Car has a Vararam on it now. I have a set of Kooks LTs & will be adding a Corsa or SLP LM II axle-back with that.

Is it worth the few hundred bucks to have the car dyno tuned for these mods alone?

What kind of gains should I expect from the tune w/these mods? I tend to think that the trans tune (I have an A6) would net me the most benefit vs the rest of the tuning w/these mods, but maybe I'm wrong? :hail:

Id assume there is always improvement over a stock tune. If you have the money go for it. You will see some reasonable gains I would think

I don't like to waste $ so I was really hoping that folks could give me answers with actual numbers. :usa:

Converter would be next & probably a while before I do it. Then MAYBE a cam (I might not even have the car that long lol)

Tune it.... the gains will be worth the 300-500$.

If you were planning more mods sooner I would say hold off.

Guess: 1-2 tenths and 1-2mph.

Don't even have to get a dyno tune with the mods you have, unless you just want to spend the extra money to get the car really dialed in. But, a mail order would work just fine for just a bolt-on application.

I have tuned cars like yours and got improvements from 0.4 to 1 full second in 1/4 ET.

So yes, it's worth it. Just wait until mods are complete
