I did stage 1 before the accesport was made....a better deal if you are going to stay stage 1 than the accesport. If you are going to stay around the stage1 level, you can try grounding wires and the 3/8 tube (I think) mod and up (and maybe dp) for the price of ap and get similar results (no I don't have physical proof and so it is an 'opinion'
) your labor=free
I was going to stay stage 1 but now I have somehow ended up with stage 2 and some extra parts so if you are a mid level modder than ap is a GREAT deal. I think the real nutcase wrx'ers want more finetuning.
