Do you mean an ECU tune? There is no reflash for our cars.

I'd say get a jpipe. You have intake, exhaust and a test pipe. Get the jpipe and love the extra torque bump it gives you low-to-mid range. Just my .02

Tune is possible but make sure you read up on it. Our ECU likes to negate tunes after awhile. There is no reflash...

I don't have a video camera so no vid clips. The jpipe doesn't make the car louder, just deeper.

Honestly for the price, there isn't a better power mod IMO. It's something you can use on a daily basis (low-to-midrange torque).

im pretty sure only a dealership can "flash" an ECU...otherwise its illegal as far as i know. especially if the car is under warranty, by doing this it completely voids it no matter what.

Lol buy an video camera/ borrow it
If anyone is selling a used j-pipe that is in good condition I'll take it

unless your FI or going with more displacement (3.2, 3.5 etc,..) ECU tuning is pointless :/

intake and exhaust mods should always be first on the list.

xlr8 is a nice one, BUT it is not slam friendly and you will destroy it if you are even on a mild drop.

It does if done on the A-pex'i unit, AEM FIC will hold the tune and actually controls sensors instead of tricking them, as Paul explained to me.

Yea, Paul told me the same thing. FIC is fine, NEO is not. But most don't even think of the FIC that's why I told him to read up on it.

J pipe is just slang for the custom headers for our J series motor
s. They connect under the pre cats. There are also pre cat deletes that bolt right up to the block to essentially fullfill the header system but those are harder to find.
