    Any Generation 1 AA guys upgrade to Generation 2?

    Hey guys,
    Haven't been on here or posting as much as I would like. Got into a little bit of trouble with my license so had to take it a little easy the past couple months Click here to enlarge

    Anyway, as the title says, can anyone on here share their personal experience with upgrading to the new Rotrex unit Active is using? I currently have the HKS8550 Stage 2 with Methanol kit and am really tempted to upgrade but would like to hear some personal experiences first.

    Did some searching and couldn't find anything on it...maybe a little too new at the moment. Even less so on that "other" forum Click here to enlarge (have some friends on there and ugh...don't even want to get into it).

    If I do upgrade I will definitely post some info to help others...maybe a little step-by-step documentation of my experience? I'm sure there are some others out there in my shoes!

    Have a happy new year everyone!

    No he does not. He has the 8555 HKS unit. Not the Rotrex C38-92

    Op, its looking very VERY promising. If i had an AA car, it would be on its way down to AA already. From what ive seen them put out, both on AK's car, and the new data with the rotrex, its a no brainer...

    Ya but he knows their kits...

    Also a good idea to have the AA guys chime in @Andrew@activeautowerke

    Thanks everyone. Yeah, I was planning on checking with Akash. When I first got this car I was a total newbie when it came to aftermarket FI and he really helped me out...thanks again and we have to meet up one of these days.

    From everything posted it really does seem like a no brainer but would love to see some other dynos and info from customers. If not, maybe I'll have to be one of the first! Been itching for more power but didn't want to have to completely change kits so this may be right up my ally.

    Hmm Andrew, let's work something out. Send me a PM please.

    We have shipped out our first upgrade kit last week actually to a customer in dubai. He hasn't gotten around to installing it just yet but I can promise you its a worthy upgrade for anyone who wants more power from idle to redline..

    Thanks Andrew. I guess I would be one of the first in the U.S. then if I went with the upgrade? Just sent you an email to discuss more. Look forward to hearing from you!

    Can't wait to see what you end up with! I would say you are crazy but less than 6 months of having my kit I am ready for a nice upgrade, so who knows where this will go Click here to enlarge.

    Can't wait to see some customer's dynos. I should be taking the plunge shortly too - just waiting on some nice 18s as these 20s won't cut it for this. 2-3 month wait on certin Volks from Japan Click here to enlarge . Hopefully that is a worst case situation as I would love to have this new setup in time for March.

    Oh nice! Akash - txt me tomorrow man! Perfect timing because....

    I've decided to take the plunge and order the upgrade tomorrow Click here to enlarge . Andrew - I'll be giving you a call to get my order in!!

    I would LOVE to have some 18s on by then but worst case my buddy is letting me borrow his OEM 19s until I get my 18s so I won't have the 20s on for the new kit. That was the one thing holding me back.

    I'm PUMPED for this! It was nice buying the car with the current kit on it, but nothing better then the feeling of modding yourself.
