My god...when did Vishnu change their stages???

You already have a catless UP. DO NOT buy the Vishnu UP. Go with the stage II reflash. Better yet, get a UTEC.

Wow - I'd skip the vishnu, get a used stealthback for $400 and a used AP for $1000 and have way more power.

WAY more power???

You mean 280 hp compared to 285??? Oh yeah, 5 hp difference...

Plus, the Vishnu is getting 280 WITHOUT a DP. Vishnu stock turbo packages including a TBE are 300 HP. 15 MORE than the AP. So what exactly do you mean...???

Cobb stage 2, you can get a downpipe for about $200 or so and I believe the '06 AP is $645. So, for the same price you have an EM that switchable and you can unmarry the AP if you plan on selling the car and you could recoup some of the cost of the AP after you sell the car. With a flash, if you sell the car, the ECU is going with it.

No, I know. But in general Vishnu products are known to be in a more aggressive state of tune than the Cobb OTS equiv. Of course anyones numbers can be BS. But no one complanes with their older "stage I" Vishnu setups. They seem to put down the power they claim.

Did anyone doubt the 300 crank hp out of their old stage I??? Not that I've seen (same as Cobb's stage II plus a pulley and more aggressive tuning). Doesn't seem unreasonable that an 06 with a pully and that tune could make 280.
