Question Stage 2?

I also posted this on FJ in the FSWerks section


Hey guys just a quick question regarding stage two. I have the stage one kit on my D23. Its running the stage one tune and the wastegate is set at 8psi. However I have a very large Garrett front mount installed and I also have a manual boost controller. My question is, what more do I need to turn it up to 11psi? My initial thought was that I would need a stage two tune. However, after looking at the FSWerks site regarding the stage two upgrade, it looks like I have everything that's required. There is no mention of a new tune. Thoughts?

Thanks guys,

Chris

Any time you raise the boost you need to change the tune

I kind of figured. Just wanted to double check. Tuning it is!
