Default 2004 Stage 1 Works Great in 180hp Turbo Lite

Finally got the 2004 Stage 1 for my son's turbo today. Dealer added the PCM in about 10 minutes, ran the quick learn auto transmission program and delivered the car to me. The 180 hp turbo is completely transformed into a rip roaring full stage 1 machine. Performance is identical to my 2003 Stage 1. Now we know for sure!

That's great news esp after all you went through with the 03 stage 1. I'm sure there will be huge interest in your results.

I take it the AC works now?

Thanks for posting your results.

Dealer 89.00 to add (1 hr). And yes, when ones hp increases by 30% it is truly night and day!
