Haha, opinions are like a$$holes everyones got one, I shared mine. even if you didn't like it. your welcome.
Heres another one, if your going bigger injectors, don't f#$% around and get a stge 2. If you plan on staying stock injectors your best bet will be a stg 1 because you will lose driveablity, low end and probably mileage with a bigger turbo. Even if you know a guy who liked his stock sticks with a pmax...
If I planned on staying with stock sticks I'd get a ported manifold before a larger turbo, reason being, nice egt drop/more power without driveability lost. And possibly cheaper depending on the route taken.
FWIW,most people wont admit that they did a mod and weren't really happy.
IMO of course
PS. if you want opinions on the stg 1.5 ask if there are any people running a pmax with a billet wheel, you'll have more responses. That's what I was running and didn't like it with stock sticks. Next question to ask yourself is are you ever actually going to get bigger sticks?
