$1000 sounds alright, about $1300 is the goin rate, and $600 for a custom tune sounds about right to...

maybe checkout www.fordxr6turbo.com as there is always info on flash tuners on there.. hope that helps

hmmm the guys at BPT , http://norcom.net.au/~bpt/ , said they would do $1150 for me, and that includes a cutome tune, that sounds like a bargain, but im not sure what flash tuner box they use and whether capa's is better than it..... that and they are over in perth and i am in sydney :(

agreed, its how good the person tuning it is... a decent tuner will do a nice custom tune to get the most out of your vehicle...
