be able to find a solution."

I'm not saying a little capitalistic competition is bad. Just keep in mind that a lot of that margin is what pays for having someone on the other end of the phone/e-mail who's able to get you out of a jamb. When you're dealing with something as complex as engine tuning and then trying to do it with a car you've never seen, it's worth a little extra to make sure you've got the support you need.

Yous Guys are kidding right? competition, business. most of us enthusist have little or very limited knowledge or even the desire to map their own settings. It seems in the "non nissan" wourld that their is much greater sharing of tech info besides what exhaust or offset is cool. If any one knows pm me I will keep it a carefully guarded secret. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/Angel_anim.gif

FWIW I'm working on ECU tuning for the S13 KA24DE-T. I'll have some dyno sheets in less than a month, along with data logs to show.
