Trifecta tune plus mods

I've read many different things about this tune. Some say they love it, some say it's only worth it with certain mods.. What exactly does it do?
Take a look at my mods below, and let me know what you think. Is it worth it with the current mods I have?

From the graphs I have seen, it looks like trifecta has the same gains plus a fraction of the cost. I may be wrong, but the efi live was like 900 plus vin license for 100. I could get it tuned at a local dyno for about 500-600 so since I am not very familiar with these tunes, why spend almost a grand for efi?

HP Tuners and EFI aren't tunes. They're tuning software with which you can tune your car. I would invest the money to go get a dyno tune. Go get it done right once. The companies that do dyno tuning use programs like EFI Live and HP Tuners

I planned on getting a Cold air inductions but since I live in arizona and it's always a million degrees outside Would it really make that big of a difference for $400 or so? And yeah I'll probably get a dyno tune when I get the extra cash to blow

This^ plus if you plan on fi or any mod in the future. Better to dyno tune than mail order. Cuts time and effort. Its well worth the extra if they had it for the llt this would be the way I would go. I have trifecta and want bash them but the turn around time can be quite long you can search and see that people have waited weeks to hear back about their datalogs. Now just image that if you mod at a steady pace and want to check to see if everything is running smooth be prepared to wait on your reply.
