Tuning question.

So from what I've gathered, once I've made the small mods I'm going to make to my '12 GenCoupe 2.0, I should have it tuned for peak performance with said mods.....duh

My question is....
Is it better to go with the Power Axel mail-in option or go with Beyond Redline's PowerX module?

I was reading that BR's module is for samll mods like intake and cat-back exhaust. I have a Greddy Type RS BOV I'm installing and a MBC installed. Am I still good with BR's base tunes or do I have to get the custom tune.

No flaming please, new to the turbo world.

No matter which option you choose you will not need a MBC. the reflash reprograms the stock solonoid or w.e. The car will boost to 21 without the mbc. And i would assume both options will be similar, but it will always be better to have it tuned for your car specifically.

Thanks again. I'm trying to find a shop around me that does tuning, but it's proving difficult. That's why I was looking into the PowerX module

If you buy more mods from BR the tuning upgrades are free.

& if you purchase everything from BR the tune is somewhat of a custom tune rather than a shelf tune in a sense as it was designed & tested on their car with their equipment on a dyno. The only difference would be in your car vs their car which the only reason you couldn't call it a custom tune. I personally like to have my car tuned on the dyno anywho, but then again I have an array of different parts from different manufacturers.
