How much does a Ford Explorer Sport tuning cost?

My older SUV has become a bit doggy, so I took it to my mechanic. He doesn’t see anything wrong with the engine, but suggested I look into a professional dyno tune if I want more power. How much does a Ford Explorer Sport tuning cost?

A professional Stage 1 Ford Explorer Sport tuning runs about $150 an hour with an expert tuner, who should be able to help you out.
However, you’ll want to be realistic about what to expect—and clear about your budget. A basic tune will run 2-4 hours, but it may take a bit longer or involve other fees as well.
A stage one tune involves remapping your Explorer’s electronic control unit (ECU), which means the tuner will hook up your SUV to a dynamometer, analyze the readings, and make adjustments to the original computer settings.
Once you have a base tuning completed, you can then proceed to a Stage 2 tune. Most often it is at Stage 2 that the mechanic will focus on your Explorer’s exhaust and air intake systems and modify them by installing aftermarket parts.
A Ford Explorer Sport tuning can wind up taking more time (and money) than you first anticipated. First, you need to decide what your goals are. After setting your goals, you need to look at your budget.
