Put mine in last night. The transmission learning thing is boring! 'Taint easy finding a stretch of road to do this either. Didn't think I would ever finish it! Of course, I did finally, and what a hoot to drive. New tires go on next week to get rid of these useless Badyears! I'm getting Yoko AVS ES100's in the stock size, since the stock GT rims are only 6" wide and with the cost of the Stage I, Mopar BOV and new tires, the budget is fried for new wheels too!

A report will be coming tomorrow on the track gains with the Stage I!

Thanks for the offer. I will be out of town for the next 2 to 4 weeks. They will probably be posted by the time I return.

Hope you get some good weather to try it out. It is looking like the drive out to Houston from Georgia is going to be a wet one for me

well, driving around all day Sat and I have picked up a very BIG intermittant miss at all or any RPM? Ran outa time today to check plugs. Wires seemed seated ok. Could loose vacuum lines cause this? Can't really get a feel if this is a upgrade or not with this[:I].

OurPTGT,

Don't know what to say. My guess would be a loose vacuum hose, too. Check the one below the turbo inlet. When the boost gets up there, it can blow off. Mine did that with the MBC once, when I over juiced it.

BTW, I am boosting to 14psi in 2nd & 3rd, dropping to about 12psi as it nears redline. I get 10psi in 1st with no drop when it shifts to 2nd. I love it! No problems so far, knock on wood!
