    Getting it hyrbided. youd be looking at near 1.5k if you can diy. hybrid turbo is around £600ish then stage 3 mapping another £600. thatll bring you around 270bhp it would take off! then you need s3 gear, injectors fuel pump and a couple more things, theres loads of topics on hybrids, do a search.

    stage 1,2,3 is just "names" invented by tuners to differentiate the levels and agression of tune.

    stage 1 being a bog std car..
    stage 2 being more aggresive tuning to suit mods like fmic, downpipe, exhaust, induction, TIP etc

    stage 3 is bigger turbo's and can mean anything

    If k03s now , then the next step before going full big turbo is k03/4 hybrid, which is essentially a k04 inside a k03 wrapper.. www.crturbos.co.uk make these on exchange for example.
    supporting mods to go with this in addition to stage 2 being 80mm MAF housing and 370cc injectors (off 210/225 motor) + remapping to suit
