Dyno tune?

I have an '88 lx with trickflow heads, Holley systemax intake, e303 cam, all supporting mods etc. I recently ordered a custom grind camshaft from Ed Curtis at flowtech induction and I am wondering how much I would benefit from a dyno tune after the new cam and valvetrain are installed. Thanks for any input.

Any estimates on hp/torque gains? I know that's kinda tough to answer with no base number but just wondering if I'm gonna maybe gain 10-20 hp/torque at the wheels or if it's just gonna be like 5hp or something.

That's going to be hugely variable and impossible to guess.
While you do have a significant amount of mods I don't really see anything that would warrant the expense of a dyno tune.


Will you gain some HP & TQ?
Yes, most likely you will.


Will it be enough to justify the cost?
Unless you have it badly out of tune, I doubt it.


However, the only way to really find out is to have it tuned and see.


Yours is one of those "yes, no, maybe" questions that can only be resolved by taking a chance and having it tuned to really find out the answer.


I'm sorry and I wish I could provide you with a good solid answer, but in these situations it is just impossible.


P.S. Be sure to have that cam degreed in to the proper specifications to get the most out of it.

Yeah I was kind of thinking it might be difficult to guess on. Yeah the cam card has all the necessary info and will be installed and degeed according to those specs for sure. Thank you.
