Hello,

The "unit" that is of concern is the stock ECU. So it works as well as the stock ECU...

dunlop you don't leave the ap unit plugged in. You only use it to flash for a few minutes then remove it.

I live in Albany NY and it's 10 degrees (F) outside tonight. I've had the AP Stage 2 on my '05 since mid December and have not had boost spike above normal even once. It's onbly been 30 days and about 1500 miles, but so far this is the best car mod for $1800 I've ever made (and I've made many).

I would assume that is the AP and the TBE exhaust plus shipping/installation. The Cobb Stage 2 with catted TBE is $1690 from their site.
