Default When do i tune?

Im going to be putting a few things on my car very soon and was wondering when i should or when i have to tune. i have an 03 wrx with stg 2 right now but want to do a protune with a few maps. i will be putting on new injectors, new fuel pump, new intercooler, alcohol injection, downpipe and blow off valve (that i remember). when do i have to tune? will i mess things up if i put say the injectors and fuel pump on without a tune or does it matter? basically i want to know if i can put things on and get them out of the way before i tune. i will have to drive it to the shop so i dont know if i can put everything on before and drive it or if i will mess with the computer too much with all of this. so my question is, when do i tune?

Also a turbo will be added...16g or bigger, but it is my daily driver so im thinkin big 16g...

the injectors must be tuned for. The rest of the things need to be tuned for in order to get full potentional.

i wouldn't drive it with the bigger injectors, maybe your tuner can send you a generic map to get you to "limp" to the shop.

You would end up washing the cylinders. Get tuned when you get a bigger turbo.
