Dyno tuning??

I have a 2014 LS, and not putting too too much on it but I recently installed an exhaust, CAI, and putting in a throttle body spacer. Figure I need to get the car tuned. Any recommendations of where to go/where to order from? Im in the NJ area. I also noticed Phastek sells tuning equipment on their website, anyone have experience with that? Thank you.

What kind of exhaust? Headers or just cat backs? Did you remove cats?
Is the car stock otherwise?
Has it ever been tuned before or is it a stock tune?
What kind of CAI? same size as stock or a big RPM 5"?
Whats the throttle body spacer for?
This will all determine if your REALLY need a tune. The fuel trims will do a lot to compensate for small changes, but if you're changing big airflow like headers, then a tune would benefit you. Be aware that most tuners will only adjust your MAF and a few other things and kick you out the door for the $600. Don't expect a comprehensive all out thorough tune.

not everyone can tune the V6. no matter your mods, if you have an auto trans a tune is 100% worth it for the trans tune alone.

you can try east coast supercharging in NJ.

Its a cat back from pypes, with a cold air inductions intake with just the standard fit. The spacer is silver bullet I have to check the size.

Gonna have to agree with the trans tuning part. When the dealer replaced my TC under warranty they mentioned an adjustment to the shift points while they were in there.
VERY noticeable and i can only imagine what a tune would do.
