    buddy that put MPH stage 2.5 and a novi 2000 on his car said i could have his PI stuff free if i want it.. wich would be dope to just pop on the car for fun..


    but i dont really feel like buying a tune as my new engine will be done eventaully.. but i also dont want to cook the stocker as it may have some value in a fox body down the road O0


    figure 60 hp is good for a 150 dollar headswap kit and fluids :banana:

    You don't need a tune if you're running a PI swap with some bolt ons. It wouldn't hurt, but it's not needed.

    I was running untuned for about 6 months, no problems. Got it tuned and picked up 20rwhp.

    I did 3+ years untuned with a PI swap and another few months with P&P heads and Comp 262ah's untuned but it really needed it after the cams went in.

    I got a quote from Fastlane for $500 for a dyno tune with a chip. If you have a chip already or an SCT, they'll do it for $125.
