tuner versus different CAI

Okay on my superchips tuner I see alot of different tunes available for different CAI. Thing is some of these cost 300 and up for the CAI which I think is a bit much, These tunes seem to promise alot of power ~25 hp. If I go with say a spectre cold air intake and the CAI tune from the Superchips Flashpaq will I still get reasonable gains? I am running 91 octane tune plus Magnaflow cat back exhaust. Thanks.

You'll get some gains, but probably not feel it in the seat of the pants butt dyno. My first performance mod was a Vararam intake and I custom tuned it with HP Tuners. It's been a while, but if I remember corretly, I saw about a 0.2 sec improvement in the quarter mile, but the car didn't really feel faster to me contrary to the quarter mile data. So depending on how well your Superchips CAI tune reflects the intake that you go with, your results might vary.
