Default My next step?

I'm not really sure what to do next or what to read about next.

You can see what I added to my car in the signature. I have sourced a used CS catted TBE and want to toss that in in the future. I am also planning a TMIC or FMIC when I find a decent used one around locally.

I am not sure what would be the next step. Im going to read up on BCS next. I'm waiting to add the exhaust, and intercooler prior to getting a real tune. For now the OTS map is working well for me.

Any suggestions where I should direct my research and money?

No I don't. I really don't know a ton of car guys so I can't say I want my car ____ many HP. I don't know what my goal should be. I guess I kind of learn about a new part and try and buy it and put it in the car and whatever happens happens.

I actually and very happy with where the car is at now. But I enjoy the process of learning, working on the car and then being proud of the outcome.

Ethanol = the "E" in E85 or E35, or E15, etc.

Methanol = Meth

Install the catted DP and get a good custom tune. It will take some revisions to optimize it. Working with a custom e-tuner takes patience and time. Tune for 93 octane if available.

Stop then and enjoy for a while. You may be happy right there. You will have maxed out the K04 at that point, anyway at about 300-310 whp if done right. Maybe explore a tune for ethanol for 15-20 more whp.

Intercooler does not add power, it just keeps you from losing power due to heat soak and hit weather. A FMIC will increase turbo lag and spool time due to longer piping. It’s a trade off. I never found the benefit justified the extra length between intake and turbo.

I’d slow down at that point and get to know the car. Oh, yes, that’s what I did.
