  • RPM 2.0T Stage 3 ECU Tune
  • RPM 2.0T Upgraded Charge Pipes
  • RPM 2.0T Hi-Flow catted Downpipe
  • RPM-K04 Upgraded Turbocharger
  • TURBO TO DOWNPIPE COPPER GASKET
  • GM 3BAR LNF SENSOR UPGRADE
  • ECOTEC SPECIFIC DOWN STREAM O2 EXTENDER


I don't currently have any performance upgrades. I don't plan on getting a CAI because everything I read is it is a visual upgrade and doesn't impact performance.

I am in MI and I drive the car every dry day from May-Oct.

Lastly if there are any tips or tricks to installing this kit or any tools that make install that much easier I want to hear about it!
I'm doing the Stage 3 kit right now.
As others have said, replace all rubber/silicone hose connectors with new ones and stainless T-Clamps. Upgrade your intercooler... it's under $600 and maybe 2 hours of labor.
