    with an FMIC and a downpipe / decat and a B5 TIP that sounds like a stage 2 spec to me, With the additional kit you should see 280bhp from a healthy revo st2. the difference over stock will be absolutely night and day!

    Is it worth fitting a decat with a standard exhaust, or does the rest of it restrict it too much?
    I dont want it too loud.

    I've been told STD exhaust from cat back is non restrictive or very little .... Only good gains is from uprated manifold, downpipe and de cat or sports cat.

    cat back doesnt make much if any difference at all unless you are running quite a bit of power, 300+ ish.
    the restrictive part is like you say, the downpipe and cats.

    to the OP, 280 is what you should hope for if your car is healthy.

    Have you done the diverter valve? I got a revo stage one and forge 008 diverter valve done at Inters and took a second off my 0-60.

    Shark Performance Stage 2 map will take you to approx 265bhp just with performance exhaust including downpipe and sports cat so with the rest of the other mods 280bhp is about right.

    Has Ben wardle (shark) written a map for the stage 2 mods yet??? I think would have to be live on his dyno at Mansfield but the OP is in isle of man. I think revo would be the one for him.

    The 008 has allen bolts around the top that apparently makes it easier to service. If you have a 007 its not worth the upgrade as not much difference really.

    Here is a linky with some good pics, If you scroll down it shows both for comparison:-

    Yeah he has as the figures quoted in my last post are for Stage 2 with performance exhaust and sports cat. A RR session would be the best idea to get the best out of the map but can be done without it.

    You can get that done on the Island as Viper Tuning is based over here and has just done my mapping after getting the mods done here to by Paul at South coast Performance.

    yeah one of my friends gave me his number and said to give him a shout i havent yet, but i spoke to him about a stage one map and he was wanting around the same money as big name compaines where you are getting it put on the rolling road etc so i wasnt too keen on that really but its an option thanks

    Just got his bill today and your right he is not cheap!! Does seem to know his stuff when it come to custom maps though if you google Viper Tuning and look on the RS4 forums they always seem to speak very highly of his work. But as you say if you can manage the boat trip it is tempting to get it on a rolling road.

    He normally quotes £400 however I am guessing as mine needed the extra chip soldering on to the ECU and more time than normal in the car the bill has come in at £500!!!

    jeez that aint cheap then. I think ill just take it to Revo when ive collected all the stuff they want 400 too but its done on a rolling road.
    Did you get your 3" dp and decat made over here?

    why would an S3 need an "extra chip soldering in"? They're flashable from the factory...

    i think he said summat about its was a 512k ecu but they just soldered in a 1024k chip then tuned it as a wideband?
    Erm... is that even possible?
    I dont know..

    Rich at Viper knows his stuff, if you are the Island then goto him!

    He may have put an encryption board in. Don't compare him to Revo, it's all custom work and is in a different league.
