Default Considering moving to UTEC

I'm currently running Accessport stage 2, and am thinking of moving to the UTEC. To be able to tune safely would I need at the bare minimum...the txs tuner also. I wouldn't need the tuner pro right?

I thought about that, but there are so many more utec users out there. With the UTEC, I can at least make a trip to Godspeed or something for a dyno tune.

I'm replacing my exhuast with either a stealth back or QTP cutout.

I'm moving to either a vf34 or vf22 soon.

Same with ecutek...there is nobody by me to tune it.

I do want to tune myself...that's why I was asking if I need the tuner or tuner pro, but I also would like to have an actual tuner within decent range to be able to get a dyno tune.

i think any one should be able to tune with the street tuner. i have it and it seems pretty straight forward. i think ill be able to tune with it. so im sure a decent tuner could.

Now you are making me leaning me towards sticking with what I already have and getting the street tuner. Do you have a WB O2?

If you don't want to tune yourself, get a reflash. You don't have to tune yourself with a UTEC, but the whole point is the U and T stand for "user tunable". I'd skip the Cobb stuff, sell it.

I think I am. I just got my exhaust solution finalized thanks to Oakos. Next is the UTEC + Tuner combo.
