I do not have a CAI. I have the Perrin inlet tube with a Blitz filter in the stock airbox. There is really no benefit to a CAI on these cars, especially the 2017+ models. I have had 2 different CAI's on the dyno between my FRS and my BRZ (Perrin CAI and Grimspeed).

My tuner (Delicious tuning) is in California (I am in Colorado). They do not need to be local at all. There is also really no concept of stages with ECUtek. You get a baseline tune from the tuner, flash the car, and then datalog some driving. Send that datalog to the tuner (via email) and they send you a revised tune file back. Repeat the datalogging and reflash process until it is "good". No need to even dyno tune if you don't want to.

My current exhaust (Dezod Motorsports) is pretty tame. I have a video of it on my YouTube channel too if you look at more recent videos. I also just installed a JDL Ultra quiet front pipe and that helped tone things down even more and has a better sound, I think.

Good luck!
