Dyno tuning them means going to a place that has a dyno and running the car to get a base line. Then adj the cam gears a little then make some more pulls. You keep doing this over and over till you find the optimal settings. Should take less than an hour. Most shops charge hourly for dyno time. Cam gears would be a good step in the right direction with all the mods you have now. With my cam gears dialed in on my stock cams I gain power everywhere. My car used to fall on it's face after 5k rpm to rev limiter, after the tuning I could pull all the way. But the over all power band was much broader with tq everywhere. Really made the car a lot more fun to drive.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
