Default To dyno or not to dyno?

I've heard of people getting their cars dyno tuned. Would it help my car to get a dyno tune with the mods I have on it listed below?
How much does it cost and does anyone know a place in the St. louis area or south of that?

It would certainly help it, but with your mods you would only be looking at maybe 5-6Hp. It also would require you to have a tunable ecu or stand-alone engine management system like Hondata or AEM (big bucks). Without those things all they could really do is set your fuel pressure and timing which you can do at your house.

Basically, it would end up being around a grand for a dyno tune after all is said and done.

They cold tune if much better with Apexi S-afc or V-afc you dont need to spend the money and get a AEM EMS or hondata to tune it they are only like $225. also you will get probably more than 5-6 hp but not huge numbers because of the minamal mods you have but you will probably also get better fuel milage and more torque and after having a tunning device a dyno tune will only cost between $100-250 and with your mods it will be on the cheep side. Good luck.
