A tune isnt a hugh power adder that would transform your car from not squeaking to squeaking the tires at stop lights

Tunes do add power and the more mods you have the more performance you can see from a tune , a good tune can do a lot more , better starts , better idle , better mid range cruise and performance under normal driving conditions , better MPG , better and firmer shifts for the ATX guys etc.etc.

Yeah basically tunes don't really add power, they just maximize the efficiency of your mods. They do a bit, but not like you are thinking.

Now-- if you start adding things like headers and cams, a tune will benefit you more than just with a stock set-up.

I tuned when all i have is an intake, and i definately notice that the car is more refined. plus, i'm an ATX-er, so tom gave me the hook up there too!
