I can go any time after 8:30am on Friday.

A few questions:
Before I ask them, I have an 06 FXT with a Cobb TBE, AP, Perrin pulley, APS top mount, and Walbro 255 pump. (update) I will have a VF39 mounted up for the tuning.

I have a Borla header. I was going to get it thermally coated (moreso than that paper thin paint they use) but before I do that, I was wondering if it would be worthwhile to install with only a VF39 turbo? I've read that the 2.5L benefits from this header up top and that with good tuning it can become about as laggy as the stock manifolds and not a slug when just bolting them on. Should I get it installed or sell it off for something better for my combination?

I also have one of the Perrin EBCS things and it has two ways to install it. The way they recommend is supposedly faster reacting than the usual bleed method. Should I install this thing or should I sell it off as well for something better suited for my combination?

My first map will be for 93 pump gas. I was going to bring in 5 gallons of 104 octane to mix with it for a 50/50 mix. Will there be enough time to get two maps for my AP done in one hour's time?

I have the stock BOV mounted right now but have a TXS BOV (recirculating) that is adjustable with spacers (washers). Will the tune I'm getting require the TXS BOV or will the stock one hold it?

With the parts listed, is there any other bolt-on part I should consider prior to the tuning (CAI, TGV delete, etc) that would make a significant difference?

Thanks in advance, Jarrad. I look forward to meeting you and learning some things. Thanks for coming down to Houston.
Eric

i want to know how much it would be to upload Version 5.X firmware onto my UTEC and just transfer over maps (and make slight adjustments as needed). I'm still driving with that OL/CL fuel hesitation.

I think the utech reflash is pretty straight-forward

I would prefer Saturday slot so I can leave on Friday after work to Houston instead of taking vacation on Fri (I'm running low). So if anyone would like to swap, please PM me.

Question to Jarad:
Cobb AP Stg 2 STi Off The Shelf Map - No Street Tuner Software.
No poossy Cusco DP, HKS Carbon Ti, Samco MAF hose, Samco Turbo Inlet hose, & APS CAI 65mm Red Wrinkle.
Purpose of use: Road Course Track Days, twisties drive, weekend drive, some traffic commute. I just need it to be fine tuned for additional parts that I have to be safe for track days use.
Do I really need one step colder plug as I just changed my plugs to OEM @ 30K miles (I have 35K miles)
Do I get the 91 octane maps and other maps just like Cobb provides?

Thanks,
David

You do not HAVE to run one step colder plugs. I would run these for now and then next time put in the colder plug.

When you get tuned by me you will get a set of maps. I will tune you for your main fuel, and then I adapt the map to 91 octane. I also will make a valet mode, low boost and an antitheft maps. If you want to completely optimize your setup to run on 91 octane then we would need to fill the tank with 91 and spend more time on the dyno. The 91 maps are safe to run on 91, but not going to make 100% of the potential power on 91.

i'll take the 1130 on friday.

Jarrad, should I get a boost controller on top of the AP for my setup. I'm not sure if I need it, I will be getting a OTS map for my vf23 with supporting mods, and have you tweak them on the tune day. Also, any word on when I should get the AP?

We got in APs today. It will take us a day to get them loaded and sent out, but I think yours came in today.

I like aftermarket boost controllers, well, I like the TurboXS DTEC BC Pro. We used to use the AVC-R, but the DTEC is much better so I prefer it now although the AVC-R is a good second choice. You do not have to have one with your setup, but it will make the car a bit faster. There are no issues with it not playing well with your AP in case you were wondering that.

Final two need to battle it out now. I did my best to accomodate everyone...I apologize if the times aren't 100% where you'd like to be. Feel free to PM eachother if you'd like to change slots. I'm not going to lock this down until the weekend.

Barry/McRee have put up funds for EL to buy refreshments for us all. I'll likely be there doing some grilling and stuff as well. So I guess we can expect to see Jeff there now, huh?

There are other boost controllers I prefer, but you do not need to change yours as long as you run that turbo. If you decide to go to a larger turbo you will get more benifits from a more advanced boost controller, but for now I suspect the price is not worth it.

Jarrad, please see post #2.

In addition, if you think a range colder plug would help I will get those in as well.

Personally I prefer the stock air box at stage 2 power levels. If you want to send me a money order for being such a pleasant person I think it would go a long way toward getting you a better tune
