Hey guys I don't know much about the mechanics of cars but is it worth me getting my VY Dyno tuned ? If it is what can I expect to gain ? thanks for any help.

How long is a piece of string?

Without mods, no real point at all

Without any mods you will gain power and potentially improve fuel consumption, with mods you will gain more power. Simples.

At least get an exhaust to get some sound out of the LS1 then get a tune if you really want or just leave as is.

Thanks thats what I thought.
Hi Jayozi,
As 'crewchief' said: even on a stock motor you will find gains with a Tune. Although modifications in conjunction with a tune will unlock even more gains.
You can expect an increase in Horsepower, an improvement in torque, better fuel economy and even a more responsive throttle.

A tune = money well spent!

If you are getting it Dyno tuned, at least get a Catback and Intake done beforehand.

More power, better economy. Worth every cent.

If I was going to It over again I`d get one of these HP tuners/vcm suites or EFI lives flash scan. If you are computer literate that is, also there is plenty of help on the manufactures website including forums too.
