    I think thats pretty impressive for a std VXR with a uprated cooler ( esp in this heat ) .... forget about the bhp, matters not, its the torque that counts and is impressive

    IMO the exhaust is NOW holding you back and would take you to 300/340 however as its a custom map once you have a proper full system on you would need to go again to be retuned
    Hi mate, it’s stage 2.735745837268, just the 2nd cat to be a stage 3

    I’m suspicious the problem is the turbo, tested again tonight unplugging the boost reference to the actuator and it only sees 16psi, the actuator is basically doing nothing on my engine, I would expect boost to fly up into the 20’s with the wastegate closed, I read about someone saying they bought a cheap turbo cartridge (chra) and could only achieve low boost...I am just speculating though

    Strictly speaking stage 2 is full turbo back system which is your biggest power gain. You're a kind of hybrid stage 1.5 with hints of stage 3 in the mix

    On my first Arden I had the same setup as now but with dreamscience map and it did 283, 289 and 299 on different dynos so I figured I could save my self 400 quid on the second cat section, like I say even with wastegate held shut it won’t make over 16psi and it won’t hold that for long so I think that’s where the main problem is
