    Theoretically, your car should still be reliable.

    In theory yes. But every car responds differently to an OTS map. Important thing is to data log and review the results. Cobb has good notes online about what to look for. You can also contact Cobb directly if you have questions or concerns about your logs.

    Stage 1 will be relatively safe, but honestly there's so many variables involved. If you're worried about maintaining 100% reliability, I would keep the car stock for the peace of mind
