So from what I'm seeing your talking at least 900 to do it correctly (tuner and dyno time), if sct or diablosport even come out with a base tune, just to get 30-40hp.
then an unknown amount for unknown parts to get another 20hp plus additional tuning costs (if said parts even appear on the market).
engine build? lets not even go into those costs and the associated turbo and parts upgrades costs.

becomes pretty cost prohibitive pretty quick to alot of these guys to do anything with these cars, other than the old tint, wheels, springs, and maybe exhaust thing.
