    Basically Martin, Stage 1 is a remap on its own, Stage 2 is remap and exhaust and Stage 3 is Stage 2 plus intercooler and different map. There are variations but thats the basics.

      Stage 1 = Remap (+25/30 bhp)
      Stage 2 = Full Milltek or Magnex exhaust + Remap (+40/45 bhp)
      Stage 3 = Full Milltek or Magnex exhaust + Remap + Larger intercooler (+50/60bhp)

      All rough guesses. :wink:

            Price wise look at websites but courtenays will do a standard to stage 3 for £2610, if I remember right. But thats for a 22-24% increase in power, which when placed against cost of car is pretty fair I'd say.

            Petrol use after all depends on how often you floor it in sport and how you drive in general. Been running mine for last couple of days now and tbh can't see any major difference. Only change is I have to use 97, whereas in the past I could use 95. Still averaging around 28-30mpg normal driving, fun driving probably around 19-24mpg.
