before and after tune(tom)

So im getting to my goal of saved funds and im looking to get toms tune. I have a FC4-2-1 header and a 2.25 exhaust system, ebay CAI, and a FC 65mm TB.

I just want to get a idea of how the car will be before and after, like any rough idea of hp and tq change. How the car will feel, gas millage and what not.

Thanks for the reply's in advance!

it varies from car to car what you will get from the tune. you may get a huge boost and you may not get anything. the tune on a N/A stock engine with bolt-ons is pretty much just for safety. the exhaust and intake upgrades will help air flow into and through the motor better which makes more power. but the computer is still squirting the same amount of fuel as before the mods which makes the air to fuel mixture slightly leaner. lean means less fuel more air and rich means more fuel less air. if the mixture is TOO lean it can cause engine damage. the tune will tweak the air/fuel ration to where it needs to be alot with engine timing and all that jazz until the engine is operating as safely as possible with the mods. it just happens that many times a slight power gain comes with the said tweaking but not always.
