How Much Does A Good Engine Tuner Cost?

June 18, 2022

You can put a price on power, but you can't put a price on the kind of confidence a well-built, perfectly-optimized, and insanely strong truck can provide. Most trucks today are built with their full performance capabilities stifled a bit, to prevent the common man from taking things too far, pushing the pedal too hard, and rear-ending that old lady on the interstate.

But we're Custom Offsets, and you're truck enthusiasts - you know your truck has all the potential it needs to scream and rip down any road, paved or otherwise. So how can you unleash all the ponies your truck's engine is hiding?

The answer is easy to come by - grab yourself a top-quality engine tuner, friend. Today, we'll be taking you through a brief overview of what engine tuners are, how they work, and how much you can expect one to cost depending on the features you're looking for. Let's jump right in.

What Are Engine Tuners And What Do They Do?

Do you know that video where Jimi Hendrix goes full badass mode and tunes his guitar in the middle of a song? That's what engine tuners do for your truck - they can dial into the electronics that tell your engine what to do, and you can adjust any setting you want for more optimized performance, smoother gear shifting, and an overall increase in horsepower and torque output.

The result is that engine tuners can help your truck perform as it was meant to just by adjusting the sliders - so, instead of Standard tuning, a truck tuner can get you to Drop D in no time. Crunchy.
