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
Exhaust (not sure yet maybe HKS)
Supra TT Pump
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?

Thats my problem I dont know what to do...
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.
What your prices on your stage'd kits and do they come tuned?
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.
