Definitely go for the tune. Not only will it smell better, but it'll help you get the most gains out of your LT's!

Would you like cherry or grape?

Manhattan Oil Fuel Fragrances

And it's cheaper than a tune...

Did you do an ORY? If there are no cats, it's going to smell no matter how much tuning you have done. That is normal.
