Do it at 60 or 90, don’t wait for that 120 bullshit. Not worth the risk. They also scheduled that 10k oil change nonsense I never follow.

It’s prob best to lift the motor with shop crane if you can rent one. Dont floorjack it from the oil pan if you can avoid it.

Also the cca is important. The tiny racing batteries shave weight, but don’t meet the high electric demands under extended street use. If it does it’s pretty temporary.

It doesn’t cool the whole engine down just the inlet air going to the head. It will still run hot because engines generate heat from friction & turbos generate heat from creating pressure.

Is it a mild flash? Spiking 14 seems low for a tune. My previous gli used to spike like 20 on giac xplus, even on stock downpipe. Or maybe leak test?

They want you to do that cause it returns more $,$$$ to them. You could certainly use a high flow filter in the air box & less expensive downpipe with it.
