    What up peeps.

    After my success with installing my FMIC on friday night (well with alot of help from Tom) i have now got myself booked in at JKM in portsmouth for my stage 2 software update as they did my stage 1 for me so its only a £60 cost. So roll on Friday 4pm :)

    Out of interest they have a rolling road but its only a 2wd one so which is the haldex fuse you can pull to disable it? a quick google search suggest that it is fuse 31 but just want to confirm this.

    Cheers

    Rob

    JKM have dyno'd many S3's in the past. I believe they usually go under the back of the car and pull the haldex plug instead as a safety thing. they'll do it all for you anyway so I wouldn't worry bob.

    good luck, let us know the results!

    Quick question :

    When i upgrade to Stage 2 software whats the best spark plugs to go for as i am sure i read somewhere that going for a colder grade was better.

    Secondly what colour spring is reccomended for the froge 007p on stage 2?

    6's for standard engines and mild tune, 7's for more tuned. 7's should be good for you.
    iridium just last a bit longer.

    as long as theyre gapped right they will be fine. as for getting iridiums when yours have expired (is it 20k?) then thats up to you. the fact they last longer just tells me a bit more durability, so i opted for iridium. i dont think the price difference is significant

    If you want a cheap plug thats changed regularly, use the BKR7E.

    If you want a plug you can put in and ignore for zillions of miles, PFR7Q.

    BKR7E all the way!

    £8 for a full set vs £35ish for iridium or platinum plugs, and if you do some reading up, they reckon the copper electrode dissipates heat better than irid. or plat. anyway.

    use copper ones and replace with every service :)

    Good luck and enjoy the fun. Can't wait to get a Revo stage 2 map on mine. Just have to fit the FMIC, sort out the leak from the manifold and fit the brakes. Should have been done ages ago just have'nt had the time. Might just send it into a garage to get it all sorted.

    My car was only meant to be slightly tweaked and staying Stage 1 but since meeting a few others on here at some local meets i have ended up making mine stage 2 (on a budget) most cost savings were done by fitting stuff myself (with some help) so am really happy and cant wait to see how it performs after having the software tweaked to use my supporting mods.

    Will defo post up later tonight with my results that is if i am not down the local maccy d`s doing a bit of fast and furious with the local boy racers lol

    I know what you mean. I was'nt gonna to modify this car at all until I found this site LOL. I usually do all the work myself also to keep costs to a minimum, just at the moment I don't have the time to spend a day or 2 tinkering around with the car and I really want to get this done asap.

    I've got 1 more week till my car goes for it's custom map then I'll start tempting you with the mods you need for a Stage 3 K04 car :whistle2:

    Going on the air flow results you've been getting I expect your car to make more then my Revo stage 2. Good luck.

    I've kind of made up the Stage 3 bit, I suppose it's more custom but it still uses a stock K04. This is the list:

    - FMIC
    - 3" intake with cone filter
    - Large port head
    - 550cc injectors
    - Water Methanol Injection
    - Performance exhaust manifold
    - 3" down pipe
    - Performance exhaust and de cat
    - Forged rods

    Think that's it :think:

    Large port heads are only AGU or AEB so you have a small port one.

    Meth isn't definitely needed but you wont get the best performance without it.

    All done :)

    havnt been able to do any real testing as bloody traffic was really busy but 2nd 3rd and 4th pull well over 3k rpm and thje power delivery is very linear which is what i wanted.

    Gonna head out later on tonight to my local private airfield :) and give it a proper test plus will see if i can get some logging done too.
