Question Getting ready for etune, am I ready?

Hey guys

Just need your inputs before I do/start this... My car is a 07 STi (euro spec) which I bought with broken engine. I have installed new oe long block (EJ257) and while doing so I found out turbo is gone too, so I replaced it with tomei m8265 still one stock air box and has hks headers, up/down pipe and hks silent catback.

Anyway, car has done now 2k miles with this setup (I haven't gone above 3500 rpm or into boost)
Since no tunners in here, that leave me on 1 option, etune. Now I have Tactrix 2.0, innovate LC-1, afr gauge, denso 1000cc injectors, walbro pump and cobb sf+ intake all waiting to be installed.

Now to my few questions, please;
who is good/reliable etuner around here? not looking into crazy power but only looking for a reliable tune at 19 psi. Also is it possible to have a tune with boost spike prevention (say a safe cut off if boost hit 21 psi???)

Finally, do I have everything I need in order to pull/save my tunes?

best regards

Alright, a member on here named Dux10 is an incredible e-tuner. There is numerous positive reviews on him. I have personally adopted him as my sole tuner, hes very professional and helpful. Its a shame you havent been tuned as of yet. If i was you id email him YESTERDAY to avoid serious and potentially catastrophic engine damage. It sounds like you have everything you need for a great quality etune. Happy boosting!

It sounds like you have a decent setup ready to go. And it looks like you have everything you would need.

Do you have any experience with ECU Flash or Rom Raider?

EDIT: op, clear out your inbox! lol
