APR STAGE 2 DEFINATELY SLOWER!!

Ok, so I got stage 2 done (TBE, CAI, AND STAGE 2 TUNE) and the car definately is smoother, but is way slower! Im convinced its slower!!! Why? Could I have broke something? What the hell is the problem?? haha Its driving me nuts!!!


**************EDIT******************

Found out after many days of going back and forth, I finally called APR again, and asked for my programs instead of just asking "did everything stay the same" and they went through my programs and I found out the reason it was slower is well... IT WAS!! I was in 91 octane mode, instead of 93!!!

Your tune got deleted due to a bad flash. Common problem. Haha Jk.

It's the difference in low end torque vs stage I. Discussed many times lol.

Im on the fence for stage 2. I really like the power delivery of stage 1 (1.2). From what I here is that stage 2 is smoother but not really faster or quicker. I guess I will buy the the APR catback. I just really want it to have a louder exhaust. APR makes good products just I don't think the turbo back is worth it. There are a couple of good youtube videos comparing the two stages.

it is faster. but not quicker. after you've run stage 2 for a while stage 1 feels like a stuffed up nose.

Im thinking it could be my turbo getting heat soaked. Or maybe my diverter valve is broke?? Idk, just trying to think of ideas.

It's probably all Pschological.. At times I think my k04 is slow lol. Try putting it in stock mode and see if it feels the same.

Butt dyno NOT EQUAL TO actual performance, who knew? Stage 2 IS faster. If it isn't something is wrong with your car.

I think the thing with stg 2 is that it's deceptively fast. You don't really realize how fast it is because it's so smooth.
