:facepalm: anybody who knows me here knows that I was joking, I would never maliciously take a swipe at someones build small or large like this. I have some plans for my car for next spring body wise but this is still very intriguing and look forward to seeing the end results of this :beer::wave:

Sweet build. I noticed you had the APR v3.1 tune with your k04. Why didn't you got APR GTX turbo instead? Not enough power?

Isn't the APR stage 3 and 3+ still canned tuned? If I was going BT Id want a tune designed specifically for my car. Who knows how refined their stage 3 files are.
