Technically, you only actually need the down pipe to go stage 2.

But once u upgrade your downpipe and get a turbo back, ur now stage 2 and your access port will be needed. Or u can skip the access port and get a pro tune.

Your access port allows u to change the ecu to compensate for the higher hp, without having to get a pro tune. In my opinion, an access port is good if u plan on modding slowly, which a pro tune will be useless because once u add another power mod, ur gna most likely need another pro tune. To save money, keep your access port, get a protube when you're done with all your power mods.

What I did was intake, access port, sways and endlinks, and springs. By far, suspension mods makes me so happy and makes the car that much more enjoyable to drive.
Stage 1 all depends on the person, you can call it wtv you want to! I know for Lachute performance, a stage one is a down pipe, a stage 1 flash, and a new air filter. Like I said, you can call it wtv you want lol

Whole lotta assuming going on in this thread. OP never did tell us what he drives so for all we know, we're telling him to flash his Yugo with an Accessport stage one map.

Number one thing for newbies to remember: Help us to help you. Fill out your profile and give us as much information as you can about the problem you're facing or the question you have. Telling us which car you drive is important in this case, don't ya think?

Close, but not quite correct.

EBCS = Electronic Boost Control Solenoid

An OTS map is more of a general tune for example and a pro tune is more of a tailored tune for your car exactly and how it behaves and its health so you can say you would see a difference but not too significant.

If you install a CAI on that model year without a tune you'll be buying a new engine.

Read the stickies.

Any change in air flow should be tuned to accommodate the change.

You don't need a custom tune for a catback and intake, you could use Cobb's Stage 1 + AEM cai map, but you'll make more power on a custom tune and it will be tailored to your car so it will potentially be safer as well. I would recommend Torqued Performance for your Stage 1 + AEM cai map since you don't have to buy a $500 AccessPort. Or you could go to a local tuner and get a custom tune on a dyno.
