SCT tuner worth it?

So here are the bolt one so far. K&N CAI, 78ml BBK throttle body, Steeda U/D pulleys, Steeda tri ax shifter, MAC pro chambered mid pipe along with flowmaster series 40 catback and ford racing 4:10 gears.
I know a tuner will correct my speedo but with my car being a manual transmission, what other benefits will a tuner do? Is it worth the $400,00. Just deciding if I should pull the trigger and get one this week.

The benifit is the tuner will tune you car for your mods which results in more hp, so yes the tuner is worth it!

I think it's a 100% worth it, you really get every bit of your mods with your ECU tuned for them.

+1^these guys

Plus with American Muscle, you'll get tunes for life so you'll be set for retuning with any future mods. Along with adjusting your speedo for gears, it also has settings adjustable for revolutions per mile. This is for correcting for different size tires.

Don't ever question that cause I did the same thing and then I got one and I wish it would've been the first mod. Yes, very very much worth it!!

A tuner will bring all those mods together, and make the vest out of those mods!.. For me a tuner should be the first mod!..

Having a tuner with mods is like night & day....it's a must have. You don't think you feel the difference? You do feel the extra HP and response.

FYI

When you receive your tuner do not be in a rush! Follow the instructions it comes with. It will tell you to first hook it up to your CPU and download software and make sure it is up to date. Then follow the instructions for tuning your car. I'm sure you have probably watched the video already.

Have fun with it
