I recently picked up an 02 bugeye thats pretty solid shape, 99xxx miles and only upgrades are a turbo back exhaust and Greddy bov. I understand she needs a tune (runs rich, sputters at low rpm's, doesnt accelerate fully correctly) but what im wondering is with the stock EM can I just roll into a dyno shop and can they tune it? or do I need to upgrade to something? I'm pretty strapped on cash considering I just had to move. Any help would be awesome, thanks!
Well first welcome to the site and we are glad to have you here. Secondly, ditch the Greddy BOV and replace it with a stock BPV. That will fix most of your issues. Thirdly, you could go to a shop, but i'd suggest scheduling an appointment first

Very true, well i'll see what happens after getting the stock one put on. With just the exhaust then it should run a lot smoother and less rich? I can tell the turbo spools way to early in rpms than what it should. will that also help that all in one?
