On a car like this, that might not be the best practice. I went through a similar debacle when I got my car. What I did was first, take off the stupid mods (Blow off valve and cold air intake). Then I bought and AccessPort, and discovered the car had a tune on it, though it wasn't a very good one. I messed around with the Cobb OTS stage 2 maps for a while, but was still having issues. At that point I contacted Torqued Performance and started working with Eric on an E-tune.
Right now, I couldn't be happier
. The E-tunes are affordable ($70-150ish + AccessPort) and are specific to YOUR car. If you want to take it even further you can get a Protune from a shop, but that's more money.
$200 for an AccessPort is scary cheap. Keep in mind there are specific models for each generation. You need AP-SUB-003:
If you do buy a used AccessPort, make sure it's UNMARRIED. Otherwise it's garbage.
