TBE w/o engine mangement

Hey guys I'm getting a turbo back exhaust within the next couple weeks. Am I going to see some problems without having engine management done and having the TBE installed??

You will probably get a check engine light after the install....you should think about getting a protune after you install to get al the bang for your buck.

I had no problems, but it's not the smartest thing in the world to ride around like that too long w/o em

alright yeah money isn't much of an issue, I just want to do the safest thing for my car. With the EM you can reset it to stock right if I have to take it in for check ups and what not

I would ###### go with cobb ap just because that seems the easiest to use and has good results. I'll talk to the performance shop when I go in after christmas.

Yeah definetly talk to the shop that will or you want to tune your car, see what they like or see what the pros and cons of each are. Read up in the forum, there is alot of information around. All the EMs have their ups and downs depending on the end product of your car.
