Dnno tuning cams?

Ok, I have a 2001 ZX3 with a FS tuned XCal 2 and FR 2 cams. I had the XCal 2 before I had cams, so it's basically a general tune for stock cams 93 octane. How much of a gain could I expect if I had my car dyno tuned for the cams? Tuning is $100/hr where I would be going, is it worth it?

Its worth it to just get the cams adjusted properly , I do custom tuning as well and for NA ZX3 i charge a flat fee of 250.00 that covers dyno time and tuning as well as adjusting the cam gears

Im located just out side of Charlotte
