stage 2 requires the use of an aftermarket downpipe, which you have....go ahead and use stage 2

Not trying to be an A$$ but this has been discussed alot, and it varies from car to car, and the area you are in. If you get a protune you will also see more of a gain over an OTS map. That also depends on how agressive you get your tune.

That depends on your tune's results.

Those are crank horsepower ratings, but on there site they show wheel horsepower when you look at the dyno charts and I can't for the life of me remember what type of dyno they were done on.

yeah i was going to say 280 awhp seems really high for just a stg 2, well i got my tbe on and stage 2 done a few weeks ago, I LOVE IT, now i just want to make if faster. i had a lot of problems with boost oscilation when i got it reflashed. i tried adjusting the wastegate arm and it didnt work it just increased the spike or decreased it accordingly not fixing the oscillation, so i just went with a mbc set at 15, being careful of the ptfb issue. i know i could ###### turn it up a little b/c i run 93 octane but im just going to wait until i can do some logging. and also invest in a wideband o2, where would anyone reccomend putting the probe at? could i put it right after the turbo on my dp? thnkx
