Does installing a downpipe need tuning?

I'm wondering if I would need a tune after installing a downpipe/test pipe and removing cats on a 2010 RA. I'm coming from the WRX world where the 02-03 didn't need tuning whereas the 04+ did due to fuel cycling issues. Thanks for you help.

Better use the search function...



To be safe yes you need one. But it might be fine. I have GST Basemap + test pipe and it's fine. I monitored my boost, AFR and knock and every seams in order. With the stock map, I don't know...

I had a downpipe installed and it seemed fine but I got it retuned anyways. Better safe than sorry.

No, you do not require a tune.
