Default Aftermarket up-pipe need tune?

Does an afermarket up-pipe NEED a tune after installing? Or can it just simply 'bolt up'?

Given a tune would give it better performance, but will bolting on decrease/damage performance in anyway (ex. intakes)?

I have an 08 and was considering one, but plan on tuning in the summer. I also am aware that the 08's don't necessarily need to change their up-pipes as bad as the older models because it's catless. Just curious if a tune is a must with this. Thanks!

No, and you won't gain much of anything from it either.

Before you do any engine mods decide on engine management. Otherwise stick to suspension until then.

You don't need a tune for an uppipe, but to get the most out of it you would need a tune.

You have to take what buscher says, about gains from his own parts, with a grain of salt. He has a long history of his parts magically producing more power than anyone elses.
Not that he doesnt make good stuff, he does. But his power gain claims are a bit. Well, generous.


But while you will gain a little bit on an 08 WRX, you arent going to gain much, even if you tune for it. Your money is FAR better spent on a turboback, tune, intake, intercooler (because the 08 tmic is miserable)
