It made a huge difference when I was out in the desert in 117 degree heat, racing back and forth from hotel to shoot location because I needed to grab additional camera gear. Never went over 245.

Compared to 104 degrees prior to having the stage 2 installed when it bumped up to 255 during much milder driving.

However, I haven't tracked the car yet, so I don't know how much it really affects performance. Also, I should note that since my car was non-sport from the factory, it didn't come with the water cooler, which the dealership installed -along with a couple other items- to bring it up to spec for the stage 2.
