Just wondering about the prices of a good tune over in the states

Here in Norway its insanely expensive , a decent tune will cost me around 5500$ for my 98 GSX

What we norwegians do most of the time is drive to Sweden or even Finnland for the same tune , half the price

Holy balls $5500? Local place with an AWD dyno:
Dyno time hourly you tune $100
Dyno time hourly we tune $149 ( piggyback systems safc ect.. )
Dyno time hourly we tune $199 ( standalone, EMS, ect.. )

Or you could be like me, volunteer to work there a bit and see what happens.

A tune for me ended up costing $210 with Link. How the samH E L L would it cost $5500 for a simple tune? You could buy 5 1g's for that.

dont mean to hijack the thread but does anyone know how much I'd expect for a tune from a place like AMS?

I know it depends on the car but I'm trying to figure how much I need to take with me if I go to a big name place like AMS.

I know most shops would run $300-$400.
I'm not sure if it takes a place like that 2 hours or what to tune a car.
My car would already be tuned somewhat decent I'd just want it fine tuned and full potential gotten out of it. I'm not sure if I should be looking at $500 or like $700.

Why would you drive all the way down there? Modern Automotive Performance is like an hour away from you. Very reputable too! Over in Plymouth. Before I left for the Army I got my car tuned there!
