Installed the Accessport V3 and flashed the Stage 1 93, big difference! ****s smoother, turbo seems to kick sooner, car even idols better.
Decided if if I go stage 2 I'm going to have a shop install the parts and do a dyno tune. Found a shop near by and they have a AWD dyno, bonus!
My plan was to have them install the Invidia catted DP (match the Invidia CatBack), AEM CAI and swaybars/endlinks and create a custom tune for the car.
The shop said....
The Invidia catted downpipe is really the only part we don't sell. We sell Invidia products but the catted downpipe has the cat too close to the turbo and it will melt & fail over time. The cat should be further downstream to last indefinitely. In order for the downpipe & catback to mate up together the downpipe needs to have a 3" exit for the Q300 connection. We can always sell you a catless downpipe and install a HFC downstream in the downpipe to rectify the issue. This will require you to visit our facility for install/fabrication unless you have access to someone that can weld the cat in place.
You will also need a BPV which is not a part listed in the Cobb Staged Maps. The factory valve is terrible and should be replaced. Once it starts leaking is will cause inconsistent boost curves reducing substantial amounts of power. An upgraded unit is only 190 and once installed we will check to make sure boost target is being achieved.
They seem very knowledgeable and friendly to talk with... that said, what do you think?
