    Not for me, front end is good as is. Any stickering I would ever do on the S would be on rear panel to the right of the number plate to balance out the S3 badge.

    Not a huge sticker fan, but if you're happy then it's all good mate!

    Well I had a play with a ford focus RS the other day. I was still pulling very slightly from that. there 300bhp standard. this one was mountune'd and had a decat. the focus is a heavy car like the S3 so I would guess somewhere in the region of 315bhp.

    bearing in mind I had 2 people and the dog in the car and my friend in the focus was on his own. so can't be bad!

    Reference your Shark sticker. Where did you get it from. Are you supposed to get one after the remap as a token gesture of thanks. Or do you have to goto Shark to get them. I never asked Graeme if there were any.

    I got mine from N8. not sure theyre if there given out to every customer. I just asked him for one. I'm sure any of the shark dealers will have some or be able to get your some. It's essentially free advertising for shark after all.

    PM GNJ or N8 or give HQ a call. they should sort you out.

    Nice, have you removed your pre-cat as you say you're stage 2 but is that a full turbo back exhaust?

    I have a full non resonated turbo back Milltek with 100 cell sports cat. which makes it legal for any future MOT'S

    My old exhaust standard set up has only done about 1k. it's from my 61 plate, anyone know it's value?

    Keep us posted.

    Mine drove sweet as a nut to Inters and back (450mile ish).

    Did a 4.9s 0-60 on the strip in between.

    Car feels nice, quick, and pulls to the redline.

    Speaks volumes for the map.

    I had the original stage 2 map done just before i went round europe, tackled disneyland, belgium + luxembourg and it ran faultlessly, its just the refinement that needed to be sorted, think it may be there...although when i receive more cash....someday... stage 2+ will come.

    Much improvement Shark

    Had a quick test this morning in the way to work.

    before after each gear change(when flat out) there was a noted pause after each gear change.

    Now this has gone. it's much much better.

    Happy man.

    even though Mansfield is full of traffic, traffic lights and speed cameras, it was worth the trip!

    Although mentioned in another thread, I think its important to keep this up to date.

    Update: Its been to Powerstation, Tewkesbury's 4WD Rolling Road. 15/1/2013

    Shark Performance Stage 2 = 315bhp.

    Graph to follow sometime soon.

    + Another dyno to follow showing results for the new twintercooler for facelift models.
