i have been reading these forums for a couple of monhs since i got my 2000 zx3, im interested in modding my car with the following


Focussport or volant intake
focussport stealth exhaust system, flex pipe and racing headers
TB, dont know what brand yet
FS cam gears
FS UDP

well what im not still sure about is when exactly do i need to tune and also i dont know were to go, anybody know were to go in the san diego area, the closer to the border with Tijuana the better

when you guys say you need to tune is it Dyno tuning?

thanks for your help guys

well, with a tune, you can either do what's called datalogging with your preferred tuning device, most people go with the SCT XCalibrator II, and send the people that you bought that from a log, and then they will create a tune for you that you download into the unit, then to your car. from what i've heard, they usually do a pretty good job of it.

dyno tuning, on the other hand, is where you go to your local dyno shop and have them create a tune specifically for YOUR CAR. now, this is better than sending emails to people that don't have your car there to work with, but it will cost more since you have to pay the shop to do it.

third, you could always buy your xcal and do it yourself. but you would really have to know what you're doing, otherwise you'll [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] up your car.

most people do a tune after intake and exhaust, and i'm pretty sure you need a tune anyways when you put in cams.

hope this helps!

as far as your mods, get the Focus Central TB. i just put mine on and it's AWESOME!

Def get all of your mods and then tune. Its the best way to get the most power of of the tune, and its the safest.
