Dyno Tuning Policies
What you need to know before an appointment.
- No smoking in the shop. We have a designated smoking area outside the shop. Please dispose of your cigarette butts in the designated receptacle outside the shop.
- There is absolutely nobody allowed in front of the vehicle or near the dyno while the dyno is being operated.
- Please do not help yourself to tools or shop supplies unless you are told otherwise at the appointment.
Retunes are only applicable to ORIGINAL client who was tuned by Evans Tuning. If you purchase a car previously tuned by us, and are not the original owner/client the retune fee will not be honored. If you were tuned at another shop, and want us to tune the car a new tuning rate would apply. In addition, the appointment is only considered a retune if you are using the same system. Clients switching from one system to another will be charged the new tuning fee.
Tuning fees do not include race gas. Evans Tuning DOES NOT stock race gas. If you want a race gas or E85 tune, you will need to bring your own fuel.
Engine Damage NoticeIf you are tuned on a particular type of race gas, you MUST run that same type of race gas when you run your race gas tune. I tune the car specific to the fuel that is being used. If you run a different fuel, engine damage can and will occur!
Evans Tuning stocks NGK spark plugs. We have series 7's, 8's, and 9's in stock for purchase during your tuning appointment. Pricing can be found on our online store. We recommend having at least one extra set for a tuning appointment if you do not wish to purchase them from us.
This consists of 5-10 miles of variable loading while under partial throttle and boost conditions to seat the rings while keeping air/fuel ratios under an optimal level. Several compression and leak down tests are preform during the course of the break-in to ensure that the rings are seating properly.
Please be advised that the tuning fee does not include the cost of labor if something needs to be fixed on your car.
- Labor - $150/hour
- Welding - $175/hour + materials
The details about paying a deposit.
In order to schedule an appointment, we require a non-refundable $150 tuning deposit for new tuning appointments or a non-refundable $225 deposit for retunes before we guarantee an appointment. If you require parts for your tuning appointment the cost of parts must be charged in full to guarantee they will be in stock. We must receive the deposit at the time the appointment is scheduled. Appointments are guaranteed on a first come, first served basis. For instance, if you call to schedule an appointment, but do not pay the deposit at that time and another customer calls later that day and pays a deposit, we will not be able to hold that appointment for you. The deposit will be used towards your total bill on the day of your tuning appointment assuming one of the following happens:
- You show up for your scheduled tuning appointment
- You contact us one week (7 days) before your appointment in order to reschedule
Loss of deposit
You will lose your deposit if you do not give us one week (7 days) notice or if you simply do not show up for your appointment. Giving us 7 days notice means notifying us by the end of our business day, one week prior to the scheduled appointment. If you send us an email or call and leave us a message after we have already closed you will lose your deposit.
Deposits are not transferable
Please note that the deposit is non-refundable. If you decide that you do not want to have your car tuned by us, sell your car before your appointment, etc., your deposit will not be refunded. If we are notified at least one week in advance of this, we will put a credit on file for you that can be used towards a rescheduled tuning appointment or towards the purchase of products.
