Of course, man. Most people have flashes on Evos. The SAFC is just a crude tuning device that some people rely on if they can't get a flash or if they are just used to using it from their previous vehicle (like me with my DSMs). We've talked about it in detail right here on this forum, so go check it out:

Reflash or good ole SAFC2?

I put a lot of time into that response, so be sure to read it all. My preference is Dynoflash, btw.

ok thanks! so i should mod my car to the fullest before getting a flash correct? my plans are: intake, exhaust, exhaust manifold, bigger IC piping, cams and fuel.

Yeah, if you can afford to do all of it at once, then get flashed once, that is great. But, if you do it in stages, it's not that bad, because you can get reflashed at a discounted price.

I would recommend against the intake and upper IC piping, because those aren't helpful. I highly recommend:

- MBC
- BOV
- Fuel pump
- TBE
- Cams
- Stock ported/coated manifold
- Stock ported/coated 10.5 hotside (turbine housing)
- Coat tubular o2 housing
- Lower intercooler pipe (not upper)
- Dynoflash

The next step up would be alcohol injection. Btw, I have all of the mods above, except the LICP, but I will have that soon. Without the cams and alky, I ran 12.26 on 93oct, so I should be much faster now. :sneaky:
