I have recently started a thread about this similar topic but got many complaints about my lack of goals.....so here is a new thread with full details of what I have planned and in store....Also I'm planning on staying fully N/A all the way

My current setup is B&M short shift kit, AEM SR intake, DC Sports 4-2-1 headers and a skunk2 cat back system

I have in posession a Professional Products 68mm TB and IM but have not installed then due to lack of money and reports I have heard from advice givers (e.g. the TB and IM won't help)

My future parts plans are AEM fuel rail,pressure reg./filter and a pulley set

My question is do I need to upgrade my ECU for these parts? and also would a tune be needed?

Also lego building has been a term thrown around which I dont necessarily deny but at the same time I have cleared this list with a few trusted people.....I will appreciate any advice about whether these plans are just retarded since I am a rookie or if this is a good plan and needs a few modifications or suggestions

Sounds like you need to do some reading/research.

The TB and IM are beneficial, but do you know exactly what they would do to your torque curve??

AEM fuel rail- ABSOLUTE waste of money...it looks pretty though. It will not improve anything...especially not performance.

Pressure regulator- useful, but not really necesary in your case (staying N/A)

Upgrade your ECU/Would a tune be needed-...hhmmm...how to handle this one. Being that it is essentially the same thing, I grouped the 2 together. YES 10000 times a tune is needed if you would like to improve performance of the things you already have!!! An ECU would not be 100% necesary if you were to take an AFC route, but in the long run, a tunable ECU (CROME, hondata, eCtune, etc) would be the better way to go- and this would be what I would consider an "ECU upgrade".

i agree with jrutski, fuel rail and reg wont help you gain any power at all on your setup. we use stock rail/reg upwards of 500+whp on turbo setups.

a tune isnt necessary but its always gonna help make the most of your modifications.
