    need some more info

    I just got my tbe delivered to me today, now I need some advice on EM.
    I was thinking about going with the xpt stage 2, but how is that with everyday driving, would I require further tuning after the flash, and would it clear the CEl from having no cat?

    Is there anyone in the NYC area that can fully tune the car with the XPT?

    Should I just hold off on this until I purchase an AP?

    It'll drive fine for daily. The no-cat CEL will be turned off.

    There is no need for an AP with the OpenECU maps.

    Great, thanks for your help bro. One more thing, how detectable is this to the dealer and does it need to be tuned again after the flash?

    the dealer could only detect it by pulling up the map, but I'm not sure if they have that capability.

    a custom tune is almost always greater than a canned map, but you should be more powerful and safe w/ a canned map.

    Do I need any more parts to keep the car running safe? I.E injectors, fuel pump, any special gauges? I would like to purchase everything at the same time and install it all together to get a safe and powerful set up.
