I just installed the Blitz throttle controller and plan to install the K&N typhoon intake and Joe Z exhaust when it gets in later next week. My buddy whose worked on cars forever said i should get a tuner/programmer to re-adjust air/gas ratios, etc. for all the mods. For you all that have installed similar gear, did you need to adjust anything?

Thanks in advance.

There's been a lot of posts in the forums in regards to retuning the ECU. Nearly all responses says that its impossible to retune.

Contact Asura Design. Last I heard they had a IS-F ECU and were working on it. They have some tricks up their sleeves that most there companies don't have. They do Lambo, Ferrari, Aston Martin, etc. They are in Orange county and there customer service is fantastic.

The F's computer will automatically re-adjust to the intake and exhuast. It takes about 200 miles or so to do so. As far as tuning the ECU not many know how to do it. I'm pretty sure Artisan knows how to since they are the ones that make the turbo kit for our cars.

I'm running all the parts your getting except the K&N Intake (I do have the Joe Z though) and you don't need to reprogram anything or mess with the ECU. There are no companies out there that can do that for the F anyway. I know of one company that tried but didn't succeed and I haven't heard of any other companies offering a reprogram for the F ECU/TCU.

I'm not sure Artisan has been able to reprogram or do anything with the ECU on the F although I would like to know for sure if anyone has any definite information.
