100% most definitely will require a tune.

To do the work you'll end up spending around $6000 that's if - and only if - you're doing most of the work yourself such as removing and dismantling/reassembling engine. Fittings rings/bearings yourself etc.

A decent chip & tune should come in around $800.
Yes you can get them for less but I wouldn't mess around with pre-programmed off the shelf.
If you're going to stroke it, it should go on a dyno!

Very importantly you need to match the heads/cam and compression to make it worthwhile.

What series AU is it?

I went down this path recently with my project XH. I even drove a dart stroker motor 6.0L with custom heads/cam and t56 conversion. It was pretty cool car but my Boss 290 is quicker.
(Very different torque curve though :oops: )

If you have 6k you are better off putting it to a decent 302 build with well matched heads/high compression. Lumpy camshaft. Headers, exhaust and tune

Anything under that dollars wise. Forget it.
Headers and exhaust for response and a nice sound is all you could do.
