It's kind of a bitch learning how to first install/remove it, but after that, it takes a couple minutes. I'm sure someone in the area could show you how.

if anyone on here in chicago has done this before i will gladly pay for some in person guidance. i'm on the northside and have a garage.

that's if i get it of course. still trying to find out the down side of this thing. i feel like if it's too good to be true it probably is.

i think so but i don't know how to identify the sensors. i also read somewhere that having an extra hand is needed to pull it apart because it's a tight fit. i guess you also have to make sure the car is "asleep" so that's new to me too.

it's sad to say but i really don't know what i'm looking at when i open the hood on this car. i need to do more research time permitted.

you can always take it into vs motorsports, i would help, but i dont know if i would have the time to right now. Can you post a link to a install guide.

And the car in sleep mode is very important so you dont mess up the dme or anything else

yea, thats the same in as the first version. The only hard part of the project is getting your hands to fit if you decide not to take the top cowl off. The swap only takes 60 seconds if you can get the hang of it. But odds are you will break a tab in the process.

Yep, it's unplugging the TMAP sensor behind the air filter. It's a bit of a reach as it's further down.

Those run in the 400ish range? Honestly, its a good bump on power thats pretty safe and easy to deal with. That being said, if you are willing to spend more, there are a lot better and safer tunes out that cost around double that, but will provide close the twice the increase in power.

That being said, if you bought say a SSTT version one used (around 60-80bucks), its a great value.

i can get my hands on a sstt2 for $90. i figured i couldn't beat that price. for $90 i could even take it out for an upgrade such as jb4 or something without feeling guilty about wasting money.
