Wayyyyy better, do it. Currently runnin BBR tunes but just got my Steeda tubes today. Way better throttle response, more power and better mpgs. Totally worth it and a tuner is needed for future mods. Plus better exhaust note

Yep, even my mild Procal tune is very fun and added significant mpg. Way better throttle response, less throttle hang and the joy of Skip**** gone forever.

When I dyno my car for American muscle to make their tune just for my car would it be best to have the American muscle tune or be stock and they make the tube suitable for my car

If you are going to use dyno info to inform Bama on how to build your tune, make sure you get in touch with them first to find out which data elements they need you to log, just so you don't get done and find out they need something that wasn't part of the standard data log from the dyno run.
