Default turboxs UTEC stage 1

Finally installed my UTEC after letting it sit for around 4 months! It's revision 5a w/ 3.1 software i believe. Anyway, i downloaded the stage 1 93 octane basemeap from turboXS and finally got on my way. It took a few miles of road tuning and getting out to adjust the boost controller to get the boost right where i needed it (around 16 psi).

First impressions:
The car feels a TON smoother. No more of that "jerk you back in your seat" feeling when the turbo woudl kick in around 3000. Just smooth, silky power all the way until redline.
The car feels faster all around. Very torquey....and turbo lag is a thing of the past, even with 3 cats still in place.

Only other mod present on the car besides the UTEC/boost controller: Blitz nur spec axleback

btw- i had to take off my blitz SUS intake to install the UTEC because i did not feel like tuning the UTEC itself. I miss the sounds and the reduced turbo lag
