    I'm sure I have mentioned it on another thread, but none of 300-500whp optimas are active on the forum. Let alone, most don't even have an account here. Try joining LAP3 Performance Discussion Page group or K5 Optima Nation. There's a ton of people making 300whp+ with LAP3 Stage 2 ECU tune and above.

    Please stop constantly trying to direct traffic away from this forum to your Facebook groups.

    You came on as a paid advertiser here representing LAP3, and decided to stop paying to sponsor this forum.

    Now whenever someone asks questions about performance, you link your Facebook group to direct them there, instead of answering their questions posted here on the forum.

    While David is correct that a lot of the big turbo and high HP Optimas use a few Facebook groups, there are a few of us still here. Many still use the forums for previous research as FB sucks at that. I wrote a large well documented thread here about the boosts you get some certain aftermarket upgrades outside of a real tune. The top two, I will tell you are an upgraded mid pipe and an aftermarket intercooler. What other questions do you have?

    It is true that not many of these 300-500whp Optima owners use this forum. If you have a legitimate answer for the OP, then go ahead. I don't think any of your input is helping though. ie. your response on other performance pages regarding the External WG upgrade? You can clearly see I provided enough information for the OP to understand what EWG upgrade does, so you can't tell me I'm not answering questions. https://www.optimaforums.com/forum/1...dvantages.html

    Even if it's not your strongest suit, you can still learn from other people's posts. I mean you are quite active enough to know better. Unfortunately, the forum doesn't have much information regarding the EWG upgrade. Perhaps I should start a thread with more details.

    Nice passive aggressive response, trying to make me out to be wrong here, and make it sound as if I don't know what I am talking about when I post on the forum here, nice one.

    The post above you reference, I mistakenly read the OP's response as "electronic" and not "external" when referencing the wastegate.

    I'm sorry you felt my response was not helping, but I have been a paid sponsor of this forum for over 6 years and have helped hundreds of members here, countless times over the years, so don't come at me like that.

    The bottom line, which I specifically address in my response, and you completely ignore in yours, is that you are constantly directing members of this forum and traffic coming to this site, to your own Facebook groups in an attempt to gain business and sell parts. You are very vague in the fact that you represent LAP3 USA and are coming on here as a vendor using a regular members account. That is the actual issue at hand, and if you choose to continue doing that, I will do what needs to be done in order to ensure that members of this forum are not constantly directed away from this site in order for you to try and earn business.

    If you want to sell parts to members as a business, or a member representing a business, feel free to pay to advertise on this forum, as other vendors like myself do. If this is such a dying platform that you are not interested in sponsoring or paying to advertise on, maybe you shouldn't keep coming in here and trying to direct traffic off of the forum, as I am pretty sure that that is NOT allowed here.

    Sounds like you were banned for a reason, but I could not tell you, since I was not involved with that. I would suggest not directing traffic away from this forum each time you come here to comment, or the forum admin may look into it, & end up banning you here too.

    Can't take all that much. Mine made 271hp to the wheels with ONLY the LAP3 Uncle Chip, HKS plugs and catch cans...and the last 2 don't add anything.
