    Yeah you have to remeber these guys have overheads and dyno time cost usually $100 per hour.
    Dynos are a good tuning tool but its also good to tune driving on the road to get the driveabilty.
    Only reason i do tunes cheaper is i dont have a workshop and overheads to pay for.
    Once you have a shop you have to cover costs and make a reasonable profit.
    I think $1400 is over board but anything under $1000 with dyno time is very reasonable providing
    its a good tune.
    Only way to really tune is live in real time while the engines running and use live data logging.

    PM chargedvx6 on this forum, I am pretty sure he has the software and the use of a dyno.

    It is far easier, more accurate and safer to use a dyno when chasing power/torque than what it is to do it on the road.
