How much should a reflash cost?

Hey all
I gotta have my PCM reflashed. One of my plugs had gone bad and the computer started relearning and adjusting.
After a month I replaced the plugs and I guess the bad plug had caused this ugly idling.
Now I want to reflash my PCM to get my computer to start over.
I went to the local dealer and they said I need to set an appointment a couple days in advance and it will cost me $190. Is that right?

Part Deux is absolutely correct, if brief. The PCM's flash memory is only modified when a new program is flashed in. This is done either by the dealership with a StarScan device or with a custom programmer such as the DiabloSport Predator.

On the other hand, learned adaptives are stored in volatile memory that is not flash memory, and is lost when you drop battery power. That's what you want.

Now, it's entirely possible you might benefit from a flash to a newer PCM code for other reasons, but for what's stated... no.
