    be a different story if it was an s3 in question wouldnt it, every man and his dog jumps on an s3 thread, anything else clearly not deemed good enough ...

    Not really the best thing you could have written if you want advice.

    Your post has been up 21 hours. Most people work and do not live on a forum.

    Have you entertained the fact that many have not got a stg2 remap on that engine? Quite a few members on here have S3s with recaps so in all fairness there would be more chat. This isn't me being biased as I have the same engine as you!

    Chill out a bit and see if anyone responds.

    21 hours exactly, been a member on various other forums and that would be laughed at, not just this thread that hasnt received any response, funny how it seems to be the certain unit in question, a mate of mine is a member on one of the mini forums and because he doesnt own a JCW just a 1.4 which he is in the process of modifying it gets little if no interest, wouldnt have thought this forum would quite follow suit.

    insurance was the issue, not my education, poor attempt at banter in all honesty soft lad.

    thats why i tried searching through the forum to see if i could find anything before posting a thread but had no luck unforuntately.

    just the individual gains as i only know of REVO themselves having once had a stage 2 sportback version running 240bhp region, just wanted a different insight in terms of day to day difference and what kind of feel it gives from stage 1 to stage 2 etc...

    i see where you are coming from in some respects, i understand it is not a popular or well sought after engine to say the least but i would have thought maybe one or two had went to stage 2 at some point but doesnt seem the case at the moment, like you say i will have to hang fire and see if someone pops up with some details.

    iv only drove 1 stage 2 1.8 revo A3
    and for me i wasnt to impresed thats just me tho
    was to smooth for my likeing i like a more aggresive map
    very fast very smooth and boosts to right up to red line
    thats all i can realy say havent lived with 1 from day to day
    im not disin revo but theres a fair few maps out there to think about 1 that comes to mind is jabba
    iv got the stage 2 in a 1.8 golf and very aggresive yet smoth and very good as a daily driver
    but again thats just my thoughts
    also you will need to uprate the fueling and exhaust and maybe a decat cia's dont add much if anything apart from exrra noise

    Love my 1.8 personally. Better economy than the 2.0, and with a remap its faster than it as well, while still retaining economy round town when you dont need the power. I recall you saying in my thread that you dont use the full rev range- is there really much point getting stage 2 in this case, as you arent accelerating as fast as you could anyway?

    i also had the thought of going stage two but funds are limited.
    with stage 2 you shuld see about 240-250 bhp. torque should be around 275 pound.
    as your car is a 1.8 TFSI you would already have a good front mounted intercooler as standard.
    you would need a CAI, a turbo back stainless steel exhaust system with a decat or a 100 to 200 cell sports cat.
    at this stage you could go for a c ustom map or a stage 2 map from the likes of APR REVO JABBA OR BADGER 5.
    Mapping has to be done by someone who knows what he is doing.
    at this stage you ight want to stffen up the structure of the car with uprated front and rear antiroll bars
    plus lowering by 40mm.
    this would ensure that you can put alot of your precious power to the tarmac without slipping off in to the hedges.
    plus some super gripping tyres like toyo proxies or yokohama if you have more money to waste.
    i hope this helps.

    haha that makes sense mate, you enjoying yours?

    there is no reason to toe it everywhere, time and a place for that carry on, stage 2 for me is just taking it to the next level and seeing how far i can take the car etc..

    Stage 1 is already at 275lbs/ft torque region (according to REVO figures), i will be putting mine on a dyno next month to see what its pushing out, the CAI i will be going for is an ITG kit and a Milltek turbo back with high flow sports cat and downpipe, when funds are available obviously, uprated suspension is also on the cards to enable stability and practicality.

    Hope I don't post too late....I' m an owner of a A3 1.8 tfsi CDAA sportback with revo stg2 ...

    I have also on the car.....intercooler S3, Dp 76mm, HJS 200 cpsi cat, 70 mm exhaust from cat back. CAI from ITG and the carbonio stgII from maf to turbo. And front brakes from Cupra 345 mm.
    The car is at about 250 Hp, with 440 Nm torque - 324 lbs/ft. What would you like to ask?

    These are the official numbers from Revo

    There are probably 50 tuned S3's or more for every tuned 1.8 TFSI, which is a shame as the 1.8 TFSI is a great engine. People will reply to what they know which is why the S3 threads take off quickly.

    If you want stage 2 go for it, you will need a turbo back exhaust system and I'd get a CAI as well if you don't have one.
