Like many decisions there is a risk/reward factor to evaluate. What data is out there to do this? Reward is the increase in power, the risk is no warranty on extremely expensive engines and in my case with a DCT, an expensive tranny. Would just like data to evaluate that ratio prior to jumping in.

Are any of these numbers available?
I have installed gen 1 level 2/meth kits on both 6mt and DCT . No issues on either trans or engines. 490whp on dyno dynamics was my number. 325whp stock. Warranty is a dealer discretion matter.
Thanks. That's encouraging but I'm looking for overall stats so I can see what my odds are of getting your results.
