Tuning... Genereal Consensus

Ok, so I have searched and read thru probably 20 threads on tuning.

I know not everyone will agree, but Im looking for an average/general idea of what most of you think the minimum amount of mods you think is absolutely necessary to start tuning?

For instance, I have an AEM V2 intake, headers, a full magnaflow catback and a short shifter. At this point I wouldnt tune it,

however, my next major mod is probably a skunk2 intake manifold, you think thats a good place to start tuning?

A Jackson racing Supercharger will be done in the next 2 years.

Thoughts?

If you have headers, you needed some kind of special tune forever ago.

Re: Tuning... Genereal Consensus

you wouldnt need a tune with bolt ons or i/h/e alone. once you go forced induction though dont skimp out on the tuning!

Re: Tuning... Genereal Consensus

there is no minimum mods to tune, you will see a benefit if you have 0 mods or 5 mods

Re: Tuning... Genereal Consensus

why are you wasting money on an IM if you're just going to get a supercharger?

LOL, fair question... but I can justify a few hundred bucks and have a new Intake Manifold in a month or so. For me its not a waste, as I would like the benefits of the IM sooner rather than later, and Im sure I can sell the IM when Im done with it.

I have to buy my wife a house before my 4runner and Prelude get supercharged. But they will be supercharged... yes they will. Our lease is up next spring so Im thinking it will be at least a year before I can start putting away the money for the superchargers.

Re: Tuning... Genereal Consensus

Tune? Jackson racing supercharger? How about a full teardown of the engine before anything else. Tunes are not needed for bolt ons. Definitely need a tune for aggressive cams, forced induction, spider monkeys. You will need a healthy engine and lots of discipline not to raise the psi. Drive it for what it is, tune out the 'Yota.
