Default Protune scheduled for this Friday... a list of things to do..

It's my first time getting a custom tune so I do not know what to expect. Here are a list of things I have come up with. Feel free to add as necessary.

Things I have done:
1. Engine oil change (as always Mobil1 5W30)
2. New one step colder NGK plugs (Platinum PFR7B)
3. Checked for leak in the system
4. Located key to wheel lugnuts

Are there any other things I should prepare for before this Friday? Here is a list of modifications on my car

02 WRX sedan 5sp
Access Port
VF34, pinks, Walbro, Borla header/catback, Maddad DP, Perrin UP, Perrin crank pulley, STi TMIC, Perrin turboinlet hose (to be installed on Tue-wed).

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you have it covered to me. I would assume they just need your car in good working order to begin with before the tune.

Make sure you car is running good after the install. Make sure there are no exhaust leaks, oil leaks or coolant leaks. These things can cost a lot when you are on dyno time. Make sure you have the AP in your car. Who is tuning you? How much?

well, it's $450 vs. $500 for 2 maps.

I wouldn't consider $450 so cheap...

yeah, socal is a rip for protunes. only a couple shops offer it so they can get away with a higher price. but i've come across several threads from people who have been very happy with Harman, and that it was worth the $500....
