even if you didnt touch the AFR, just rescaling your torque management and improving your shift quality will make the car very differant.
If you dont think your going to install more go fast parts, you'd like the tune now. If you feel there are additional modifications in your near future, hold off on the tune so you dont have to pay for a touch up.
Thanks for the reply.
There are more parts/modifications on the way, just not sure when. I was going to get my own tuning software, as of the moment leaning towards hptuners.
The plan is though to tune lets say with current set up, and figure out what I am doing and learn how different tunes effect how it runs, and then adjust. Then down the road when I get a stall, or h/c, or this or that I will have a base of knowledge to learn from.
I just wasnt sure how big of difference I could expect from a fairly stock car. I know I could buy a tuner and apply a "tune" but I like to know whats being changed to get me where I am, and I know every car is different, so something that gives xxhp here wont give xxhp on that...if that makes sense.
