I'm gonna get protuned by theboostcreep as soon as my tax return gets in. Harvey is in longmont, so I'd look into having him protune you if you go stage II.

    FWIW though, the car runs MUCH better than it did stock, so until i can make it up to longmont my current tune will suffice.
    Longmont is pretty close to where I live, I might have to wander that way and check out the shop...

    You noticed a difference compared to your stock car at elevation though (I spend my time between 5500 and 10000)? Stock, I feel like the car poops out a bit at higher rpms. Did you notice much of a difference in that with the ap as well? My main concern is that I don't want to spend the money on the car if I am not going to notice much of a difference, especially if the game plan is to buy an STi in a year or two.
