    I say wait until it's broken in before you tune anything. After the internals start settling in, you can drive it a bit harder & see if you get predictable, consistent results. When it's performing consistently, THEN start tuning...then again, what do I know? i'm a cameltoe hunter.

    i plan on getting a tune when i have about 5k miles on the car (LONGGG TIME FROM NOW) the base map i have on the utec works fine right now but i would really like to know the AFRs instead of seeing RICH on the datalog. im still thinking if i should go with a reflash like cobb AP or ECUtek or just keep the UTEC. i know the UTEC is good at making power but its not so great with drivability as where the reflashes are smoother and is a bit easier to drive everyday. dunno.. i kinda like the utec cas i can always fine tune the map if the car knocks or something as where the AP or ECUtek i would have to bring it to the tuner to have the map tweaked a bit
