first gear is fine. then it just holds 2nd and doesnt seem to change gears - its kinda stupid. I love manual mode though.

Oh ok....yeah it does hold 2nd a little too much sometimes. It did that for me even on Stage 1 so its not necessarily a K04 thing.

Manual mode is just amazing

I figured as much. They probably dont have much margin from the supplier anyways.
meh i suppose, its hard to get group buys anyways. the eurojet ic group buy is doin great with 3 people signed up. we could just continue to advertise about how great the ko4 upgrade is to get individual buyers.

I think that's the best option. I've already seen 4 people committed to buying a K04 at sale time. Seems like a no brainer to me, but until then, I'll preach how awesome it is.

Tried that, and then it just shifted back to where it wanted to be several seconds later.

M mode FTW!

I have a question for all in the boner club.

I was curious if you noticed any change in the sound of your exhaust after going K04?
....weather its louder? Deeper? ....

always been curious about that because I have still yet to hear one in person.

Thanks....

the engine sounds deeper, dont think it affects exhaust.
