Come on guy's....First Mod E.C.U....Then go from there, piggybacks are not that

expensive and you'll allways be safe....Mod all you want up to 330 hp....More then that and you will need standalone and a good tuner.

You do not need an ecu if you put on a down pipe.

Buck there is no need for an ECU upgrade with a stock ride.

And just because you have an ECU or a Piggy back such as our PFS PMS units doesnt mean you wont blow your **** up if you go modding the car.

You gotta learn how to tune first.
