    bugeye vs tuned gt mustang

    Finally got my tbe installed and now waiting on my injectors (850cc) on come so I can install my vf and tune.

    I'm a lil impatient so I went to the track with a friend of mine. He has a 99 mustang GT with gears,full catless exhaust,pulley, and a tune. And my mods are in my sig with now full tbe and sti tmic. He ran a 13.6 and I ran a 13.5 with no tune... OUCH on a v8. I didn't launch hard but still had a 1.9 60' and stared at his headlights the whole way down. Looking fwd to a tune and more boooost

    It will explain why yes a tune would benefit his car.. Yes he would see an increase in power... He needs one yes but he does not require one...

    How does it feel when the turbo has spooled, instant throw back or gradual increase in power similar to a N/A motor?


    I know I would have way more power with a tune but no point to tune twice. I already have a vf43 sitting at my house just waiting on injectors to get here and I've decided to go with Utec, highly recommended by ANDREWTECH automotive and tuner Jermaine at turbo xs.

    02-03 don't require a tune with a turbo back. it would still be wise to get one asap.

    Insane is all i can say. It feels like a turbocharged car should. 1st & 2nd gear pull so hard. I was Stage2 for a few months, and this was a huge increase. I also have a STi TMIC, injectors and 255lph pump with a protune.
