I'm not saying you guys are wrong at all, i just can't take the risk of something breaking. It is my only car and I need to be at work every day

We can't move on to exhaust cause you didn't admit to being a Nancy yet


For exhaust your sig says otherwise. You said you won't.


And my friends evo is Cobb accessport tuned for his down pipe, HTC, exhaust, intake, and inter cooler kit. Its fine and drives like normal.

Aftermarket tuning is usually 99% better than factory tuning.

Everything you say/ who you get your info from is wrong.

Go try to upload more, I only have about 400 photos up, I guess the regular webshots is shutting down. I'd post a screenshot, but have no place to upload it...

New smile shit:

a tune is the best thing that ever happened to my car. you are not risking anything, you have not heard horror stories about a cobb tune other than some idiot user error unrelated to cobb.

I've only heard one bad thing about Cobb. Some was half ass tuning cars, they fired him instantly when they found out. That was years ago tho.

Also this. A tune will not hurt your car.

You are miss informed.

This I why I love kevin.


Kevin lowered and put an axle back and is gonna tune his car. He drives more than any of us in a day for work. How many issues has he had? None.....


I tuned my car, took cat off, lowered it exhaust. Blah blah blah 20k+ a year only car.

Sure I've had issues, it has 100k, stiff doesn't last forever.

If you've got 110k+ your prob due for a suspension refresh and more.

The reasoning you use, i think its from xceedspeed threads. Sounds like it
