I need tuneing advice. My vf39 is on its last leg, it burns a quart of oil about every 500 miles...about once a week. I am replacing the vf39 this weekend with a very slightly used VF48, out of a 2012 sti, along with an upgraded compressor wheel (which is said to flow up to 15% more). If I am to go back to get it re tuned on a dyno, it is going to cost me 500 dollars and a drive from San Diego to Los Angeles (and a full day off of work). There are a few tuners in San Diego that will do a street tune for 250 dollars, just running it down the street. I would save 250 dollars plus a full days work gas and time if I did a local street tune. My question is do I need a complete tune, or can a street tune with minor adustments be fine?
I also plan on installing a grimspeed 3 port solenoid before either tune.
