I've seen anywhere from $100/hour or between $400-600. Different places charge different rates. Just find a reputable tuner and do some pricing.

If you only want 7-8 PSI of bppst, all you need to do is buy a turbo kit from either Greddy, or Turbonetics. They run about $3,500 and have EVERYTHING you need, including the fuel and timing management. This means you DO NOT have to get it tuned anywhere. And remember a QUALITY turbo kit will run AT LEAST $3,000. anything less than that and you are buying pure GARBAGE! A quality turbo by itself is $900-$2,500. So if you are looking at one of those $500-$800 "kits" send me your money and it will be safer than blowing your motor with that garbage. Look at those people that say "turbo's ruin your car, my motor blew in 2 months, my manifold cracked, blah blah blah." they are the ones who spent $600 on their kit, and now they have no car to drive because of it, GREAT DEAL huh!
