. Do you mean like only hand full of times a day or like once a week? Cause there is different tunes for each of those scenarios.

If you just bought it you need to have it checked out before you spend money on upgrades. Take it to a reputable shop, have them drive it really hard and monitor the engine coolant temps and engine oil temps. Also have them test the head gaskets with a coolant pressure gauge. If all that checks good change the oil and oil filter, fuel filters, only use oem filters. Now order a straight pipe, SCT tuner.. run a light tune if it's not studded and if it is get some custom tunes and let it eat! 🤘
