Well the stage 2 file has been loaded and all I can say is wow. This car is now a weapon. Just need a HPFP upgrade and intake to improve the midrange and it will be perfect performance-wise.

Keep it stock or lower it? Kind of liking the stock sleeper look.

Stock ride height looks good on stock wheels.

Pictures of the exhaust system because words are just boring.

Another small update

CTS intake has been installed and sounds great.
HPFP is on order and a DSG file will be loaded to ensure no clutch slip with the stage 2+ file

Not going stage 2+?

I don't feel the extra money spent is worth the approx 25-35hp gain. The car has trouble keeping the front tyres gripping while stock....

I was waiting for this  ::) >:D

Also removing the oil neck is a very clean mod

Hahahaha. After being informed of the midrange gain I was sold.

Will look into the oil neck removal

Not really much to report sadly. Went for a post lockdown blat down to Pirongia which was great.
HPFP internals kit has been installed but that's about it on the tuning side

With the car having done 172,xxx km it's time for some maintenance to keep it fresh before more power
