Thanks for the feedback
Depends on how far you are going from mechanic a to mechanic b, and how much time will pass between the parts install and the tune, as in an hour drive or two weeks between install and tune.
That's a pretty basic setup, if everything else is stock. Any reputable tuner should be able to send you a limp map so that you can safely drive from point a to b.
Also, from your post I think you are discrediting the AP a bit. You're not limited to just off the shelf maps with an AP. Many tuners can give you a custom tune through your AP. It's all personal and tuner preference, so talk to your tuner
