Stage 2 today, whiteline steering rack bushings, removed spacers (in prep for wheels, and cause rubbing is lame), and fresh wash.
Boy does the car drive a lot nicer. Definitely much more noticable going from Stage 1 - Stage 2 for me than it was going stock tune to Stage 1. The pull in all gears is significantly better, regardless of where you are at in the powerband. Pulling even from 2k RPM it starts spooling up quick and just feels a lot more torque'y. Very happy with the upgrade and will even look to potentially upgrade to a Custom map (or protune should i decide to add some mods).
Removed the spacers because i was bottoming out with the H&R springs, and I do want to get some 18's at some point. Also given the fact that I have some good power behind the car now and some suspension mods, I felt it was extremely detrimental to have the spacers and rub while pushing the car around corners or over bumps. It is crazy how much better the 25mm spacers look on the car though as it completely removes wheel gap, and on the stock suspension setup, is fully functional without any rubbing issues.
