Bolt ons and tuning

Bolt ons and tuning

Did a search and found nothing on this, so I apologize if I'm asking questions that have already been answered. I want to know if tuning is required, and when I mean required I mean not to damage the engine by running too lean, when doing bolt ons. I am referring to downpipes, which I think you guys call them front pipes, straight pipe or cat delete, catback exhaust and replacing the stock intake boxes with pod filters.

I know I won't be getting max power out of these mods without tuning, I just want to let the engine breathe better.

Appreciate your input, and again, sorry if this question has already been asked and answered.

Ass-uming you mean on stock ecu? No, you can do basic boltons on stock ecu. Issue is more when you start to increase the boost.

You're not going to get any more power out of changing your airbox for a pod filter - potentially you'll get less if you don't enclose it but exhaust improvements may show a slight benefit immediately. As above no tune required and if you have a stock ecu no tune possible anyway.

Apologize. Should have been more specific. Yes, I meant stock ECU.

Thanks for the answers.
