Default mail order tune better?

when i had my gears put on the installer was supposed to put me in a 93octane tune, o2 sensor turn off and gear ratio change. I have an SCT3 tuner, think i could get more power if i send my sct off to brenspeed or somewhere?

Dyno is definatly the best bet just because they play around and see what gets the most out of your setup. If you buy a canned tune it may not get the most out of it cause its not like he can see your car run and look at the power curves. im not saying their bad.
