    I have a wide band and a boost gauge. As far as tuning I'm using SCT pro package and an xCal3 to flash it. When tuning a n/a car for boost it's pretty much just telling the ecu to add (more) Y fuel at X rpm. Along with recalibrating the MAF for the injectors and playing with a few stock settings. I'll probably end up having the tuner start the tune and I'll finish it. I've never tuned a turbo car so I need a basic layout before I start messing with things lol.

    While what you say is true, installing an ebay kit air filter with a bigger pipe is hardly a solution. Modifications are not worth it without a legitimate diagnostic and tuning solution.
    I can personally say that I've learnt that lesson the hard way. When you're building a car, taking shortcuts will cost you more money 80% of the time.

    May I say bad ass? I love the idea of a domestic beating imports in their own game.
