  • stage 2 to stage 3 much difference?

    Was just wondering how much better car pulls n runs at stage3 compared to stage2 thanks

  • #2
    i think its a massive difference mate. I wasnt expecting too much from it but after i had my intercooler fitted i was shocked!! It just pulls so hard through all the gears!! go for it if your thinking about it

      For me there wasn't a huge uplift in power, this is was just another 12-15bhp at peak. But its the torque throughou tthe re range that makes the car now super driveable.

      This might sound made but its almost diesel-esque in that it seems to pull from right low down, with virtual no turbo lag.

          Im thinking about going to stage 3 with cooler and inlet cam. Will I loose that 2k Pull I have at the mo?

          Also does it pull harder from higher up the rev range?

                Won't work as it will take a few miles to adjust the ecu but good thought

                        think i would always go custom mapping getting fueling etc right, know a few guys over here have had problems with mainland handheld maps if i had problems i would rather taik to someone face to face as opposed to over phone speak to the tuners over here see how they sell themselves the top 3 are all pretty much the same.

                          Inlet cam will loose your responsiveness below 2k but huge increase from 3k onwards.

                            I know some Northern Ireland owners struggle to get fuel better then 97RON alot of hand helds are designed just for 99RON. Speak to the tuners about this inspecific whether they can cater for 97RON.
