I agree. I own a 2000. Put in APR at about 15K. Replaced with GIAC at
about 45K. Now at 70K. Turbos are fine. Upgraded bypass valves. Weird
very intermittent EPC and CE codes. Looking to sell / trade for a 2004.

Yep, and I put a GIAC-x in at 8k miles. I'm now at 35k miles and no
problems (yet). Turbos are getting a little louder but hard to tell. I
just swapped my GIAC for an Abt....so I'll now be running Abt.
