Great review , this will be on my mod list at some point . Definitely would like a bit more power from my current IE stage 2 tune.

Mine has been solid, i beat the piss out of my car, and its been running strong. Developed a kind of whiny sound like when K03s start to go bad, but its on the opposite side of the engine bay so im 99% sure it has something to do with my pod filter, not the turbo. WalkerT did some borescoping after multiple power runs on a dyno and a ton of street time and said the turbo looked good to go as a quality part. If you take a look at the top of the thread youll see them
FWIW when I installed my IE K04 (Borg Warner), I immediately noticed a noise similar to what you're explaining....I thought the turbo was bad, but I think it may have something to do with the fact that these K03+/K04's don't have a turbo muffler like our stock IHI's.

I am currently on APR stage 2 I'm looking for options for turbo options since my current turbo has wastegate rattle, was there a significant difference in power on APR stage 2 tune? And is the turbo still holding up well?

ehh you will free up about 10-15hp to the crank i think based on butt dyno, getting an actual tune from someone is going to be your best option if you want power
