Also, with regards to the diverter valve. I've thrown a weird boost code for a long time, and I'm thinking it's taxed back to the DV not seating properly. If need be I'll swap out for a DV+ to replace my Turbosmart Kompact thing I'm currently running. But I'm wondering if a DV relocation kit would solve that problem, too
Unfortunately I don't know the code, I had it saved on an old phone and with it not running I can't yet replicate it. I think it was an actual code, like p1013 or p2013 maybe. Couldn't find my old DV to replace and honestly I hate trying to work with the DV on this car because it seems like no tool fits other than a small right angle allen wrench.Is it a boost code and having boost issues or is it an "implausible signal" code for the DV? I installed the Turbosmart on my R and instantly developed a boost leak or issue of some kind, went from 30psi boost to barely clearing 25psi. Can not say it's due to the TurboSmart ye as I put the factory back on and same issue but I did have that implausible signal code for the DV and another member pointed out they did too but had no issues. I thought it might be interfering with the Stg3 software but cleared the code with the factory DV and has not come back and still low on boost.
Just thought I'd mention it if that's the code you were talking about.
nice to have but not need to have for stg2.Also, I asked the mechanic who fixed it (Erik of Erik's Import Autowerks for those near Keene, NH who need tax-free work) about FMIC and intercooler upgrades, as it's highly recommended for Stage 2. He told me unless I'm going balls to the wall or running in the desert, it's not gonna be a necessity. So that's way on the back burner
Damn forgot you had a vcds cablenice to have but not need to have for stg2.
also you're welcome to hit me up for airbag light clearing, in the future.
glad to see this thing moving again.
I actually have mine laying around somewhere, but I'll probably keep it off because my state requires front plates. This way I can throw it on if a cop is around or says something.Nice! What are you going to do about that missing tow hook cover? I need solutions to replace mine (I just made a thread about this).
Gotta stay up to date on their in house parts, tho! Some of them are solid offerings, such as the street shieldProtip: dont shop at ECS
Really? Why not? I’ve been out of the game for a bit.

But I'd recommend some kind of tow hook or tag

I definitely agree about the street shield. That thing is legit.It's all subjective. I'm biased cause I work at UroTuning. Some people have really bad experiences with ECS, but people have bad experiences everywhere. Its up to you to decide who you do/don't like and want to give your business to.
Street shield is probably the best in-house product they offer 100%.
