Ready for Stage 2
 
So I just bought a Cobb DP, and I'm all set and ready to go to stage 2. I'll be putting it in this weekend and I can't wait. I really don't know what to expect, but I can't wait to have near STi power in my leggy. I'm be running a cobb DP down to a spt CBE, and with a OTS Cobb tune. I want to eventually want to get it pro tuned by Bren, but that's after I replace my vf46 with a vf52. That will be much later down the road. Anyways, I want to hear everybody thoughts on stage 2 and what should I expected? I've been read the forums and alot people say it's a totally different car. All the hype is killing me, can't wait to put in the DP. Feels like Christmas day in November!

It will spool sooner, and make more peak power. You might say that your upgrade will be much later down the road, but these are words uttered before the Mod Bug bites you.

Haha I think the mod bug bite me already' I'm dying for a set of gravels!

Stage 2 feels great. The hype is all real... though I'd be willing to bet, based on past reading, that while you'll be very happy with a Cobb tune, getting a pro tune or open source from Infamous will net you even more smiles.

I been running at OTS Cobb stage 1 for a couple of months now, and I definitely notice the difference from stock. Power feels a lot smoother and more evenly laid out thru gears.

I would include a better than stock IC for a peace of mind along the stage...

Doing the exact same thing + an up too in the next week or two and I can hardly wait. Definitely want to hear how this turns out for you!

sell your access port :) I got rid of mine for open source, Bren tuned my 07 with a vf52 made 334whp @ 375wtq..

either way you will love stage 2.

Yeah, I'm kind scared of the plastic end tanks myself. I was thinking of an avo tmic or ipr tmic when I do get one.

Oh man, those are sexy numbers man! yeah, I was thinking the same thing; sell the ap and go to Bren. But I think ill only do that after I got vf52. Still this is like, 4 years down the road I hope. Hahah! What support mods are you running on the vf52? Upgraded tmic, injectors, fuel pump?

:whore:
Going from an OTS Stage 2 tune to an infamous stage 2 tune was like going from stock to stage 2 all over again. It was just so much smoother and better driving. Way worth the money especially if you don't plan on getting it protuned for that long down the road.

I just wish I would have known infamous can't do e-tunes with ap v1 before I bought it. Definitely would have paid the extra $ for v2. Oh well, anyone know if PDX or somebody else can tune via v1?

They have a trade in program for the V1
