You shouldn't even be driving it now with the mods that are on it if it's not already tuned for them. Bury the keys in your backyard if you have to and hope you haven't caused any problem with how far you've already driven. Aftermarket fuel rails alone with throw off your fueling and REQUIRE a custom tune. The turbo needs a custom tune as well. Is that your complete mod list? I ask because there are other parts for a turbo upgrade that are also required that are not on your list. If that list is all you have and you can't afford an tune, then you need to fine a new stock turbo and a new stock fuel rail before you turn the car on again.

Assuming you have all the parts you need for the upgrade, you can get a road tune for those mods, but you need a base map before you can touch it again or drive to the tuner.

yes, that is the complete mod list. I'm thinking about going vf39, with STi injectors, with an OTS cobb map, I have a manual boost controller on it, wouldd that affect anything? but what fuel rails would i need with a vf39? could i keep them as they are?

cobb has an ots map for a vf39, with STi pinks injectors. I'm thinking about buying a stock turbo to put on it, and taking my upgraded fuel rails off, boost controller off, and getting an accessport and run stage 2 for now, and upgrade little things.

You need to have exactly what the tune calls for. I think it specifically states JDM Pink STI injectors. You can find those used for ~$200, but be aware that they are more rare these days since newer cars haven't needed them for 7 years now.

You also need a better clutch if it's still on the factory one.

I'd need a vf39, and JDM pinks. anyone have any of those for sale? But I do currently have a stage 2 clutch. could I get a custom map from somewhere to tune for the fuel rails possibly?

Ah,I only said that cause I went to Cobb for a stage 1 with a short ram and they didn't even have that, I guess it was just my model year. They refeeredme to a list of tune shops that offered e tunes. They can make custom base maps for whatever u got.

i have actually never done this and plan to get a tune at a tune shop, but if this is your only option, i think a few ppl on this site have done this maybe they will "chime in".
