Bootmod 3 Stage 1 93 Octane

I am debating purchasing Bootmod3 and going stage 1 93 octane OTS map. Does anyone know how much power this would be? I have a charge pipe but should I wait to buy an intercooler and downpipes and just go straight to stage 2?

Stage 1 should give you 60 whp and 100 wtq

I would go straight to stage 2 for max power, we offer lots of different combo deals that can get you there

I just installed the Evolution Raceworks Catless Downpipe on my 335 and with the BM3 I chose the OTS stage 2 93 octane. I have an ER charge pipe, but no FMIC yet (it's coming soon). The stage 2 is a monster, totally worth it. I felt a serious night / day difference from the stock tune. Like spin my 10.5" rear tires loose at half throttle good! My friend said when I asked Stage 1 or stage 2...."go big or go home!" Make yourself happy....do the Stage 2

You could also get the map pack and try out the different tunes.

I'm running BM3 Stage 1 93 Oct and it's a massive improvement over stock. I haven't dynoed, but the Sport dials show 360hp and 420ft/lb at full throttle - but obviously take those numbers with a huge grain of salt.

However, the only reason I am running Stage 1 is because I don't want to deal with running a catless DP in NY. If you plan on getting a catless or high flow DP, just go big and get it now and run Stage 2.

Do yourself a favor and get a downpipe... catted or Catless, both with throw a CEL unless you get one from Fabspeed for a billion dollars.. I swap mine with the OEM cat once a year to pass emissions. Worth it to me. To each his own tho

I'm in NY the Binghamton area and have bootmod3 stage 1 93 octane tune. really love it really woke the car up. im stuck deciding what I want to do with the down pipe and the yearly emissions test. if I get the fabspeed and still fail a visual. guys at fabspeed said visual is 50/50. I also considered going catless and getting it removed and put on every year. if I went catless which one would u recommend?

They have 91 specific maps.. You can always run some octane booster / E85 to get your effective octane up.

VRSF, ER make great catless DPs. Install is not difficult on these cars.

I almost feel like it doesn't matter which catless downpipe you get being that they're really just a pipe. fitment may differ slightly on some brands but in terms of performance I'd like to assume they're all relatively similar. Someone feel free to correct me if im wrong.

i couldnt imagine R&R every year for a downpipe to pass emissions here. It's enough of a hassle with my tint. I'll be going stage 1 in the spring and that'll be good enough for me (at least that what i tell myself). Already have an intake, CP, and FMIC so the Stage 1 will make sense.

Like Carlyle said don't plan on going racing every night or WOT every day you'll be fine.

I say Captree in March or April but I guess maybe a different thread would be appropriate since this is off topic.

Just finished flashing stage 1. I can feel stock CP blowing up if i keep getting after it. Going to bite the bullet and have a new CP installed. Not sure how long I'll be able to hold out on stage 2 +DP!

Contemplating getting bm3 stage 1 with a charge pipe despite having 18 months left on the warranty and came across this thread.

I went stage 1 93 on a whim last week. Holy shit it's awesome! I need to order a CP ASAP before she blows.

Best $600 I've spent in forever! Smile lasts way longer than $600 worth of hookers and blow!

Haha. Did you replace the CP? You might want to do that first.
