The performance gain is doubled when you put the stickers on at an angle.

I have a tuner, I didn't see any performance gain really, but I was able to reprogram my computer to accommodate my larger tires and regearing.

Did your tuner allow your to change shift points if its auto? That could be useful if you were to take it to a drag strip or race track for shits and giggles

How much was it? 500+-?

OP for max horsepower I'd say save around 20k and put a massive turbo on the engine, but who needs to be realistic?
