For those running this tune with or without any other mods ,
Do you keep it on for the winter months? I use m45xl hks plugs and presently have a megan racing ******** which I'll be replacing it with the bellmouth 3" ********. Or instead of removing the tune I might just reprogram it to a lower boost
Setting and just replace the hks plugs for the 1422 plugs for winter. Right now I'm using 94 octane fuel. With the lower boost I'll be running in winter, I'll be using 91 octane.

That is an old version of our Stage1 they used to private label. In theory you could upgrade it to a JB4 by adding a JB4 control board and OBDII cable.

You won't know until you get a misfire or stumble.

Not sure how the 45xl plugs will perform in sub zero temps.
