You need to get rid of that VAFC or whatever.........it doenst controll spark, so tuning is limited. If you get a chipped ECU and a proper tune, your car will be just as reliable as it was before the boost. I had a poor fuel management system and I believe Oil failure....Thats why mine blew up.

I'm confused, are you saying that you need the safc-2 in order to get it fully tuned? Or because you have the safc-2, you need to chip the ecu and get it fully tuned instead
