    Turbo inlet tube and uppipe

    I'm trying to perfect my new '02 Bugeye. Keeping it mostly stock for now. I installed a Grimmspeed uppipe to avoid crap in my turbo. Now I realize I need to fix the fuel lines under the Turbo inlet tube. In order to do this I will be getting a Perrin replacement to avoid intake removal. My question is, would I need to have any tuning done for these two upgrades? I've read that the uppipe does not require tuning and I'm hoping for the same news with the Inlet. Thanks for your help.

    Ideally, the turbo inlet would require a re-tune. However, if you have any method of tuning yourself, MAF scaling is fairly simple (there are numerous Excel worksheets from Cobb that offer quick calculation).

    That's what I was afraid of. I guess it's inevitable that I'll start messing with tuning. I just need to learn how. Should be simple, right lol. Thanks for the quick response.
