Dyno tune or reqular tune?

I am getting ready to take my truck over to Vector to get some goodies. After talking with Chris, I am going to get a tune/CAI/HSRK. All will be installed by them when I go into the shop. My question is in regaurds to a dyno tune. Will my truck perform a lot better if I dyno tune it, or should I just get the regular Vector tune because my mods are basic. Also, how much more money does it cost to do the dyno tune compared to the basic tune. My understanding is that your don't really need a dyno tune unless you have a custom setup of a few different mods.

A dyno tune will usually always be better than a regular "canned" tune, as each vehicle is different. Using the dyno, slight adjustments can be made based on air/fuel, timing, etc, depending on how the vehilce is running. Canned tunes use a "mean" or average set of adjustments on how most vehicles respond. The dyno tune will be a little more expensive, but it always worth it. Not only do you get a custom tune for your specific vehicle and the modifications it has, but you also get to see the results of your efforts. I would do a dyno tune if there was one close to me locally, however there it not. Go for the dyno tune, well worth it.

Even if a little more expensive, a dyno tune is worth the time and money. That way, the tune is just for your truck.

I would agree that a dyno tune is always better, but if you're planning more mods in the near future you could wait and dyno tune it after you've got all of the mods done.

How much more will it cost?? Right now I'm at $400 for the tune, $250 for CAI, and $100 for HSRK. This set-up should make my truck run very hard, but if i'm going to drop $750 on this set-up, I might as well get my moneys worth.

You can get that price from Chris.
