So after pulling my intake off two weeks ago to replace pcv hose, I got a good look at the tumble flaps. They are definitely going to break off soon. I have searched and read a lot of threads on removal of the flaps, but there seems to be no firm answer on if I can safely run my car without a tune. If I remove the flaps and bar but leave everything else hooked up can I run without a tune until summer? I have to put tires on soon so can't blow money on a tuner just yet, but I don't want my motor to get messed up either. All I have done to my car is a homemade SRI and I don't plan on doing anything else performance wise for a while.
