I know your website says that the Stage 2 results are with a minimum of an intake and exhaust installed, but right now I'm stock in that department aside from a K&N air filter. I do plan on doing the exhaust in a few months, but I'm in the market for a tune now. Can I get the Stage 2 and get an update when I upgrade my exhaust or do I need to go with a Stage 1 for now? Sorry for the noob question but I'm a noob to this. Don't want to gimp myself with the Stage 1 if I'll be able to get by with a Stage 2 and update it later.

You will want a stg. 1 to start out with.

Once you get more mods, you can jump to a stg. 2 for a small fee.

You will choose the Stg. 2 option when ordering. Once you have it ordered, we send you a form to submit that will state all your mods and Racerom functions you would like activated. Then we make you a map for your specific mods.

The flashing process is plug and play. It is as simple as installing a program on your computer.

perfect! just what i wanted to hear

not going to lie the 2step limiter alone is enough for me to pay 800 bucks... the optimal performance from my aftermarket parts is a nice thing also lol as noob as that might sound. in that form would i specify what rpm i would like it set too? or is there an optimal rpm you guys recommend?

So if you buy the stage 2 w/ cable + liscence, you need to buy race rom also to use the new features like the VSC sport tunes etc.


Sorry I am new to Tuning and I want to be sure what I am getting.

If you are not getting a tune from us and only getting the license and cable to tune yourself racerom is not included and would need to be purchased separately.

I am currently waiting on my FT86SpeedFactory catted UEL header and I plan on getting the stage 2 tune after I install that.

Currently I have a K&N filter with a Zeta Performance inlet tube for my intake mods. Is it worth getting a full intake like the aFe or AEM with the tune? Will i see any noticeable different in performance?

It would be really cool if you guys offered a package that combined your own header with a tune made specifically for it.

Example: FT86Catted header $925 + FT86Header Tune Kit $825 - 12% bundle discount = $1540

You will most likely net a few more horsepower with the full intake. If you can live without it, I would not worry about it.

Hrmmm...this is a pretty good idea. Needs a bit of work on that pricing though!
