    Good choice!

    I ran the OTS Stage 2 map for years with no problems. Makes for a fun DD.

    Ya, Thats what i'm going for for now, nothing too crazy, but a def boost in power, but also not sacrificing reliability to keep it as a DD

    If you're concerned about the trans, check the trans code in the engine bay. -AA trannys are the "weak" transmissions while the -BA transmissions received the RA gear widths. Personally, I don't think the upgrade made too much of a difference -- and first gear synchros suck on all 2003s . Bugeyes got a bad rap on the transmissions thanks to many abusive AWD launches. Don't drive abusively and you should be OK.


    Welcome and enjoy your Bugeye!!
