Moving from texas to Washington state, needa tune?

So the climate and air pressure are way different in Washington compared to Texas. Someone mentioned I should get it tuned because of the difference in climate and what not. Is this true?

the car can generally compensate very good but you can get a dyno run for cheap vs paying for a new tune just to check it out, then tune there if needed.

I would say it depends on how many and what mods you have done

Only Mods so far is CAI. Got some suspension work but that's not a factor. Engine is mostly stock except spark plugs.

I would say you'd be ok without a re tune or new dyno tune. The computer should be able to make the necessary changes. Car may feel a bit more sluggish depending on elevation change. I went from VA to el paso tx and had no tune issues.
