Default Should I UpRev Tune?

I was wondering if tuning my car would be worth it with just the few mods I have. I have Agency Performance cat back exhaust, Berk testpipes, resonator delete, no cats, and stillen gen 3 dual intakes. Also curious if a flame map would work and produce some flames with my set up?

Yes, you should get a tune. Ecutek is probably a better option. Skip the flame map unless you're comfortable with people thinking you used to own a Honda with a fart can.

The rule-of-thumb is:
* Intake mods only = no tune required
* Exhaust mods only = no tune required
* Intake mods + exhaust mods = tune required
In the first two instances, the ECM can usually adjust to compensate for the mods.

FWIW, I agree with Chuck33079 about the flames. YMMV
Trips, jchammond and Zweet like this.
