    are you trackdaying? cannot see why you would need more power than we have other than doing trackdays and the site says it'll give you ten to fifteen percent more power but I would question that and I am very biased to revo

    Hoping to do the odd track day, but thats not the real reason for considering it.

    I have seen quite a few of the LCR boys have the stage 2, with the 4bar FPR etc. And read somewhere that the stage 2 holds the power further through the revs.

    And at only £50 + vat and a 4bar FPR it caught my interest. Also i have the other mods they recommend, and wondered if this map helps to make the most of them.

    Cheers

    S3Izzo had a stage 2 remap on his S3, I think he's sold it now and bought a new S3. He'll be around on the 8P forums if you need to ask him about it.

    Thanks for your input Andy, Confirms my initial thoughts of the power beeing smoother, and holding longer.

    Cheers

    My car came with Stage 2 already loaded on it (but I have the receipts etc confirming the work was done) - i'd never driven the car with stage 1 so don't really have any input.

    The car drives well although I haven't driven it for 4 months now as it's just in a warehouse gathering dust :(

    The cost of the software upgrade is minimal - the expense comes from the hardware upgrades that are needed to go with it.

    Although you could just get away with a 4 bar FPR most companies I spoke to recommended a full exhaust system, intake, sports cat and FMIC to get the most out it - personally if you were going to spend that much on hardware i'd get a custom remap done, not a generic one.

    They offer a Custom remap for £480 + VAT - this will allow you to taylor the map to your requirements (Limiting the RPM etc), this should be done on a rolling road to get the most out of the modifications you have.

    My 8L S3 feels slower than my 8P but then i'd expect that to be the case, won't be a huge amount in it though in real terms, i'd say my old one handles much better due to the suspension.
