Go with the No tune version, better Driveability for street use, and will make the same power.

A tune will wake up your car for sure.

I offer our JRE Street Package which consists of CAI SCT Tuner LT headers with Cats and a FREE Custom Tune to make it all ROCK!

You'll want to get your parts installed first, then have your car tuned. It will save you money in the long run. The Vararam is my favorate system because it gives your vehicle the best oppertunity for cold air. Many cold air units still breath air from within the engine bay area and take longer to cool down effecting your Intake Air Temperture table in the tune.

The Vararam system doesnt dyno as high as a couple others, but when you are actually driving, you cant beat the way the system works. I have it on my car

Then with a wideband attached to your hotrod to measure your Air Fuel Ratio, add a custom Tampa Tuning street performance tune to the car, and your off to the races. You'll just love the transmission tune when its married up correctly to your engine.
