No its fast and fun. Traction is the enemy now. I'm also the type that would take a Honda Civic, gut it, swap the motor out and juice it with NOS. So perhaps you should not listen to me.

I know this came up in another post but couldn't find it. On the tube, I notice what appears to be the seam of the carbon- I assume this is normal, based on what I have seen on bike frames, any comments?

Totally normal. The pipe is made from carbon fabric and somewhere there needs to be a seam where the ends of the cloth meet. The seam location is a function of tooing requirements and can not be placed just anywhere.

Thanks. Based on bike frames, I assumed this was the case. Thanks!

I got the Stage 1 upgrade a few hours ago. The drive home had too much traffic to let me test it thoroughly. My initial reaction was that the initial response is MUCH better. No more "light turns green, press accelerator...wait...wait...slowly move...now go".

I had a K&N filter in my Corrado. I LOVED the sound it made when you punched the gas pedal. If it sounds much better with the stage 2, I'm in! Debating getting the intake or the Eibach springs next.

Oh what fun!

If all I use is just 92 Octane gas, Stage 2 won't do me any good, right?

It's good for maybe 5 hp tops, from APR conversation. It mostly looks good and gives you more whoosh noise on let off of throttle. But it looks really good!
