Default Utec Ems Good Idea? Bad Idea?

HEY I AM ABOUT TO BUY SOMETHING FOR MY CAR. AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO GET FIRST. BUT I'M THINKING ABOUT PUTTING A FEW THINGS OFF (LIKE CF TRIM AND HOOD) FOR THE TURBO XS UTEC EMS SYSTEM.

IMO... it depends on what you want to do.. SOME form of EMS outright is key, but some lend themselves more to long term modifying (UTEC), vs. inconveniences everytime you change stuff (Flashes).

In the end... it's ALL about who tunes it.

Phase 1: Look to the left of your keyboard. There is a key there labeled Caps Lock. Push it once to turn it off.

Phase 2: The UTEC is a great product but you will get the most bang for your buck when you have some other power mods and plan on doing some tuning yourself or changing your setup as you go. If, for example, you are only going to Stage 2 power levels and then stopping, and don't want to know or learn anything about tuning, get a reflash.

ALLright HEy My BUttoNS goiING Hay WIRe
I have a up pipe and a down pipe. Should I get the UTEC to manage the engine to work these mods the best.
And can the UTEC control boost of the turbo as well?
