Cool! Another guy who has no idea what they are talking about!

Most of the gains are from the hardware, stage 2 does add a little on top though and drivability is improved.

Get a DP with a CAT. If you get catless run it with the Magnaflow, is gonna sound RASPY. Get a CAT, non-resonated if you want more sound.

CW12, if you go with APR we have a full product line that can take you from your standard 200 HP all the way to over 500 HP with APR hardware and software modifications. It's an easy program to follow and there's always support through the entire modding process.

Thanks for the info actually, albeit in a snarky tone, I did not know that hardware had that much play. Makes sense now in terms of gripping the road with tires, improving air flow to the turbo and afterwards. Cheers

Arin, not to thread jack, but any idea if there will be a discount for 2.0 fsi carbonios at H20i this weekend? I ordered a p flo from MJM but I'm getting antsy and I'm going to be in MD this weekend and a free install sounds tempting.

How the clutch holds up is pretty much up to you. Stg 2, being a bit smoother and more linear, might actually be easier on the clutch if you exercise some restraint. Programs don't kill clutches, people do...

Yes, there will be! we announced the sale already, but you probably can't find the announcement as it's listed somewhere in some sub forum not really used by anyone on here (per the rules)

Is this the only two tuners you have close by? How bout GIAC or Unitronic. They're both great tunes and very good customer service from both.

PM sent.

Convenience is sometimes a factor which is why many people suggest going to the dealer who is closest to you, but I suggest going to the dealer who can best support you.

If you're doing a down-pipe, you are a candidate for Stage 2 software, which will show a substantial improvement when used in combination with the appropriate hardware.

I believe I have a solution for you that will cover the DP, the software, competitive pricing, after-sale support, and future upgrade potential,... all on par or ahead of comparable brands.

Well then I may just go Stage 2 and be easy on it until I update the clutch. I assume as long as I don't launch it or drag race it I should be fine. Normal daily driving surely can't do much harm to it and the occasional 2-3 rip. I have also discovered a very reputable shop near the what I found to be shady APR shop that does GIAC. He claims the GIAC stuff is awesome and their support is awesome. I really want APR, but don't want to deal with my shady dealer that doesn't have a working phone currently. I haven't heard much good or bad on GIAC.
