Nick includes a generic wastegate, a generic diverter valve and a generic turbo, if he charged 3000 for the tune alone, that comes to the exact price of his kit. how would that be more than his kit alone, and again, I'm way overestimating.

Again, not knocking the kit because for a BMW tuned on the factory DME, its a great deal but how would it be cheaper than building your own?
Exactly what have you valued your time at?

I've spent the last 2 years...and tons of hours, doing a custom setup on my 330i based on a TT kit.

You can bolt the TT kit on in a weekend.
