What if?

What would happen if I get a bigger turbo installed but nothing else until later on?

I.e. No tune, larger IC, etc.

Not an expert on this, but pretty sure you're gonna need a tune for the turbo unless you want the car to go into limp mode.

Nothing good. You need right air/fuel ratios, boost, fueling and timing to run properly. If you have more compression without the right tune you can hurt your engine components. Bad idea in an EPIC way.

As others have said. Bad idea. Go FBO first, then do turbo.

It's a couple grand to go FBO if you do the work yourself. Worth it for the longevity of your vehicle.

This is like buying a primed bumper and installing it on your car while you can't afford paint. Don't do it. You need paint in this case (a tune).
