high performance upgrades.
For even better performance of your car, you can also choose to upgrade the hardware of your car. If the hardware has been changed, we provide special custom ECM upgrades for optimal results (hyperlink).
The most common hardware upgrade is the exhaust. For example; when using a large-diameter race downpipe catalyst, the back pressure is reduced, allowing the exhaust flow to improve. The spool-up goes faster. This is also called a "Stage 2" upgrade.
- Large diameter high-flow downpipe with race catalyst
- Optional cat-back exhaust
- Reduced back pressure
- Improved turbo response
- Increase in power and torque
For even more power, you need to upgrade the turbocharger, intercooler, etc. These are also called 'Stage 3' upgrades and require a fully customized ECM upgrade.
- Turbocharger upgrade
- Intercooler Upgrade
- Exhaust Upgrade
- Extra power and torque
- Custom Tuning required
