Finally took the plunge and bought a power wagon. Was going to buy one in 2016 but the wife unit talked me out of it because she hated the graphics on it. So I finally won the argument recently.

Now I'm looking for some good wheeling spots in SE michigan.

Tune - 2-3000. Is that thousands of dollars? A dyno tune should only cost you about $1,000 depending on what they have to do.

If I remember correctly. The old tuners you had to buy a tuner,pcm, and dyno tune it. Could be wrong but I decided against it on my 2016

Ok....you got one of the newer trucks where you have to do the pcm. That adds to the cost. I've got over 30 dyno runs on my car on 2 different dynos. 10 runs on a Mustang, and 20+ on a DynoJet.
