If you have an LS3 (manual), you really don't need a tune with those mods. If you have an L99 (auto), there is a benefit to getting one now (AFM disable, 93 octane, shift point improvements, etc.) but not because of your mods.

You might want to think about what your goals are for your car long term and work from there. For example, a lot of people get long tube headers with cats as one of their "foundation" mods.

Phastek,LMR, and ARD are all in Houston and can provide a good tune.

neither of those mods will benefit from a tune.
and the tune will 100% void your warranty.

so be very sure you want this.

ARD in town would be my first choice.
Phastek second

As others have said.... you don't need a tune, unless you have an auto and want to tune the tranny shift points.

Save your tune and dyno expense until you add headers or forced induction. Then wait until Matt Sorian comes to town from Florida Speed & Power. He comes to Houston often and does dyno tunes at Phastek (check TEXAS SECTION on Camaro5). Second choice would be LMR.
