      lolz. because every UNI tuned car blows up!! Bam!


      Dude, if you're going to get your APR tune, just go it. It's not going to hurt anything to not have your exhaust yet. You just won't make the advertised numbers. The ECU will adjust for the lack of exhaust. It's cool.

      Just get the flash... Then buy a 42dd Downpipe and go to a local muffler shop and have them fab you a magnaflow catback. You'll save money and be happier

      you dont need an exhaust for an apr stage 2 tune. it's just recommended. IIRC all the APR Stage 2 tune does is remove the check for the cat so your CEL doesn't come on. Many people on here have commented about that...i might be able to find the thread where we were talking about it...but afaik, thats the only difference between stage 1 and 2 for APR.

      only reason why i WOULDNT get tuned at a shower. they dont save the records of what cars they tuned. trust me i had this happen to me with Unitronic. i had a problem where i had to get tuned back to stock and they werent able to find me in the records. plus most shops do the same doscount during these same time of showes..

      have fun trying to get that exhaust to fit. You will probably spend around the same you paid for it getting it fitted

      because a buddy of mine bought it for his MK4 and it was terrible and did not fit at all. The exhaust shop had to cut it up and re weld it to make it fit.
