    What did you get in the mail or bring home for your MKVII today?

    Haven’t installed and I’m not sure I’d ever really even need stg1. Thought of getting inserts to swap down. Seems cheap enough. I guess I also realize I probably won’t go stage two due to OCD and seeing the CEL pop up all the time. Cars soooo much faster than my STG2 WRX was. feel I got a...

    Anybody have experience with BOTH Sneeky & EQT?

    I follow both on IG. SneekyTuned cars are fast. I do feel he’s got a lot on his plate and his responses might slow down. Seems to happen to most tuners as they grow.
