new guy with '07 GXP
« on: May 03, 2021, 08:25:46 AM »
Hello All,

New member here. I recently bought a 3,216 mile '07 GXP.

Looking for a best bang per buck recipe for "bolt on" stock turbocharger performance upgrades.

Thanks.

3200 miles?  Is that a typo?

Welcome to the forum and I'd agree that the biggest bang for the buck would have to be their budget tune.

Why so many miles!?

And yes- a tune is best bang for buck- and reversible.
Make the right choices now

The Performance tune is available from DDM Works and the budget tune may be as well. The budget tune is less expensive but isn't a custom tune like the performance tune is.
