Default What else needed with SMC kit before tune...

Car is 06' STi...

Already has CAI, TBE, Cobb AP, FMIC, fuel pump, colder plugs, & Topspeed protune...

To compliment an SMC Kit, what else might I need to maximize this next Topspeed tune?

After a seach, a manual boost controller semed to be all that I might need.

Is this true?

Thanks- Please assist!

Doug's gonna be mighty pissed when I recommend you install a propane injection kit and you show up for a tune with that heap hooked up. CALL DOUG....he may be busy, but that's part of what you are paying him for....his expertise. Now quit asking us before I talk you into a propane injection kit for your car!

I recommend an Electronic bppst controller unless you plan on running just one map with alky. Otherwise, you'll want to switch boost settings when you swith maps form alk to pump.

I have a DTEC, but I would prefer a controller than I can switch maps with a lot quicker (cough cough....AVC-R)
