APR Stage 1 and Carbonio

My R will get APR Stage 1 and a Carbonio intake on Friday. Can't wait!

Cool. Mine was supposed to get both Friday as well, but the intake won't be in until next week.

No worries as I'll get to drive the 30-40 min's back to RPI to pick it up next Friday.

Just got my APR stage 1 yesterday, installed the Carbino intake about a month ago. I LIKE IT !

I'm going for a drive today and looking for a twisty road.

Why don't you put the HPFP also, together with stage 1+ ?

The numbers are even more interesting...

Maybe in the future. At the moment I don't happen to have a spare $1k floating around. I will say this, though--with the intake and the Stage 1, the car has plenty of power. I can't imagine, at this point, I would ever need any more. But, I may change my mind in a few months.

We always need more power ! Actually for my needs, my S4 satisfied me.....the R stage 1 is still a way behind the S, power and performances wise.

I agree the intake does not make a huge difference but you do get a bit better response turbo will come on a touch faster and overall if just feels a bit sharper. it is by no means night and day, but there is a difference. im sure the full intake systems have a bigger impact.

I can't really comment as to the difference the intake makes, since I got it the same time I had the tune done. All I know is that more air into the engine can't be a bad thing.

I agree and I like mine as well.
