hey every one. i just got the apr stage 2 reflash with all the goodies , testpipe, security, the works. but i seem to have lost power. now ive been in contact with the dealer i got it from and they said that i should leave it in 93 octain setting and the chip will learn and progressively get stronger with more horsepower and torque. am i being fed full of crap or is this true give me some responses with problems or success you have had. and i have looked for an hour today on this topic and haven't found one. ( and dragon im sure ull find the one i can't) just to put that out there he's a surffing geru

Any check engine lights?

The loss of power: Is it a 'severe' loss of power? This would indicate you are in limp mode.

If it's a loss of power at speed/ WOT- sometimes it's just a matter of tweaking a few setting (A/FMix/Timing&Boost).

Did the APR fuel pump come w/ the list of goodies?
