We made this software for track duty, and encourage our customers to run the car hard. Much of the Stage 2 development was done on the Evolution Racewerks 135i, so we simply couldn't risk the car going into limp mode or underperforming in the slightest.
Thanks for the response. I come from a life of larger turbo cars and know they can be a issue. From all of my reading about this engine and tunes, it looks like most of the people that use the car for TT or other track related events run your stage 2 tune and sometimes meth and have no problems. What supporting mods are needed to run a stage 2 tune? downpipes? upgraded ic? Thanks
