Porting heads = New tunes?

I'm going to have a guy do some mild porting and manifold matching while my heads are getting magnafluxed and decked. I'll still have stock injectors and turbo.

Would I need an update to my SCT custom tunes? I don't know much about turbo tuning, but I've read dry spinning is tricky to avoid.

Thoughts?

I dont see why you would have to get a new tune

No, there's not going to be a huge change in airflow so your current tunes will be fine.
