Tuning a e46 with turbo..

Ok so I have looked over the thread and read a couple posts with people posting up turbo kits asking if this will work.. Honestly I was going to do the same thing.. After reading seems that most the kits will work! But it's the tune that is the problem. And having driven a honda for a while I understand the difference.. My question is.. Does anybody know a place that can do a tune on an E46?
Any help is great! I'm in Omaha Nebraska. Any places close. And by close I mean. Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, somewhere in Texas even?

I'm just curious, what do you think this "tune" probably with Dyno time should cost you ???

Yep, and I'm ALWAYS thinking of you when I ask these questions. I don't think these guys have a clue.

i was quoted 1500-2000 for a standalone tune from scratch and after a run in period on the turbo setup, anywhere up to another 600bucks to dial in some fuel economy and efficiency.

coming from a turbo Nissan background the price is comparable to other cars ive done similar too.

No idea if using stock ecu is possible> I haven't searched.

the tuning figures above are with me buying and installing the ecu myself
