Tune**

I am getting a 05 cobalt ss/tc with a t3/t4 turbo and a qtp downpipe and it has no tune. Do i need one and what will happen if I dont get one and run it at 15 psi?

Verify that the car has these said turbos and it may just need a tune depending if the car is not running efficient. Drive it and check to see if it bogs, stalls or has a rough powerband. The buy does not have a 'safe' sound to it because I know not too much about turbos but I am assuming that anytime that you swap, it would be recommended to tune afterwards.

Any questions about the Balt, all answered here:

a tune should be one of the last things that you do to your car, get all your bolt on and then get tuned, if not you may have to get retuned to get the full power out of the car.

well you would just have to look at the option that they offer and if there are any that you need, i would suggest getting the stage 2 because it has the charge piping.

You can try to equip the car with performance chip. Aftermarket chips are designed to increase performance as well as horsepower and torque of the vehicle. The chip makes it possible to see exactly what is going on under the car's hood.This electronic accessory helps prevent the damage of the engine as it displays all the options on the screen alarming about the problems. The main function of the chip is to send commands to the vehicle's computer. You can get great fuel mileage and clean emissions using this electronic device.
