edit, KMA2 nice choice on the BPV. i am running the yellow spring on mine. got it from BMS as well
I was under the impression that a CAI didn't make a huge difference at stage 2. I'd be interested in learning more tho, so definitely respond back once you figure it all out.

Regarding the bpv mine came with a blue spring installed, and a yellow and red packaged separately. I heard everyone was using the yellow (and some talk about a green too), but I didn't know if I should stick with the one pre-installed or not. A quick and dirty "squeeze" test had the yellow and blue very close in tension. They are the same gauge, but the blue has another coil or two. Is there a manual anywhere you've found? Thanks!
