  • Question about IC/ stage 3 map

    Right not sure which way round i will do this.....

    if i get the stage 3 remap ( on sport button mode ) am i alright to drive the vxr for a couple of days without the intercooler fitted, i wnt be using the sport button mode so technically wont be using stage 3

    or

    if i get the intercooler fitted first then a few days later get the map will the intercooler on stage 2 make a power gain/difference?

    Im no tuner but if you got the map on the sports button and didnt switch it on i couldnt see the problem. And i couldnt see the problem with having the intercooler put on whilst you have stage 2, dont know what gains etc you would get theough

      You'd probably be fine at this time of year as the air is already cold, but I wouldn't want to cane it straight from traffic for example, the engine heat soak would mean the intake air was a bit hot.

                        dont know about other maps but EDS ones have multi-levels of tuning in them, if a sensor shows as being out of range the ecu switches to a different mappinbg to protect the engine (commonly known as ignition pull back or retardation)

                        You will ok for suure, as John mentioned a few posts back, at this time of year you will be OK to last it as the air intakes will be nice and cold, dont worry about blasting for x seconds, just do it and have fun
