thinkin about gettin a tuner

I have searched but cant seem to find much about the tuners (i have a 98 3.0 manual)

I looked into the rouge x3 , i seen you could pick custom tunes(87-91 octane) so do you just basicly plug and go or do you have to do set it up on your own? my impression is you can use these custom tunes or you can create your own
any ways....

do they provide more power thats worth the money?

any with experiance please contact me im really considering a tuner if its worth it

ps dont tell me i need a 5.0 or 4.0 i know already lol

thanks

if you have larger tires than stock then get gears first. but yes a tuner will help you. they are better when you have more things done to your engine though. in my opinion its not worth it in a 3.0
