Tune needed for BSD??

I already have Tom's 93 octane tune for my header, exhaust and SRI but I'm curious if a BSD will require an update? I don't see why it would need one but just want to make sure before I go ahead and pull the balance shafts. I'm also installing massive's oil baffle as well

That's what I'm saying.. I'm only asking because I read an archived thread where some guy installed it and said he had to wait for his ecu to relearn??? Trying to make sense out of it but it's probably nothing

The ECU will have no idea if the BSD has been deleted or not.
