Hi Chuck

I'm running Stage 1 at the moment. Have been for a number of months and it's great compared to the JB Stage 1 I had before. Significantly smoother power delivery but if you talk raw power, the JB was probably higher.

Currently researching FMIC, Downpipe and Chargepipes and will run stage 2 after that.

Will start with DP/CP and check the IATs to determine if I will buy an FMIC too or not.

Good to know someone in Aus with an N20 has tried it! I'v been tossing up my next option because stage one JB isn't cutting it no more aha. How's the flashing procedure go? Have you experienced any problems?

The n20 is a pretty good 4pot turbo, plenty of people have already done flash tunes on them, and I think they can handle a good bunch more just like its straight six brother.

So if you're coming from JB Stage 1, the smoothness of the power curve is the first thing you'll notice. It may not make as high peak power but it's more usable in my opinion.

Haven't had any issues at all. I pull on to the highway, shift into third and floor it. If it accelerates smoothly all the way to redline with no knocks then I'm good. (datalogging).

If you're in Bris (can't remember if you are... melbourne right?), you're welcome to come check it out.

That being said, I do have a spare JB Stage 1 here if anyone wants it. Happy to pass on to a Brisbane forum member for a six pack of nice craft beer...

Hey feng! Not in Bris but would be keen to grab your JB stage 1 if you're still keen to get rid of. Happy to cover shipping and making sure your beer supply is sorted!
