What should I expect to pay for an open source, stage 2, pro-tune of my '07 FXT?

So far the only performance upgrades are to the exhaust. I've got a TurboXS cat-less 4" downpipe, 3.5" TurboXS high-flow cat, 3.5" TurboXS mid-pipe, and axle-back is just a stock STi muffer.

Do I even need a pro-tune? Could I just get a map created for it that I could load myself?

You should be running some type of tune. But a typical stage 2 map should do the trick. Search for XPT tuning they have cheap maps for opensource. But I would recommend a cobb AP so you can change things later. Then Robbie can tune your car. :lol:

That really depends on what you want out of the car and what you're willing to tolerate. No, you don't have to have a professional tune done, but you'll leave a lot on the table if you do not. The other issue is that off the shelf maps "can" be dangerous.

This thread was a little bit-rotten, but I think I've decided that I definitely do want a stage 2 pro tune, but I think that I should get my TMIC upgraded at the same time.

A friend of a friend is an engineer for TurboXS and he said the tiny stock TMIC was prolly holding me back more than anything, specially in this climate.

Might aswell take advantage of the mods you have already installed. The txs huge topmount is a good choice I make multipl back to back drag strip runs and it stays cool to the touch.

The WRX TMIC can be a problem. Depends what you're trying to do. I do all my mapping based on the compressor profile. Even then, the IC can get nice and hot depending how much boost is being pushed through it.

I'd recommend a water/meth kit before a an aftermarket IC. There are some nice ones for as little as $350 (Coolingmist comes to mind if they still have them) with progressive control. That's a lot of bang for your buck. I normally pull enough fuel out that even your factory injectors that may have hindered the set up will be sufficient.
