No problems so far. The extra torque is worth it alone.

Stage 2 gas mileage is quite a bit worse than stock. For one, bigger injectors, and secondly...a heavier foot, lol.

In my case stage 2 is less reliable because of the richness. I'm changing out fouled plugs every 3-5k miles. The dealer won't do anything about it, cause they can't - and won't - change the stage 2 tune without just removing staage 2 completely.

My car hates the richness. It makes cold starts harder, and cold acceleration of ANY form, mild or not, just will not happen.

I purchased my Stage II from www.cobalt-addiction.com for about 600$ CAD, installed my own injectors (via instructions form how-to section of this site) and was billed 1 hour for stage 1-2 install. So I did the whole job for 700$.

Ontario did you buy that badge from 24designs?

Then you're the only one in town with a 1 year warranty instead of 3 lol.

I installed my own injectors, and let GM do the pulley/belt and still get the 3 year warranty.

Plus, berto didn't you have to go to gM for ECU anyway?

i paid 400 bucks for my kit from 1fastlittlecar off of ebay (great seller btw) and 230 for the install...although 900 straight from the dealer seems decent, but id just order the kit if available threw him off of ebay to save a lil cash.

Im getting A little confused here. I am buying a stage 4 kit from cobalt-addiction.com. I am putting it in my self. I rebuild 1960's cameros, and fire birds. this is my first techy car, that uses a computer for many things. Now is this stage 4 going to work if i put it in myself. or am i gonna have to get the computer flashed? or can i put it in myself and then take it some where to get it flashed?

thank you

you have to send your pcm to them and they have a specific recalibration that they do for each specific kit..and then they send it back to you
