Is a custom tune noticeably better?

I run a tune off of accesstuners that I've tweaked slightly on open loop fueling. My ltft's are +- 1.0. Will I tell a difference with a custom tune?

To be honest you should ditch the cobb and pick up a Flashpro and get it tuned. You will notice a world of difference..

I just can't justify the cost of switching to FP for my work car. I'm just wondering if a custom tune(ap) will net me anything powerwise/economy wise over my current tune.

Yes, if that is your option a custom tune will net you performance and economy.

Best regards,
