Default BSR Stage 1 review

Hi guys, just received my BSR ppc.

Props to genuinesaab for getting me this product quickly and with no issues. The packaging is great. Very professional. Instructions were very simple and truly was plug-n-play.

I plugged in the PPC and followed instructions. Soon enough I was told I needed a custom tune and that I'd get one from Sweden once I synced my PPC to the BSR server. 1-5 days was the estimated wait.

BSR sent me my updated tune info ON THE SAME DAY. Very impressed. Followed instructions to the letter, process finished in approx 15 min. Also impressed.

Now the fun:

Took the car out on some residential roads with speed limits of 50ish. Night was cool in the 60-70s. Car was already at normal operating temperature, mods on the car included a custom FMIC, and open air filter. Running 91 octane fuel... ridiculously faster. 0-60 time must be 6ish or below. Unbelievable. The car was able to maintain its speed with little amount of excess gas, the acceleration is very smooth, making it easy to speed. If I floor the car, my tires screech now.

Overall, I am very very pleased with my purchase. Beyond my expectations, couldn't help but smile!
Mods (in order of completion): Open Airfilter, FMIC, ipod aux mod, boost gauge, tinted windows Stage 1 BSR ppc, painted side skirts, 2.5 catback exhaust, clear indicator lights.

Mods to come: turbo intake pipe, forge DV, suspension, brake upgrade
