Getting setup is easy enough. If you are like me and have no tuning concepts then save your time and money, and spend the time to learn before modifying the ecu options.

I'd say your list works, but definitely start with a pro tune, then read the rom, then start logging. I started a month ago on the self education, and I'm planning another 10 or 11 months before I flash my second tune (first was just to increase rev limit and test the whole process).

Tbh Iíd rather not tune myself! Learning it and doing it is something I would find myself enjoying, however, I definitely donít have money for mistakes. I was thinking having someone tune it either by E-tune, (preferably...due to time and some amount of money saved) or take it somewhere, where they can tune it.?
With wiring already in place and ecu just needing to be plugged in.?
