    Which map is a custom map?

    I'm going for an induction and the pre cat delete on my S3.
    Which map will be able to take advantage of these mods?
    I'm presuming a Revo Stage 1 is just generic?
    So what are my options? Tia

    Shark via STS is a map for your car but still only a generic tweak. I went to Shark HQ and they had mine on the rollers and adjusted my map there. I hope that was a little more than just a generic upload for how long I was there! LOL.

    Shark is up North? Any thing down South?
    What power did it yield? If spending money on an induction kit, I want it to make it's potential

    My Shark Stage 1 map is making 318hp and 466nM with a Neuspeed P-Flo CAI. I'm very happy!

    Try MRC tuning in Banbury - managed 324ps for a stage 1 map on mine - only mod was the pre-cats removed.

    Thanks. You mention pre-cat(s)? There is only one you can remove in the DP? Did/could you re use the gaskets when dropping the DP too?

    There is a pre-cat right next to the turbo and the main cat. Pre-cat removal will give better spool up and add a few extra horses (10ps on my car). We re-used the gasket on my car.
