Default need your opinions on tuning after header install

I am awaiting a new performance header that i ordered and will install next week when it arrives.
on top of the header i already have an apex-i cat back installed.
a friend of mine suggested that after i install the header i should have the car tuned.
What to you guys think?

Not worth it in my opinion as those don't make much of a horsepower gain.

Get a cam and then it will be worth it.

Does skunk2 make cams for a f22? They make decent cams just didn't think they did for that application.

But bisimoto is the king of the f22 world.

Just had a thought and wanted to run it past you,
the new header im installing this week doesnt have a heat shield like the original stock header does and im wondering,

Does that pose an issue to the alternator or any thing else in that area?
I know there is a ac hose that runs across in front of the header but i dont think that will be an issue since i long ago put a (makeshift heat shield) around that hose that consists of a couple layers of tin foil wrapped up pretty with electrical tape

Whats your thoughts?
