Depends on the tuner.

It should be noted for some people on this thread that a reflash is if you currently have GIAC software.

If you have for e.g a APR program then you would have to pay full price for the software, thus the $700-800 price.

GIAC has to make money on his software, a lot of work is involved in development.

Find someone who wants to trade your APR k03 software for a GIAC chip. Then pay the difference for a reflash. This is the most cost effective solution.

This is why to purchase the K04 as a kit is still very good value...

You should get software that is tuned for the K04-015 and your engine to get the most out of it.

Nothing is free in this world...

As mmart said, you should sell your APR ECU to someone, or as a swap to make the price difference less...
