Can see ecu re flashes and also view blackbox data so if you increase boost they can see it if if they want too when reviewing car for warranty work. Just an AP flash can see you up too 580ish bhp....then sky's the limits with other mods and more tuning via AP.

I'm still in 50 minds about modifying. I keep coming back to the notion that it would ultimately ruin the drivability on the road. All the junk I put on my old GTO were not as advertised, and ruined it for daily use. Ho hum.

A simple Y-pipe and Stage 1 remap, only makes it better no downside at all as far as i can see! Go for it , it took me a year to make the step and have never regretted it at all.

IMO drivability wouldn't be effect at all until you go with much larger turbos. Here's an EcuTek map by ryan g, that torque must feel great on the road. Only mods were y-pipe and remap.

Only downside is you'll want more, then bit more. But it's all worth it

Agreed. For me it's a massive improvement over stock and with LC4 gearbox update and selectable maps you have more flexibility too.
