So it looks like Iím picking up a used (low-ish miles) invidia DP. I plan to get a new pro-tune with it, but before I do, I wanted to get a couple other things in there at the same time. Iím thinking of TGV deletes (mostly because why not), a relocated IAT sensor in the intercooler for accurate temp measuring, and switching to a MAP based tune (Iím under the impression thatís a more resilient tune?). Header/up pipe are not in the budget, but I was wondering what you guys thought about these, and if there is any other ďlittle/easyĒ mods that need a tune, that I could toss in there as well. OH, and I already have a 3 port EBCS.

I prefer the Speed Density / MAP & IAT Sensor option as this clears out the MAF Sensor.
You don't need to care about good airflow to the MAF Sensor. Now you can concentrate to get a good flow towards the turbo itself. If that makes sense at the powerlevels we are.

And I feel like MAP/IAT Sensors aren't as prone to failure as MAF Sensors are.
But this is just a guess from my side with no actual experience to it/based on how those sensors are constructed. Someone who knows better might correct me.

If you want to compare from a "failure" side, SD doubles your potential for failure on a sensor malfunction standpoint.

I personally prefer using a MAF, however, there comes a point at higher power levels where SD has it's usefulness. For the most part, you lose resolution as you scale higher. In the case of a Subaru with a FMIC, you end up with so much piping that it can delay a MAF signal and then you need to vent it back into the inlet.

Thanks mate!
True dat with doubling the failure potential.
But I assume the MAP/IAT sensor are more reliable than a MAF Sensor?
Well looks like I need to do some more reading and putting thoughts into it

I haven't found a MAF sensor to be unreliable. They are temperature dependent, but that's what the MAF temp compensation table is for. In previous makes of cars, I'm guessing the correction was built into the sensor because I never had to worry about it on my SHO.
