    For a downpipe, yes you need a tune.

    Yes you will need a tune for the downpipe. If you were getting just a CBE and leaving the downpipe stock you would not need a tune.

    I would get a tune regardless. Still can't believe how bad the stock tune really was. That and get a catless uppipe (if you don't have one already).

    No you don't need a accessport you can just get a open source tune meaning you're not using a AP.
