So the three types of tuning there is is the AP, Manic and RPM?

I just bought the Alta accessory for 500 but now feel like I might be regretting it? Also still trying to figure out how everything works.

As of right now my car is completely stock too. I've just done a muffler delete on it.

This is what I have planned
-turbosmart 50/50 kompact BOV
-NM cold air induction kit
-NM intercooler piping
-NM oil catch can
And
-catless down pipe (probably PLM, but unsure)

I first did stage 1 with a resonator delete. I ran that for a few months and it was amazing. I now run stage 2 with a full 3" setup.

The only thing with the AP is that if you decide to go to stage 2, you'll need a full 3" setup to get the most out of the tune, according to Alta. Some others on here have been running a 2.5 and 2.75 setup and I think they've been fine.

I'm guessing the other tunes out there let you run 2.5" and 2.75" setups.
