A question for the tuners

I have a 2000 7.3 F350 dualie w/ 125000 miles. I had Troyer Performance do custom tow/mileage/performance tunes for my bone stock truck about 5 years ago. I am using an older SCT Excalibrator 2. I have just installed a Ford AIS intake with the doodad and fender well opening mods as well as Diamond Eye 4" turbo back exhaust. Now, for my questions:
1. Would it be worthwhile to have new tunes written to take advantage of these modest performance modifications?
2. Would it be practical to have the tunes written for the Excalibrator I already have?
3. Would there be any advantage to buy a current model tuner with the tunes loaded on it rather than using the Escalibrator?
Thanks for any thoughts.

Im no tuner but I can tell you with the new mods, there is no need for new tunes. If you are currently happy, I would leave it be.

The only time you would really need the tunes changed would be for a bigger turbo, bigger injectors, big oil, etc.
