Yes, it's always better. This is exactly why I said most people look back in hindsight and say they should have just gone with Open Source.

AMS most definitely has a tactrix cable already. You would just pay for the price of the tune. The Access Port gets mated to your ECU so the same process cannot be followed (You must buy it).

That was a wrong assumption on my part. Seeing how big they are I didn't expect that. So MORE INFO to use while deciding!

Yes, AMS will only tune if you have a AP and yes it is worth a PROtune instead of OTS maps if you have all your bolton parts.

My first step would be an aftermarket intake (AEM most likely), along with a turboback exhaust(possibly UR or AMS) and then a COBB AP tune. Also, if i feel the need to possibly some new, wider summer tires. Im just looking for some pointers on how i should go about doing this and im on somewhat of a tight budget so if you guys have recommendations of cheaper products to use (quality is still my main concern).

Again, this is my first thread so please no flaming just constructive criticism.
welcome and congratulation on the purchase
