Default Can you instal stage 2 ecu chip without stage 1?

Can you skip stage one and install 2 directly or does it need stage one

yes you can. its not related. but having a "STAGE something something" ECU means that you have to pair it with the appropriate stage of engine parts

if you have a stage 1 ecu then have a stock flywheel,clutch,brakes,intake,exhaust,pistons,cams haft then its useless. because stage 1 ecu is tuned near the ideal tune for those parts.

car tuning is not about buying the most expensive thing out there.its the right combination of parts.

...and expect to have an increase in fuel consumption...

Lies... don't just order a chip for your car. please. take it to a reputable tuner and have them create a chip specifically for your car. and don't expect an increase in fuel consumption. I have crower 403 cams in my integra and still get 33 mpg.
