Icon5 Dyno tuning in a few weeks. Should I?

I'm going to get the 3.0 dyno tuned in a few weeks and wanted to know if it would be worth it to do anymore mods if worth while.

So far I have a K&N filter, headers, flowmaster muffler, UD pullies.

Should I invest in rockers, MAF, ect...??

Thanks,
Bob

Rockers on the 3.slow help turn it into a 3.go.. so yeah, do those if you can!

MAF woudl be nice, the ones Underdog sells are perfect and lots wider.. PLUS it requires a custom tune.. so do that before you spend the $$ on a tune now =)

Whatever you plan to do, do it before you dyno tune it, so you can get the most out of it.

Ehh...rockers if you can. But other then that, take out the Slomaster and put some better muffler in...which anything is better.

Also...dyno exactly how you will be on the street...don't remove headlights, put ice anywhere, etc...etc...we all know the tricks, but it does nothing for you on the street.

What kind of dyno is it...Mustang or DynoJet?
