LT Headers + CAI and no tune?

How necessary is it that I get my tune right after the LT header install? LMR doesn't tune on Saturday's (really??) and I have a normal job. Not willing to use a sick day or vacation for the tune so I'm waiting until September for Matt at FSP to make it back to Houston

Do I risk doing damage if I hammer on it some until then? Or should I keep it under 75-80% throttle until after the tune?

You'll be okay. Expect a CEL to illuminate, though.

It won't harm anything. You just won't be utilizing your new mods to their full potential. Will likely get a CEL, but that's about it.

That's what I was thinking but I really wanted confirmation. Thanks

Tune isn't required. That said. You will get a CEL and if you have an A6. The AFM noise increase will make you want to drive off a cliff.
