hmm i switched between the crackles and non crackles tune and i think it took a couple minutes... it was quicker than the initial flash but it isnt really an on the fly quick imo.

We typically run NGK BKR7EIX, and R8 coil-packs.

I think there are a few people running without a TCU tune, but it would be wise to do get one. Pick your poison.

Cobb doesnt offer a DSG tune yet so there for Stratified cant offer one either.

My recommendation for tuned cars is 1 step colder plugs gapped to 0.026". http://www.stratifiedauto.com/index....roducts_id=757

How does everyone like their strat stage 2 vs the OTS stage 2. I’m on the fence about k04 or just get a strat protune. I love the k03 low end kick and quick spool when cruising at low rpm. I’m not really one to crank through the gears to redline. But I just got my intercooler and pipes in the mail today so this weekend Its going on. Then thinking about just getting a strat tune. Right my my boost gauge is only reading 15psi at sea level ���� but I’d like to push the ko3 more with the intercooler up grade now. As much as I’d love to jump on stratified CTS ko4 deal but I believe it ends tomorrow and it’s just now enough to time for me to think about it.

Night and day difference between Cobb ots and their flash tune. A custom tune will only yield more performance. A k04 should act similar to a k03, just with more power all around and more top end

NGK lists these two spark plugs for our cars:

BKR7EIX - Iridium - 0.031" Gap
PFR7S8EG - Platinum - 0.031" Gap

Both of these are a heat range 7. No real explanation as to choose one over the other on their website. They do however have on suggestion, "A good rule of thumb: use one heat range colder for every 75–100hp added."

Wouldn't that mean if you are stage 2 to BT use a heat range colder which is lower? Or is colder in the spark plug world a higher heat range number?

Ordered my Stratified tune this week! I'm coming from APR Stage 1 v2.4 and it was utter garbage. It was fast, but had SO many drivability issues.

Congrats! You won't regret it. & we're not fresh to that here. You're one of many who made the switch for the same reason!
