Well I need a retune anyways so might as well... I was thinking the 30#ers would be enough for e85 and nitrous at my power level but I guess if I do heads or something else later I should go for 39 or 42#ers...
I found on an e85 website for a rough estimate to multiply your current injectors by 1.47 if your going to run e85.
Maybe I'll do the dynotunes first (one 93 octane and one e85) then run the nitrous when I have the money... 42s are expensive.. Chris I know this is a broad question but what is typical for 2 dynotunes price wise?
Varies wildly dependent on variables. Hardware, brand, licencing, labor, dyno time, tuner (person), etc... I personally don't tune cars myself. I am a dyno operator which is a bit different, I provide HP/TQ numbers for clients or set the dyno for specific load applications to make adjustments to vehicle parameters. I stay out of the professional tuning business due to the liability, I was even sent to seminars and training to tune vehicles and still choose not to, but many people bring me vehicles with their own setups, for example I have a few mustang customers with SCT X-Cal2&3's and PRP that come to me to run the dyno, they pay by the hour, I provide the load and vehicle simulations, sometimes a wideband (most of them have their own wired to the vehicle) and they make adjustments themselves.
On a personal level I have a tuner that I use (Don LaSota) he requires datalogs and makes adjustments to the tune until it is correct via email. His required data is obtainable under controlled street environments as well as on a dyno. I sometimes regret not getting a PRP but I haven't needed an adjustment in my tune. He dialed it in perfect. However when I change my intake manifold, switch to headers, add a blower, increase injector size, switch to E-85, and change to an SCT big air MAF, I'll make the plunge to PRP and pay for his tune, giving me the opportunity to make big changes on my own in the future.
I charge $150 per hour up to 5hrs. The rate drops above that to a daily rate.
