I need a tune!

Ok so i have an h22a in my 4th gen. (i badly need to update my ride page)

Megan headers, aem v2 intake, Crower Stage one cams, mishimoto radiator (doesnt change much just bragging )

I currently have a p28 chipped ecu from phearable.net that was basemapped for everything stock when i first swapped motors

heres my question, in your opinion what should i do next?

I want to get a tune and get a solid dyno run. I plan on getting head work and either an aftermarket intake manifold of get it ported with my head.

should i inquire for another basemapped p28 for my mods, get a alternative ecu management program of just get my ecu reflashed and get it re tuned once more work is done?

also does anyone know a good tuner shop/ machine shop in the south east? I live in NC but willing to travel/pay for good results. IF you wanna dance you gotta pay the dj :)

Re: I need a tune!

you dont tell anything about rest of your exhaust?
hope thats atleast 60mm and better cat... if not, get them

next:
- good header
- better IM (like blacktrax, skunk2)
after those - custom tune

dont think that youll be needing head work there... if your valves and other head stuff are ok

Re: I need a tune!

hahah sorry i knew i was forgetting something.

I have a tanabe hyper medallion exhaust from cat back. I do need a new cat ive been looking at a few but i want a bolt on one that doesnt chnge the sound of my exhaust. thats the main thing im worried about.

the reason i was wondering about a tune is i know that its running rich. And im not to sure how the condition of the springs and everything in the head are in. but i read alot about shaving some of the head and getting a port and polish raises compression and increases power.

I havent been able to find a intake manifold other than skunk (which i dont want) and a euro type r one.

as far as the headers go from what ive found that megan is the best for the money for the power im pushing. once i get more power i plan on getting better headers

Re: I need a tune!

The euro r intake manifold is one of the best manifolds for our cars actually. Dont see why you wouldnt want one. Also the megan header is pretty much worthless. Or just as good as stock. You should look into the hytech replica or the new vibrant header they just came out with.

Re: I need a tune!

Re: I need a tune!

yeah he said he doesn't want a S2 IM, which I don't blame him. they're a horrible company. I have a euro r manifold. untuned. definite increase in tq and hp, mainly tq. I completely agree with blackbb6 on the header suggestions. if you want even more hp, upgrade to a 3" exhaust as well. increase in hp and tq across the whole powerband

I looked on the site. under the "how to" section theres a full writ up on everything he does so that it will just bolt up! definatly worth the extra money to have it all done and done well!

because it costs double what skunk2 and blacktrax does, its harder to get and its even not that much better than those 2
IMO not worth of the cost

I got vibrant. fits perfect...it just need short "fitting pipe" to the cat and IMO its a better product than any of those replicas (people have had problems with them)

I bought that skunk2 over year ago, have had no problems with it.

when my head was made, the guy (professional, he does rally teams engines etc) said that compression should come from pistons, that he really doesnt like the idea getting if from shaving head

Yes, you are running your motor too lean with the H23 injectors. Way too lean! Have any problems with starting and with throttle response? ;)
