Aside from that the install went smoothly. Fired the car up, no codes or issues what so ever.

Diving impression:
I was only able to make a couple hard pulls but there is a very noticable difference in power. I am going to give the tune a couple days to adapt and report back. But so far this tune is definitely worth the $380
Since I have the USB cable, I plan on doing some logs later down the road to see how the car is reacting to the tune.

Hello RambleJ,

I just received my USB and been reading up on it, have you run any logs yet? Currently I'm running stage 1 stock settings, so running boost 4.5 is running well for you? Do you have a manual 6 speed or auto? Did you change any other settings? thanks....
