Wait to Tune?
 
I'm looking to get a tune pretty soon but I am not sure if I should wait or not. My current mods are:

K&N 63 series CAI
Flowmaster AM Thunder Axle Back
VMAX Black Ice-Olator
VMAX Ported Throttle Body

In the future I am going I add BBK Long Tube Headers and most likely the ZEX nitrous kit. I know Trifecta charges another $100 for major mods. I don't think they would charge me for the LT headers but I guessing nitrous is a major mod. Should I wait and do my tune last or could I do it next and not be charged again?

No they don't charge for nitrous either. It's just a matter of pulling a little bit of timing. I would honestly wait it out on a tune but it's up to you. If you're an auto, it'll feel better with firmer shifts and better shift points but don't expect a any noticeable power increases

Well if it wouldn't be any extra what would be your reason for waiting?

get headers, then get a tune. thats what i am doing. im probably gonna run without a tune for a month or so. If you live in houston then you can get MAtt at FSP to do a IPF tune for you. I would go with them because i feel from all the data i have seen, that IPF gives the best gains

The gains don't justify the cost. The only reason I see for a tune is to remove the CEL. I'm strictly speaking about the Trifecta tune. I've never tried the IPF but might if I have nothing else to spend on.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd do as much bolt-ons as possible, then headers, and then tune if you need the CEL gone. If not, I wouldn't even tune at all. I'd just spend the money on something else.
