Tune or not to tune?

Ok family, give me some advice.... I've read till I've gone cross eyed! I have an LLT motor with a CAI brand intake and ported throttle body. Soon to have an Iceolator and catch can on it... My question is with the Ice, intake and TB on it, should I get it tuned? Recommended or necessary? And if so, then who from?

I will add that it seems like the car loads up when I punch it and sometimes doesn't seem to have the power it had before the TB and intake. Maybe it's in my head. I love the sound of it, but find myself not feeling the power with the sound it produces! Getting the upper induction cleaning tomorrow morning, so hopefully that will help some!

What do you think?

Totally up to you.
You could live without a tune with your mods.

But if it was my car I'd tune it. That's just me.

My car is almost 4 years old and it was tuned right after purchasing it. I've been very lucky and I've haven't had any tranny/engine issues that haven't been covered under warranty.
I've also been very upfront with the dealership that my car is tuned.

I just had my pulleys and belts replaced under warranty just last week.

Tune it. Makes the car a completely different animal.
