need help on getting a tune

Planning on getting a tune soon. My car is a bit TOO laggy, and im only boosting 18 peak psi

here are my performance mods

2005 Sti

Garrett GT30
Perrin Short Ram
Perrin Front Mount
Headers
Down pipe and up pipe
Greddy Catback

( I bought the car with the existing mods, i havnt checked for the size of injectors and fuel pump, but the car runs flawless so im sure they are there )

let me know if you need more info to answer the question but i just want to make sure i have all the supporting mods for this set up b4 i pay for a dyno tune

What technical mods do i need to to get a tune?
MAF pipe?
Boost Solenoid?

I'd look into an intake and 3 port boost solenoid. Do an oil change also beforehand. With those mods I would hope there was some kind of engine management on that car. That isn't a small turbo, did you ask the previous owner about the cars mods when you bought it?

I would also put some fresh plugs in there as well.

i do have an intake. i have a perrin short ram or did you mean a different intake?

i believe the ecu was reflashed because there was no accessport and no piggy back that i could find. like i said the car runs great. my only complains are that its a bit to laggy and not enough boost. i dont throw any cels.

it's got a flash in there, I garontee you. There are no real requirements for tuning that thing other than what it has. 3-port BCS? May not need it. May already HAVE it. Who knows. Take it to a tuner and let him tell you, not the other way around.
