can anyone tell me what the stage one for the TC edition of an SS does? I've heard it increases boost by a bit...is it really worth the $650?

The kit has a few upgraded sensors. It also is a tune for the car. It disables, so I've been told, the learn-down feature, and it increases max boost to around 20-22 PSI. So the overall purpose of it is to increase HP and TQ. It also keeps your GM warranty in tack if that is important to you; it was me. It's really the only engine performance mod I will do until my warranty expires.

ADIDASS hit it on the nose. The difference in performance is quite amazing. Tires chirp in second and sometimes even third gear. If you're thinking of getting any bolt-ons like a downpipe, catback, intake, etc you need some kind of tune or the car's ECU will "learn down" back to the standard 260HP and ignore the additional power that became available. My opnion is it's definitely worth the money, especially since it keeps your warranty intact.

It depends. If you want to keep the warranty, then get it. Otherwise, there are tunes out there that will yield the same results without the need to mess with the sensors.

you guys pretty much answered what i was curious about. 340 ft lbs of torque for a 4 cylinder is pretty impressive, and disabling the learn down feature is basically awesome. plus 20 pounds of boost? pure sex

I doubt you will reach 340, moreso around 300-315. That's just off that tune that is.

Kit increases performance to 290 HP and up to 340lb.-ft. of torque. Requires dealer installation and calibration. Premium fuel required.

Thats crank numbers. It'll be a different number to the wheels.

Yeah, that's what I meant. Most people that have dyno'd are in the 300-315 range I believe, to the wheels.
