A tune is possibly the single greatest HP benefit, besides boost, that you can do.

If you have an auto you will notice a tremendous difference because the tuner lets you change your shift points. Not as much for a manual but like they said you get more gains out of what mods you do have. And the tune can always change when you get new mods

Each tune is made for your car. For example, American Muscle's tunes have 3 different gas tunes, depending on which octane your tank is full of. For example if your put the lowest grade which is 87? then it is more gas saver. If you put in the highest 93? then it is going to have the most gains and firmest shifting basically a race mode.
