Question for Tom

I was quoted by another tuner that the cost of a tune with the following parts installed on my car was going to cost me $300 plus I would have to pay for each update.

2007 Focus ZX3 Duratec 2.0L (ECU code SRX2)
Steeda SRI (currently installed)
Cosworth modified intake manifold
CFM 67mm throttle body
OBX header (awaiting delivery)
FSWERKS race exhaust (currently installed)
AEM wideband (I was told this was a necessity because of the Cosworth intake manifold)

I know it says that you offer free updates in the forums, but I wondered if the cost of the tune changed due to equipment installed.

I also want the tune optimized for 93 octane, turn off 2/3 O2 sensors, EGR disabled, etc.

http://www.erzperformance.com/OBX-Ra.../obx108992.htm
Also which bung should I use for the best AFR reading on this header?

The $300 I was quoted did not even include the XCAL3 flasher, that was just for the tuning. You just found yourself a new customer.

Check your private messages Tom. I don't want to appear to be bashing anyone or anything.
