Hand held tuner or dyno tune...

I know that this is something more for the Camaro forums however, the Cortex tuner seems to be the hand held tuner of choice for G8 owners so I'll ask here also.

I have a 2010 2SS Camaro with CAI, headers, catback exhaust, and possibly hi flow cats (possibly because the guy I bought it off of was slightly vague on exhaust upgrade details). So my question is, would it be better to just get a dyno tune or would a hand held tuner like a cortex do the job nice enough?

2009 G8 GT | Panther Black Metallic | Onyx/Red | Roof | Roto-fab CAI ...R.I.P...
2010 Camaro SS/RS | Aqua Blue Metallic #829 of 3903 | Silver Stripes | Stock...ish

In pursuit of GXP M6 eventually...

Diablosport tuner with lew tune or dyno tune
I'm going to go out on a limb and say the lew tune is within 90% of a dyno tune.

All these hand held tuners are set for every car there is, not your specific car. Plus they will typically make your car run lean. Dyno tune is the way to go plus with a dyno tune you will see a lot more gains.
