do i need a tune?????

i had the hellion twin turbo set up on my car and it was tuned a lil bit rich by my tuner. now every thing is exactly the same except i flip the headers forward so alot less piping and instead of exhaust to back of the car with muffles its a foot long down pipe out the side of the front bumper. should i retune it?

I would think that your fine as long as you kept the same mass air meter, FP, and injectors.

I wouldnt take that chance. Tune it and you will know its right. A tune is cheaper than having to tare down the engine

just because the a/f is correct doesnt mean there is any detonation. its way easier to check on the dyno

I guess this statement led me to believe that $75 just for them to check the a/f.
