Just flashed Stage 1!

So, I got my Tactrix cable last night and this morning I flashed a Stage 1 map from OSECURoms.com and the results so far have been great. I expected more power, but I didnt expect everything else. My throttle response is night and day different and my boost comes on about 500 RPM sooner, and the knock at idle is gone. plus, im getting better mpg. it usually takes me 1/4 tank to make the trip to my moms and back, today i used only 1/8 a tank! I was totally scared at first but, honestly, easiest thing I have ever done to a car. worth every penny!

LOL yeah it's very easy to do! As long as you READ and have a shred of common sense anyone can do it. I just installed my DP this morning and flashed to stage 2! That will provide the power your looking for.

Something most people seem to lack these days...lol Well congrats on your upgrade, just wait till you go with a stage 2 then you'll really feel the throttle response.

Better pack a coat subies aren't known to keep you warm in the winter once you shut the heat off...
