Is this map close enough??

I have a cobb AP tuner on the way. I'm looking for the best map for my set up. I plan on getting a pro tune early 09'...... My current mods include: Ported TD05-H big 16g, silicone inlet pipe, AEM cold air, 4" down pipe, 3" up pipe, 3" catless exhaust, tuboXS RFL blow off, 565cc "pinks", iridium plugs, STOCK intercooler, STOCK fuel pump, STOCK ECU......
SO is this map close enough to run safley? (until i get protune)
FP16G turbo, STI TMIC, STi "Pink" 565cc fuel injectors, & turboback exhaust with a high flow catalytic converter using 91 octane. 337HP (+49%) / 281lb-ft (+29%)

You just spent hundreds on the AP, I would rather be safe than sorry and spend $100 on a 255 fuel pump, that is an easy swap, and another $150 on the intercooler, another hour tops. People sell those all the time.
You can really do some damage by running the wrong map. To be honest, you've probably already taken some life off your engine by running that setup without the proper mapping or supperting mods.

And buy a stock air box while you're at it and sell the AEM CAI on ebay.

No, your stock map is not good with that setup and neither is anything on the AP. You need something custom.

You can seriously damage your car in just a few pulls with a setup like that. Get it tuned. If you can't get it tuned, wait to put the parts on or don't drive it. If you already put them on and NEED to drive your car, drive like a grandma. NEVER use ANY boost and keep it below 3000 rpms.

Also, yes. That intake is an serious piece of shit. Get it off your car as soon as you can. The BOV ain't helping anything either btw.

Other options are to buy a used stock turbo and sell the 16G orPDX and do custom AP e-tunes.You tell them your mods and they will send you the tune via email.You just load it into the AP.
