Agreed. If you want to fix your powerband, go stage 2. There's not necessarily anything wrong with your car.. The airflow of the stock exhaust is so restrictive that the engine can't breath- My peak power runs from 3200rpm to 4500rpm, if I'm lucky. I never pull past 5k- on a stage 1 tune there isn't much point. I'm going stage 2 this weekend- I'll make sure to let you know how it feels.
