    Still confused about Tuning (really a n00b)

    Im ready to start investing in some parts but im so confused about the tuning aspect. I want to get a down,up-pipe, exhaust, and a Turbo of some type in the next few days but I am so confused about the tuning. I like the idea of the TurboXS system but not to sure about there exhaust.

    Heres the setup I want tell me what is entailed or need and how hard or expensive the tuning will be. Thanks for the help

    Blitz SUS-Kit
    Godspeed Up-pipe
    Godspeed Downpipe
    Exhaust (not sure yet maybe HKS)
    HKS SSQV
    Supra TT Pump
    STi Injectors
    IHI VF (22,23,30 not sure what the most power I can get besides going with the PE series?)
    Blitz or GReddy FMIC

    Can I just slap these all on or will that be harmful?

    Thanks,
    -Matt

    Just snag yourself a UTEC and you'll have many base maps to work with. Obvioulsy just run it a bit on the rich side until you can get to a dyno to fine tune it all. Biggest VF is a VF22 but still pales in comparison to a PE turbo and is not as reliable. Your list of mods is basically my Stage II+ package only without the PE turbo.

    E-mail me for pricing as it varies a bit depending on individual needs and wants. Yes the packages come with a Unichip or UTEC already tuned with a base map. It may require some minor adjustment which I can do here in Michigan. It runs safely though.

    I would say if you don't know how to tune your car (not that I'm an expert either) you should go with a "kit". Like Godspeed, Vishnu, Cobb, TXS. You will be much happier and make as much power as you have money.

    Try going to http://www.vishnutuning.com
    They have several stages, and brief explanations of what each component should do. Good Luck with tuning!
