really all you need as a toms tune, the orp, and a 2.5 inch exhaust. and jsut do about 65 in like 4th gear then back off it real fast. its what i do. it lights upa little bit but its nothing special. my car also runs a tad bit rich all the time. dunno why..

re

If you only do the ORP, you will get a CEL, only way to get rid of that is a tune or MIL eliminator. Go with Toms tune he is very helpful as you do more to the car.
