Tools for the turbo?..

Anyone know the tools needed to install the fswerks stage 1/2 kit.. I'm ready to buy it but want to make sure I have every tool for the install so there's no hang ups.

all you need are your basic spanners and wrenches. nothing reql special. turbos just really bolt on and go. besides the obvious tune and what not

Alright then ordering it today I'm gonna take it and get it tuned at a shop with the sct tuner would it be ok to drive it 15 or 20 minutes without a tune to the shop?.

well unless you leave in the stock injectors and maf housing, you wont even get it to start without some kind if base tune. i thought the fsweks kit came with a tune, no?

I believe there are preset tunes on the sct one that comes with the kit but idk how to fine tune everything when it comes to the air fuel mix and rev points so ill have the shop adjust it for me. The preset tune will be enough to get it started and to the shop though?.. If anything I'd like to not have to tow it.. And I heard of fswerks being able to help you tune over the phone and datalog as well?.. Or am I mistaken
