They run usually very rich for safety (the stage 2 map I used dipped into the 9's as an example).
With no wideband, the only thing you can tweak really is the boost map along with the ABC/EBC to reach your boost targets, as per the TurboXS manual, and I wouldn't do that before changing the uppipe.
If you have not tuned a car before, you have a LOT of reading to do! Start with the manual, read it 5 times, then also look at Mick the Ginge's tuning guide too, even though it does not cover some of the newer features in the new firmware.
I know that there is alot of work to be done changing the maps. I figured take the timing down across the board cause of the 91 octane. And, the uppipe is going on first and then the TMIC, both of which are in the mail and will be arriving soon. Should I move up the the stage III base maps by TXS?
