Default Flash Stage 1 or 2??

I have been running a cat-back 3 inch exhaust, and from up pipe back is stock but all 3 cats have bee removed. I also have a intake, and was wondering how I should flash my car. I was going to do the standard stage one with accessport but people are telling me I can go stage 2 do the "catless tbe". Has anyone ever done this?? Or is it an awful idea....thanks

It should tell you the mods you need for each one but stage 2 would work just fine for your mods

What type of intake do you have? You have to have a cobb intake to flash a cobb map. Read their map notes on their website.

How exactly did you remove all three cats?

I have a cobb intake. And I took off the pipes, used flex drill bits and a hammer with pry bar to knock out the cats.

The removal of the cats has no bearing on which stage you flash to. If you're running a stock downpipe, your best bet is to stick with a stage 1 reflash.

Go with stage 1 unless you wanna do some damage. Cobb specifies a bellmouth downpipe as the crucial component of stage 2.

Are you sure about this? Just bought a divorced DP.

Just stick with stage 1 to be on the safe side and I'm pretty sure the performance gains of running a bellmouth or divorced DP is all completely subjective.
