    That's a pretty fair question. This site that I know of has lots of helpful information... click

    read through a few...

    and from what i've gather from reading some posts there, and looking up some more on the net (correct me if i'm wrong)

    stage 1 = new ecu map (maybe CAI or some smaller items like so)
    stage 2 = new ecu map (different than 1), and TBE
    stage 3 = new ecu map, TBE, Performance header

    but what is stage 3+ then? upgraded turbo? and all of the above?

    edit: did some more searching because this is bothering me, and i found a thread (page 17 of searched 25) so i guess this thread is useless now...

    Different Stages?

    ^^^ That's a pretty good start. I love it when a n00b realizes that the information is all there if you bother to look.

    This is first question you need to answer: Which aftermarket company stages are you talking about?

    Cobb (AccessPort) is different from TurboXS (UTEC) is diferent from ECUtek.

    There's your answer, learn a way.

    it all depends on what vendor you go with, vishnu, txs, cobb. .. there are like 11 or 12 different staged pakcages out there by vendors.

    Yeah, that's how I thought the standard rundown of staged mods went across manufacturers, and then each aftermarket company tweaks their own set of "rules" for each stage... I am out of town, away from my new baby, so I can't look at the damn paperwork in order to tell which program the guy used... bummin' cuz now I'm fiending to read my stuff.

    You guys will get pics this weekend since I'm going home today! Thanks for the warm welcome.
