Nordic Stage IV in and the verdict is....

....WOW!!!

Its been about a year now since I had all of the HW required for Stage IV added to my car (i.e. Remus/Viggen Sport exhaust, GS DP, CAI, JAKs IC, and the King Cobra) and I finally got around to forking out the cash for the Nordic Stage IV SW + 3.5 bar FPR. Boy what a difference....like a whole new car. Boost spikes at well over 20 PSI in 3rd, 4 and 5 and in 2nd I can light the tires up at will. Power comes on very smoothly too.

Overall, well worth the money and having 310hp on tap turns it into a whole new beast!!


Thanks to Nick at GS for excellent customer service as well!

I really wish you could stop being so vague and give me a more concrete answer.

lol....you asked! j/k, coming from my drag race days with the Rabbit, I know how important the weather question is. Although in the case of the T7's torque requesting system, the weather should have no impact (other than heat soak if laying into WOT) on the power at any given gas pedal postion (just as it does with altitude change). In reality, on a hot day the boost should show higher on a viggen b/c it will take more boost for the torque being requested.....just like when you say drive up to 5000ft, the car will produce more boost to make up for the thinner air

Thats what I meant. I think my car boosts a higher number on a hot day to reach the same target air mass due to the density of cold vs hot air.
