Save your money, both will give minimal gains.
If your heart is set on it at least wait till you have done all your mods first, intake, exhaust, etc.

Personally I'd be taking my money and doing some real mods. Like strike said a tune will do very little.

Thus Far my Vx has a MACE CAI, 69mm Throttle and Manta 2.5 Catback and I bought a MACE re calibrated PCM tune to 98RON and have noticed a significant change. More responsive, tighter gear changes and the fuel economy has improved significantly.
I would definitely recommend doing as many mods as you can before you get a tune though.
Most minor mods can be achieved without re-tuning. But its definitely nice for getting that bit more out of your mods.

Thanks guys for the feed back!, I'm getting a xforce cat back system put on in the coming weeks as well any other recommended exhausts? Just going with it as most people reckon it's good, then I would like to do something to the manifold but that's about all I know you can really do to the sv6 sidi engine as I heard you can't put different headers on them, any other mods people know of please let me know as I will leave getting a tune until after all main mods have even installed also will be putting in a XYZ coil cover kit and big brakes setup
