I can't tell you for sure because I've never owned a tuner. I plan on doing a dyno tune when I get all the bolt ons I can get

You'll feel a difference. I have a Bama tune with just basic bolt ons and it definitely made a difference

I have an auto trans with only a aftermarket CAI and Borla mufflers and a tuner improved throttle response significantly.
