You get what you pay for.

A canned tune? You may as well be running a resister on the MAF to run it leaner and cross your fingers it feels stronger. Oh, wait. It's that all some of these little black boxes operate?

I was gonna do a cheapo first so that way when I throw my header on it doesn't act funny I have other things I wanna do before I get a nice tune.

The plan is to go through Tom and do the turbo with tune but I want to upgrade fuel flow and possibly play with higher ratio cams.

If you are planning on going turbo, why spend money on a header, cams and a tune now?

I'm with rambleon. Save your money so you can turbo sooner.

Yep, don't buy much that gets tossed aside when adding the turbo IF you've got serious plans to go that way.

Tom's tuning you can reuse the tuner, have experience with the process as a plus, still out the $150 for the N/A tune once you go turbo.

Header or cams that don't work with the turbo - almost a total waste, as resale would be low.
