you dont NEED to get a dyno tune, the computer will teach itself but if you have the uncontrollable urge to spend money then you can get it dyno tuned for maybe 1 more kw :roll:

Most big cams will give you a lumpy idle.

Engine needs vaccuum to idle.

why would you need a dyno tune to adjust your idle? the dyno tune would be more for the higher rev range were to adjust your idle you adjust the idle screw.
as said before unless your running aftermarket ECU or chip or something there isn't anything else they can adjust it's all set only the factory ECu can minor adjust itself. except for like BA/BF were they can be flash tuned.
