Welcome. I've got friends running 400-500 hp on their PT turbo so have fun tweaking. If it is an autostick you will have to upgrade the auto tranny if you are going past Stage 1 numbers. If it is a 5 speed you will need to upgrade the clutch. Stage 1 is the building block and you just go from there.

yeah, it is a slush box, only stage 1 number huhs? i was looking at the transmission temps and they really are kinda hot for my liking, i was thinking of putting a larger cooler on it. Also anyone runing water injection on these things? no one seems to make a decent cooler on these things, and that stock turbo is TINY!

one of the questions i did have is has anyone tried to get a dump of the stock vs stage 1 pcm? sure would be nice to find the tables....

Enginerunup makes a good water injector, he's pretty much worked out the kinks in that area. Heres a link to his thread on the subject: My water injection pics

The code is a very closely guarded secret around DCM. To my knowledge nobody has successfully broken it. The way it is you, can't flash a Stage 0 PCM to Stage 1. Only a company called Flight Systems can create the S1 PCM. You can probably find a used S1 PCM on one of the forums, that is how I got mine, then just sent it to Flight Systems for coding to my car for a few bucks and I was good to go.
