    You're going straight to a stage 3?! I'm SO jealous!!

    Only kidding...well kind of!

    Yep, the stage 3ers rave about it. I think stage 1 is a huge improvement over standard so I hate to think what a stage 3 is like!!

    Enjoy your drive home tomorrow! :wink:

        its the miltek, new intercooler and a remap.

        give you about 290ish (mines 297bhp) and 330ish torque... depends on your car and the tuner you go with.

            sorry forgot to mention the cost £2500 i think from standard... if you have a miltek or already at a stage it is reduced. Once you have a map they will be upgraded FOC each time you increase a stage so you just pay for the part.

                ive honestly hand on heart not noticed a change from standard to stage2 to stage 3. If anything in standard on the motorway it has increased.

                Messing around (weekend fun) i get about 27-28mpg... doin the peak time work run on the motorway for 25miles i get 34-35mpg.

                      well got back yesterday but was to busy to get on the net and post.

                      on the way down to vxrpc a bolt came out of a coupling on the intercooler pipe, so i ended up with no boost. good job i was five minutes away from vxrpc....lol

                      what can i say but a big thanks to tony and his Mechanic but can’t remember what his name is, for the Brilliant work that they did and the hospitality, and also for letting me drive the veccy 340....what a beast...

                      the drive home was crap because i was in the middle of the 40 mile delays on the m1.... but when i did get going i managed to average 36 - 37 mpg at about 75 - 80mph.. what an improvement and the ride is so much smoother, but what i have noticed is the with sports off the drive is alot less agressive and you have to push the go faster peddle more because of the tamer mapping but when u do push the sports hell is let loose.lol

                      so the low down on what i had done
                      RARB
                      sportline springs
                      cool running stat
                      plugs
                      blue hose kit
                      blue water hose kit
                      pre cat replacement pipe *
                      intercooler
                      remap

                      * had to put this on because of the increase in exhaust gas pressure, because im running with standard exhaust at the moment until the end of the month until he takes Delivery of some more miltex systems :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

                      dump valve will be fitted at the end of the month as well, so another trip down to vxrpc to get them fitted... cant wait..

                      so im not running stage 3 just yet kinda stage 2.5. lol so havent got a clue what bhp im pushing... but it sounds quite nice as it is when on boost.
                      now it sounds like a turbo'd car.

                      the smiles just get bigger

                          As you get used to the map you'll find that there is still plenty of power in non sport mode. Keep ya foot down and let the engine rev from first and it flies off the line Still amazes me even now!

                          Glad your enjoying it though. Just imagine what it'll be like when you get the exhaust too!

                          It's been released now so you can say the name!! I'm going to get a Remus system later in the year...can't wait! I've been at stage 1 for a year now so don't worry...I'm not jealous.... :wink:
