Where a protune may come down the road--Is there really no benefit, or even a waste to upgrade the tmic just to improve reliability as opposed to upgrading to "push the car to the limits"?
Would the improved function of the PW TMIC not allow for (hypothetically, at least) more longevity for the motor at even sustained stage 1 power?
