    Turbo owners....how do you like Full Res IR's = worth it?

    1) Is it worth it, sound wise with Full res IR's? 2) Does it make you have to leave stuff out, even with more power under hood (because of Full res IR use)? 3) Don't you wish it were C3PO gold to more easily reflect that you are better than us normal turds, owning mere regular AX3's?
