Wow, very nice, you are inspiring me to start modifying mine already, and I don't have 200 miles yet

I'll also second the q re Carbonio intake. How do you like it?

I love the carbonio, hard to pronounce but oh well

Throttle response increased drastically with stock software, people say it makes a huge difference with stage 1.. I am bot going to take it out to test it lol

Stage 1 with carbonio is awesome!!

Quick note, it has been posted many times on this forum that carbonio stage 2 does not make much difference... Looks better but not a lot of performance gains...

APR Stage 1, I got the flash about a week ago and I love it! It is an awesome power increase. Program switching is easy! I can not wait for the iPhone app!

I paid $600 CDN including labour at RPI Equipped!


I got the stock/91/93/100 programs...

I also ordered the S3 Intercooler and AWE Turbo Outlet Pipe, hopefully I will instal it by the end of the month. I do plan to do some logging ( not dyno just from ECU) before and after the install!

I will keep this thread updated

S3 intercooler and AWE TOP is now installed! It took me good 8 hours, first time doing something like this ever.

Awesome performance increase! I highly recommend it to everyone!

Its a small pipe that connects to your intercooler, however, stock version is very restrictive. AWE makes one from aluminum. Much more volume..

Ah, thanks. Now I feel silly for not getting that from its name
