How safe is this?

Hello Tom,

I wonder if you could take a look at my list of mods, and tell me if I need a custom tune. I am currently running the reflash ECU tune from Ford Racing that is part of my BBK upgrade.

Is this tune still adequate even though I have forged pistons (10.2:1, so same compresssion as stock pistons), SRI, and no Cat?

Also, I am using the water/alcohol system as a safety buffer only, and with water only, and I don't want to include it in the tune. Does that make any sense?

Thanks for any advice...

CFM Short Block, Spec stage II, JRSC/BBK, K&N, NoCat, poly rear mount, Snow Performance stage II MAF W/I, STS, Hella projectors, Koni Sport, Vogtland springs, 22mm RSB,

A trip to the dyno and some logging would be the only way to answer that safely
