    You could gain a little stock but not really worth it without some mods - unless you can do it yourself

    Also - been covered many times around here, little search could be fruitful........

    Tuning

    You will gain a little mostly better air fuel ratio, increased MPG, for automatics gain firmer shifts and better acceleration. Most tunes involve mapping the Ve table to get your fuel trims down to + -4% mapping your Maf, timing table, getting your afr corrected to 14.62 for idle and driving and then wide open throttle corrections.

    The list is very long that is not even the half of it and you still have trans parameters to do. But in my opinion your car would run much better even with the basic stuff you have done. I use Hp tuners and tune many with only few mods you have listed Just my opinion.
