Unhappy newbie wants to dyno

ok, i admit that i don't know jack about cars (but i'm learning).I just got off the phone with someone who works at an auto parts store and he said that dyno-ing a car costs about $100. is this true? if so, that's a lot of money for me. i don't really see the point in doing that to my car at this point cuz i don't have anything installed. what's y'alls opinion?

Is this the cost to dyno-tune your car for mods or just to put your car on the dyno to see your current HP/Torque rating ?

I dynoed my stock Focus for a baseline this weekend and it didn't cost me anything. A day trip to my uncles house in WV and a 12 pack of beer for the dyno operator. I have heard it is around 50-100 for dyno runs depending.

Well, I guess those dyno machines aren't cheap and they gotta pay for them somehow...

With the mods listed below my ATX laid down 104 hp and 107.8 lb ft of torque, your numbers are good for just a panel filter and chip.
