Will a ported throttle body factor into a dyno tune at all?

I know a tune isn't needed for a Vmax ported TB by itself, but I'm installing my CAI intake/apex scoop as soon as it's delivered (ordered from apex an hour ago ) and plan on having the car dyno tuned by race proven motorsports soon thereafter. I'm also interested in a ported throttle body to help the throttle response... my question is will a ported throttle body be factored into a dyno tune in any way? Should I wait until I get the ported TB installed to get the tune, or will it not affect a dyno tune whatsoever? Thanks!

Thanks for your order. A tune is not needed for that set of upgrades but if you are going to go ahead and do one it behooves you to have as much done as possible before you take it to the tuner. One thing you do need to check out with all that extra air flow is your MAF sensor.

Thanks Chase, I already checked and my MAF says K19 so I'm good to go. I know a tune is not NEEDED for a CAI intake/ported TB, but is there any gain to be had with a tune (from a reputable Chevy tuner... wants $350 for a dyno tune) on an LS3 after putting on the intake/TB? Or would a tune after the intake/TB really only benefit the L99 and not the LS3? With experience with my previous cars, I've always thought of an intake/tune as a normal combination, but if there is nothing (or very little) to be gained on the LS3 I don't think I'll bother. Thanks!

It should not make much difference, but I'd recommend getting it installed before the tune.

Best regards,
