dyno tuning

Hey, I just put on a few bolt ons:
Greddy front mount intercooler
Blitz BOV, atmospheric
AVO header and up pipe
HKS catless downpipe
APEX GT Spec catback exhaust
and i kno i need to get my car tuned for all of it. Ive been told to go wit a dyno tuning for best results but the one thing bothering me is that my car has 100,000 miles on it. The engine has been very well maintained and runs amazing i was just wondering if my car is good to be run on a dyno tune.

thanks justin

You should switch to a new downpipe. Isn't the HKS just like the stock downpipe? Get a downpipe that has a bellmouth design like the Helix, COBB, etc.

You should do yourself a favor and search BOV.

The car will definetly run better since you have those mods on it. You arent getting hardly a thing having all those mods are your car with no type of EM.

I don't get it... you're wondering if it would be ok to get dyno tuned as opposed to what... road tuning? No tune at all? What does your mileage have to do with being dyno tuned (or anything, for that matter)?

ANYONE will benefit from being road and/or dyno tuned. However, it's not always necessary. In your case, I would start by getting rid of that BOV. After that it would be a good idea to get a stage 2 reflash or an internet tune (via email), but spending $400+ on a dyno tune is a waste of time and money (imo). Save that for when you have more mods.

Everyone hates on the HKS downpipe, but on a "stage 2" setup I have never seen conclusive evidence of there being ANY difference, let alone any WORTHWILE difference between the two. I myself could never feel the difference. I'm not saying there isn't any, but people need to stop acting like hks downpipes are detrimental to everyone's health.

Yes your car is ok to get dyno tuned (or any type of tune for that matter) is highly suggested for your mods!!

the tune will probably only help your motor run better, especially with the mods you have on it already

Make sure the tuner knows what they are doing. Tuning a Subaru is not the same as tuning a honda. They will need to be knowledgable about the dynamic timing advance, etc.
