$500.00 is a very cheap ball park tune,especially where knock might be present.
getting exact a/f readings under power. This also gives you the ability to choose an A/F ratio to start with and then road test with a real number to start with.
street tune and race tune can both be tested on the same day.write down the results in a jounal,now knowing what a jet/air bleed chainge will do for your engine

If you build a very mild street engine then all this information will be moot
yup.. but if you go this route, it is wise to have a few different power valves, ramps /shooters/ accel pumps/ jets and gaskets,, and in some cases air bleeds.. plugs in a few different heat ranges if you find a shop that remembers what a carb is.lol
and have already done a basic tune up.. (cap/rotor/plugs/wires/etc)

nothing worse than getting there and haven't to run around looking for part..
