Possible new Stage 1 file from APR?

Anyone heard when this may be coming after the K04 update?

I can't get an answer in that thread.

Haha I keep checking in on that thread too hoping to see any eta's on the K03 stage 1/2 updates, but haven't seen anything.

We are the low guys on the totem pole though, so I'm expecting an extensive wait.

It doesn't specifically 'fix' anything.
But Arin stated in another thread that it is 'smoother' and more 'driveable'. He said there wasn't much power they could add to Stage 1.

I'm just trying to get an idea of when this may be available....how far down on the totem pole we are.

I'm guessing a month after the K04 update is released.

Exclamation

I thought I heard something about stage 2 making more power, and perhaps elimination of rev hang and other features. If not, I am switching to DM.

All upgrades are 'free'. That is, free from APR. Your installer may charge you something to attach his laptop and do the download.

Not 100% true. K04 file is a $300 upcharge unless you buy their kit new. However, if you were to buy a CTS or AWE kit, you'd have to pay the fee to upgrade the file.

Otherwise, any other file switching is free less labor (if applicable at your shop). The place I got tuned initially wanted to charge me $95 of labor. I told them to gfy.

I didn't hear that... not sure APR would get rid of rev hang. I do like what I'm hearing from DM. He's still testing though right?

I sounds like the kO4 is about a month away so that would be great.

But it would be nice to hear from APR about possible timing.

Not for stock turbo software, it's done.

Results look incredible.

Also interested in this. Or at least a specific tune for upgraded intercooler and piping or something along that line.
