I just found out about this. Thought I would share it with everyone. Stage 1 + 2 maps are already out and ready for download through Cobb.

Looks nice, BUT, they dont show any dyno numbers or improvements. Imma have to shoot them an email and see what are the HP gains (stage 1 vs stage 2 ect.)

They do give you the HP and TQ gains. They are Stage 2+SF (MTv200 on 91) is +11% HP/ +10% over stock. This information is on the page labeled map notes.

Added:

According to their dyno information: (Roughly 3800RPM range)
HP - 250 +/- 5
TQ - 295 +/- 5

Then of course if you are not hitting the target boost or over shooting target boost they have added new maps for LWG and HWG duty cycle.

I'm so tempted to get this as my next mod...I'll wait until there are more reviews out for it though...I'm going with the 93OCT Stage 1 map, I'm not expecting a big gain in hp or tq from the Stage 1 AP map without the intake. I'm hoping for better throttle response though...

So the notes on the web site show say about a 10% HP increase, but I just got an email back from Stephen Le at Cobb saying:
"We have been seeing roughly 5-10 HP through out the powerband, but torque remained about the same"

Has anyone put this on yet? There's a big difference in a 10% increase and a 10 HP increase

The 10 HP you were quoted is only what the intake adds to the Stage 2 map. The map notes are 11% over STOCK. (Meaning going from stock to Stage 2 with intake = 11% increase)

I can vouch for the 11% because I am stage 2 and if I only gained 10 HP then I wouldn't still be enjoying it.
