I had my car flashed with the Dinan stage II software today, they are running special till the end of the month, 20% off.
So far no issues with it and the Akra system.
I only put 30 miles on it so far though.

I decided to go Dinan because they tune very conservatively, don't want to run into any issues, plus the 20% off was icing on the cake.

Stalker,

Do you have the full Akra on now? What do you think of the Dinan tune? I am having my Akra installed next Wed.

ya, full Akra.
So far the tune is good, but I have not put enough miles on it.
But after 4000RPM, the car is really alive.
I installed the Akra midpipe and the tune at the same time.

I'm not finding a stage II software on the Dinan site. Are you referring to the "Racing Middle Exhaust Software"?

I already had the Akra rear section, so I did not want to mix and match. Plus, the Akra system is exactly what Im looking for, great build quality, great sound, next to no drone, lightweight, and I love the sound.
IMO, its the best exhaust out there by far. I also did not want to run catless, the Dinan midpipe only has resonators in it.

I needed software to fix the CEL issue, and and the same time, if it will give me some more power, BONUS!!! But I decided on Dinan because I wanted a conservative tune that is safe and not run into any issues down the road.

Unfortunately no.
I will try to get one done in the next few months. I do not have a baseline though, so its not going to be a very accurate measure.
