Tune for an 09 G8 GT

Question

Hello to everyone in the form, I have a question that I was hoping someone can answer for me. I recently just purchased some parts for my G8, and I was wondering what kind of tune is needed or be preferred for better performance and overall drivability. The parts I purchased are Kooks Long tube headers 1 7/8, along with their 3inch exhaust system with no cats at all, followed by a 3.5 quad tip finish. I have an AFE CAI. Everything else is about stock. I was wondering if remote tune or a dyno tune would be preferred due to the performance parts I purchased. The dyno tune is being done with HP Tuners by a place called " Arizona Elite Motorsports". Every other remote tune kit I looked up are about 500 and up. Which is better?

If you have the money and the facilities at your disposal, a dyno tune is prefered over a remote tune. A skilled facility can adjust MAP settings on the fly based on the previous dyno pull results and fine tune your air/fuel ratio for optimum performance across the RPM range as well as make sure your oil pressure, o2 sensors, and other parameters are not out of whack. It will cost you more that a remote tune but it is hard to argue with the results.
