    I think his point was, you gotta clarify when you say something like you did. I know that you probably meant get a protune from a tuner using the AP, but someone stumbling upon this thread with no knowledge of the cars wouldn't.

    You said it in your post, by going open source. What he's saying is why bother buying a $600 AP when you can simply spend $180 for a tactrix cable. Basically you posted like the AP is the only tuning solution.

    The noobness today is strong!!

    I'm assuming you don't know what an open source tune it? If no, read the thread that Will just provided. You do not need an AP or "some sort of tuning device" to flash it. All you need is a laptop and a tactrix cable. If you go for a protune, all you need to do is show up with yourself and your car.

    There are many options for tuning, so telling someone that they need an AP for it is just wrong. Is it an option? Yes. Is it the most expensive option? Yes.

    It's not. Either Motortrend is wrong, or you didn't read the statement correctly.
