Honestly, I'd get headers before your tune.. You dont seem to heavily modded to NEED a tune, or even require. Yes it will help, but might as well get headers than tune to get the most bang for your buck. Just a suggestion..

The way to get the most bang for the buck is to get a tune for your mods then get FREE tune updates as you add more mods

Most mods you add would benifit from a CUSTOM tune and when you get FREE NA tune updates where can you go wrong

I charge 399.00 and 20.00 for shipping for that you get the xcal3 , full CUSTOM tuning not the normal cookie cutter preloaded tunes most other shops sell and FREE tune updates as you add more NA mods
