Ordered my turbo!

Well I sent my new garret turbo to barder turbo service today. Should have it back by next week and I can't wait. Question for those who know... What type of tune needs to be written? I have a looney wild for a pmax. Is this a good starting point? Or should I call Vivian and ask her about making a different tune? It's going to be a stage 2 (64.7mm). Also I didn't buy new boots and what not. Any tips on not letting them slip? Any tips on removing the old one and installing the new one? 05 ccsb by the way. Thanks in advance!

Carefully get a small screwdriver under the boots and work your way around them, then pull it off

Put them on with hairspray(don't leave the bootle in the shop or next morning you will hear about it) tighten the clamps More then fords specs that for sure, usually till the spring is fully collapsed and more

What's wrong with your pmax?

Lol. I'm ashamed to say. I bought this thinking it was a powermax. Got it for super cheap and it's not. The owner even thought it was..... It's just a stock garret.
Wouldn't happen to have a link with pics would you lol?

I second this, I'm done with all other tuners. Matt is a bad dude.

Okay I'll hit him up. Any idea on cost? One of the main reasons I went with quick tricks is due to the fact that they offer free unlimited tunes when you purchase your sct from them. I'll gladly pay for a tune though if it's worth it.
