Having OEM recalls done will help but nothing like proper mods will help.

Better plugs, fuel line, new oem coils, safer tune are the main ones.

The tune they update them to is not much safer at all. The plugs, coils, and fuel line are also causes for engine failures in them.

OEM coils from Albert Hwang on FB.
KDM tuners for the fuel line.
NGK 1422 plugs also from KDM tuners will be good enough in a 13 VT.

Gap plugs to .028" on stock tune and .024" on a tune adding decent power. Most tuners will cap the 13's around 230 whp.

You just want to basic tune but you also want new OEM coils, proper plugs and gaps, and an aftermarket fuel line. Then you'll be fine as long as you have proper maintenance and run premium fuel.
