I am now feeling the urge to get a tune because Mo powa babeh. Since I own a 13 VelosterTurbo built in September, I figured the car would safely handle 250-260HP without blowing up.

Besides getting HKS sparkplugs, are an upgraded intercooler and downpipe mandatory for a tune?

So, which manufacturer/tuner would provide best performance for money? Should I also try local Tuners as well or would they be somewhat unreliable?

So just so we can better guide you. Your only mod so far is overpriced sparkplugs?

Upgraded down pipe, intake, tune, exhaust, etc are the usual upgrades for anything turboed.

Oh no. I was only made aware that upgraded spark plugs are required. So far I got:

K&N Cold Air Intake
HKS SSQV4 Blow Off Valve
Sxth Element Mac BOV Solenoid
Oil catch can
NGK level 7 spark plugs
Intercooler resonator delete
Upgraded radiator and clutch (don't know the exact parts since it was a result of 2 different accidents)
Muffler Delete
Eibach Springs 1" drop
KYB struts
Strut Bar

Cooling is key to yield more "power"

Based on that list an upgraded intercooler, downpipe and possibly a tune on a dyno could squeeze out some more power just where you're at.

All sounds good. Cooler is always better.

Any recommendations for which manufacturer makes good tunes? Heard Tork was crap
