Tuning

Ok folks! Im thinking about getting "Monica" tuned. I would like to get rid of the rev limiter set at 3k when in park for starters!!! Ive been searching my local area and dont really know who i should trust(at this point Ive been reading reviews and looking through shop pics).
What are some prices people average in paying (since im oblivious to any type of work to even begin thinking of fair pricing) and I have not installed an exhaust or aftermarket wheels yet so should i just wait until all upgrades are complete to do tuning or is it ok to squeeze some HP out of tuning and add upgrades later?
IM SO LOST!!!!

"Monica" 2014 1 LT Summit White LFX w/ VMAX throttle body, BBK CAI, E2 catch can w\ clean air separator, Weather Tech all around floor mats, PFYC.com OEM spoiler, CORSA w\ XO-Pipe Sport Performance exhaust, and much more to come!

It's worth it to upgrade as much as you want, then go get tuned.

I'd say you are looking around $300-$500 for the tune.

Yes, a tune can void the powertrain warranty.

What is your area so we can recommend some folks to talk to. There aren't a whole lot that deal with the LLT/LFX....

I have 3 names off the top of my head. I have FHE with the first two (Haddad being the better of the 2 tune-wise) but remember I have an 8 so I am not sure if they have the software for the 6 (way different ECM's)...

1. Haddad Motorsports (Inglewood, CA)
2. Synergy Motorsports (Hayward, CA)
3. CMS Motorsports (Murrieta, CA)

Again, I don't know if he has the software for the 6 but my car is currently tuned (remotely, which means you need to datalog a little) by him (Ted @ Jannetty Racing Enterprises) and it is spot-on! You might want to call him
