They do. When I'm bored I take it out and look at it.

This one came with a muffler delete
Do you blow into it to get it spinning.

Just be careful with overboost

I came to a decision today. Once the turbo is installed I'm going to get the car dyno tuned. I don't wanna mess around with logging and potentially losing my license in the process. I just need to decide by whom, but it's looking like eqt most likely.

Great decision. EQT did mine remotely. 8 revisions 3 hours and done.

Yea, the whole etune thing I see on all these build threads is so long and drawn out, much prefer to just one and done it.

How far in advance do you get the base map though? There's definitely room for headache with a remote dyno tune if things aren't perfectly ironed out going into it. Some things, which may not be apparent until you're already into the tuning process.

Looking at my own experience for example, I was four or five revisions in before it became apparent something was wrong with my HPFP. That would have caused me to have to stop the tuning process, rebook the dyno, rebook Ed, all probably at additional costs.

If your car is good to go, and your 100% sure of it, I'd absolutely say remote dyno tune is the way to go. But just keep in mind, there's still room for complications.

I guess it depends on the shop and the situation. I usually leave fueling to the shop doing my Dyno tuning in the past, had a fuel pump issue with my walbro 450 during tuning, took it out swapped a new one in, kept going.

As far as base map to get there, I’ll usualy just ask them if it’d be ok to drive to them with the mods, usually it’s ok, just say no wot of course, low rpm’s.

I used to have shops do the big installs like turbo and fueling, but since I bought my house I got less cash to spare for 800$ installation bills lol.

The only base map I had was the one running my IS38. I went right from the place that installed the TPC20 using the IS38 base map to the dyno place very carefully. Put it on dyno and 8 revisions later it was done. Needless to say the first two runs didn't get very far.

Yeah yours was an unusual circumstance because of a faulty HPFP. I didn't have any mechanical problems to deal with.
