Like a good man once taught me. You can start at the:Hi all I just bought a 17 q50 premium sport. I was looking jnti hks bov and the jb4.
I pretty much don't know where to start with modding for performance. Help n guidance is much appreciated! Where do I start.
One thing to consider when going the Ecutek route is the potential for rejecting engine warranty work if the dealership detects a flashed ECU. The JB4 doesn't require an ECU flash so it is easily removed with no trace if you have to take your car in for warranty work on the engine.I would do an ECUTEK instead of a JB4 because the JB4 is a piggy back and the ECUTEK is a reflash, but that’s personal preference. I would also look for the parts list for the AMS Performance RA500 package. It’s no longer sold as a package and you can find parts cheaper from other brands, but it will give a great idea of what bolt on’s you could start with. Ultimately however, your biggest gains will be from a tune.
of course, it all comes down to what do you want and what are you willing to sacrifice? Do you want a high horse power monster at the cost of reliability?Do you want just a little more oomph off the line, or higher in the RPM range? Or do you want to mod it in a way that increases its reliability, and any gains are just gravy? Etc. that’s the thing about customization, you’re making it custom to your tastes which makes your question hard to answer unless you elaborate on what your end goal is.
