    Stage 1 Complete - My first flash

    AEM CAI with the stage 1 AP map done, wasn't hard at all! Very happy with how the car feels vs stock!

    Don't really want to remove my TMIC to do the DP, so may get stage 2 and a protune done at a shop... anyone used Dyno-Comp in Scottsdale Az?

    You don't have to remove the TMIC to do the downpipe. I have the same setup you will have (stage 2 with aem intake) and love it!

    Made it easier for me too...The bolts took some significant torque to get off. First time they had been turned in two and a half years though so it is understandable.

    If you do take the tmic off, be careful on the bolts that connect it to the turbo. One of mine sheared off and I know this has happened to other people.

    I would advise taking off the TMIC, it is not hard to do at all... If you can do a DP, then you can remove the TMIC. It makes your life 10x easier too, plenty of room to work and do everything the right way, once.

    SIDEBAR: lots of double posts going on lately, I've had to delete 3 recently and there are 2 in this thread already. Wonder if this has to do with the server migration?
