      Published 0-100 MPH times on a Nissan GT-R are between 7.9 and 8.5 seconds.

      I'd say that's pretty impressive. to APR.

      what are your thoughts about suspension versus engine mods.. which would u do first..

      APR coilovers and sway bars i think would reduce body roll and quicker launches.. would u do that after flashing the ECU? OR would u go ahead and get the fuel pump and the intake and exhaust...

      thanks..

      see you in Auburn

      I am confused why you would post European stage three #'s but do not post the numbers for the Stage three 3 kit you have installed on Scottisha's car. Lets see some USA model stage 3 kit performance figures Dyno charts ext...............

      How about some official stage 2 and stage 2+ dynos...
      It's said info coming soon for quite some time. I would rather see info that is more in line with what most people are going to do as opposed to some euro dsg stuff that has nothing for me...

      and i want the coilovers too.. and the sway bars..

      I plan on getting as much stuff as i can before the sale ends on oct 24..

      do you guys do anything for people that buy more gear to help them out? $$$?

      Here is the route I would personally take:


      APR Stage 1 ECU
      APR HPFP & Free Stage 1+ ECU Upgrade
      VWR Intake System
      APR RSC TBE & Free Stage 2+ ECU Upgrade
      APR Intercooler

      see you in Auburn

      I would start with the performance modifications and then head on over to the suspension mods.

      Does APR recommend uprated con-Rods, or other internals for stage 3? I assume clutch is a must as well

      Pretty sure no internals will be necessary for the Stage 3 kit, that would be Stage 4 right? Like the MaxR? I know they didn't do internals on Scottisha's car.

      Definitely upgrade the clutch though. You're already pushing the limits at Stage 2+ so Stage 3 will definitely exceed what the stock clutch is capable of holding.

      Uprated connecting rods are always a plus but I don't feel they are necessary for our 93 octane file.

      I was really considering doing the same thing recently, to make this auto for the wife, instead
      of getting rid of the R32 and buying her another car. Should have done it, would have saved
      me a lot of $$$ and would have two R's today. Oh well... Wonder how much would it cost. HPA
      can do it, anyone on the east coast can do it? Anyone in the USA done it yet? Skela did it with his
      MK4 R32.

      I have not done internals. I've been running the 100 octane "beta" file for nearly 3 weeks.
      I did dyno my car before and after, on a Mustang all wheel dyno, and the 100 octane file made a big gain.
      Once APR releases all the info on their US version Stage 3 kit, and I get the production file, I'll share my results. I think you guys would be impressed.

      Personally, although there are some guys putting down some great numbers with the K04, I knew I wanted a bit more. I wanted to be at a minimum of 400 crank hp in this car, with the possibility of making 500hp depending on how much more I was willing to do. Even though there are some decent Stage 2/2+ cars out there, I knew I wouldn't be able to make the numbers I wanted, without a turbo upgrade.

      I would love to make a video along side a Stage 2+ Golf R, so you guys can see the difference as well as see the spooling of the GTX2867R turbo....I'm not 100% certain, but I think it spools nearly as quick as the K04.

      using this calculator, you can get a good idea of what kind of hp it takes to get a car to trap 117mph in the 1/4 mile.
      http://www.ajdesigner.com/fl_horsepo...trap_speed.php

      I figured probably 3620lbs, with me in the car.
