Depending how far off your current tune is and the knowledge of the dyno owner/operator ..........I would say yes it is worth every penny.

You would not be disappointed, bark the tires more often, hold you down in the seat harder too mention a couple . .

Saying 450 hp and knowing/feeling are two real different experiences ..

Where did you get the 450 hp number ?

I've known lots of guys with "high horsepower" cars that couldn't get out of their own way.

Take it to a dyno at least once to get a proper tune-up and get the real numbers.
