Damned if you do, damned if you don't at this point.

I'll just get the tune at this point.

From the experience I got with the tuned car with only a header and exhaust is it is still worth the outlay.

Even without a tune, the car as it stands now seems much better, it seems to rev much more freely in the midrange, proof of if I'm imagining it or not will be pre dyno results.

Stock, the torque drops its show bags badly, from 210nm down to 185nm (25nm or about 9%) from around 3-4.5 rpm, it might not seem much, but as the car has F all to start with it is noticeable daily driving.

Cold start is now quite loud though, it does settles down once the cold start has done its thing, or if I blip the throttle.

I'm sure the neighbors are aware of my new and improved exhaust modifications now.

The tune will remove the cold start issue now that that particular function is redundant, and hopefully, the tune flattens the curve out.

The cat in the midpipe seems to be doing its thing well, I'll get them to check my emissions when it's tuned to ensure compliance.....
