    Default Courtenay sport stage 2

    Just booked in for stage 2 for the 31st of aug. Wondering what other people's experiences are going from standard to stage 2. Much difference?

    Thanks

    be gentle with the clutch, stage 2 puts it near the limit.

    Other than that it's worth every penny, makes the car come alive

    Ok that's sound advice thank you.
    When you say comes alive where and what do you notice the difference in?

    to me the standard 275bhp car felt quite slow, but that was comparing it to my other car which is a 270bhp vx220

    The Courtenay stage 2 provides the missing umph, it's much smoother than the factory map and from a rolling 60mph it now starts to pull away from my vx220

    Oh yes. You won't be disappointed 😊

    Extra power is great, and the extra torque makes such a difference on fast - but twisty - third gear country roads. I love the improved sound effects too ...

    Best value for money I've spent on a vehicle for many years!

    Had mine done at Courts beginning of July, 333 bhp in a 35c hot workshop, car is transformed and the sound is amazing, you will love it.

    I hope so. I've opted to add on their turbo back full decat single silencer exhaust system aswell. Should sound amazing.

    Well been in Courtenay Sport since half 8 this morning should be ready soon. Excited would be an understatement.

    Well after a 4 and half hour drive home my verdict is the car should be this quick from day one. I thought the car was pretty quick in standard form but now the car is a whole new beast it just pulls at every RPM and any speed. It's so much quicker I can't quite believe how fast it is now. If you have any thoughts about getting it done just do it you won't regret it.
