    Sorry if this is a noob question but I have been hearing from alot of people I would benefit a ton from a protune.

    Would getting a protune make my accessport worthless at that point? Or would they load it to my accessport so that I can still uninstall and stuff like that if I change stuff up? I guess I dont know why I would need an accessport anymore if I get a protune.

    I know this wouldn't net much gain without a tune...but it has to be much more efficient. And man they look gorgeous on top of the engine bay

    It's not much help, but I'm just thinking out loud.
    ^agreed. A new Top Mount IC would be nice. Not much else you can do if you are already Stage 2. I would go with a Perrin TMI though.

    Protune is meant specifically for your car where as the ap tune are made for all cars. You would have a safer afr more power and tq and probably a little more boost. The ap won't be useless because you can still datalog with it and check error codes and everything else you do with it.

    There are a bunch of things you could do next.. What the other guys have been saying is basically what i would Performance wise a upgraded intercooler would not be a bad option (top mount is easy and there is really need for multiple). same with break mods , and they really dont have to be crazy to make a difference. Also would have to say a sway bar would be a great addition to your suspension. A pro tune would really also make a huge difference. If your keeping the stock turbo do an intercooler and pro tune for power, and breaks and a sway bar for easy handling mods

    I may have missed these if mentioned, but what about new shifter bushings? And possibly a short throw shifter. And maybe an STI tranny mount, and rear differential bushings...there's a lot to upgrade with the suspension and drivetrain. This could help make better use of the power you already have by holding the road more efficiently.

    I don't know the best upgrades, but others can chime in. You've got decent power, now upgrade its handling. I'm sure you won't regret it.

    If you must need more power then that just save up for an engine build.

    I would go with swaybars end links engine mount upgrades etc

    Yuck eric is not really the ideal tuner for our cars I've heard a lot of horror stories about him giving people dangerous maps.


    on to the OP turbo upgrade is your best option for "more power"

    16g-18g-20g < some turbos you might consider.

    Like others have said, some handeling upgrades would be beneficial. Sway bars for the front and rear, coilovers, better tires, s/s brake lines, better brake pads, the list can go on and on. But if you really want to just make more power you could always go with an external wastegate setup plus supporting mods. EL headers, uppipe for Ewg, 38mm wastegate, better tmic, bigger injectors, bigger fuel pump, ebcs, and a protune will give you a good bit more hp even with the stock turbo.
