440 and 550 refer to the injector size the tune is for. Check out his site, specifically the FAQ for more info. He says he is all out of chips.

I mean you could keep your stock turbo i suppose (i dont know this for a fact, can someone verify?) but that would kind of defeat the purpose of the Robtune eprom. The robtune allows (not only allows but requires) you to install larger injectors, one reason of the larger injectors is that most people upgrade their turbo to a TD05 (which is what the tune is based around) or something similar in size. Even a stock TD04 will suffice. I guess what im saying is you wont get the full benefit of the robtune with your stock turbo.

A TD04 or TD05 will bolt directly up to the stock 22t up-pipe

Hmmm, tubes as in vacuum lines and oil and coolant lines? Yes. Intake will need some slight modification as well i believe. As for the injectors they are a MUST for either robtune set-up to run correctly.

Read these threads top to bottom and comment if you still have any questions.

Okay and I'm not used to this app yet. I'm trying to find how to see what injector style EJ22T have. Either side feed or top feed. I tried searching the site and can't find any.

These cars have side feed 370 cc/min injectors.

I recommend trying to access the site from a computer or tablet and reading through some of the links posted that will help address some of your questions.
