    No, and no. 1) A MBC REQUIRES a protune. 2) A turbo timer is not needed, unless you track your car. Even then, it's debatable.

    Are you happy with your suspension? Steering? Shifting? I only ask this because there are great aftermarket parts out there to help in these areas of weakness as well.

    Good call on the short throw. As for the suspension, good sway bars and endlinks do wonders for the handling without lowering the car. I love my suspension now. Here's what I've done to my '11 so far...
    Engine/Transmission mods:
    Cobb AP - Stage 2+ Cobb SF intake, Cobb DP and heat shield, Kartboy aluminum crank pulley, STI Trans Mount, Kartboy Pitch Stop Mount, Sti SS w/ Kartboy F/R shifter bushings
    Suspension/Wheels mods:
    Eibach Sways (25F/22R), Kartboy Endlinks, Epic lowering springs, Kartboy rear subframe inserts
    Interior/Exterior/Accessories:
    STI front lip, SMY cluster w/ AEM digital boost and OP gauges, Cobb knob, OEM footwell illumination (red), Perrin shorty antenna, 30 tint, OEM all-weather mats

    get a shop to tune your car. Get more results. I personally do not like accessports
