    Hi, everyone in less than 3 weeks I will do a K04 replacement that is smoking, and would want stage 2 map on her, since I had downpipe, 120 cell and all the hoses replaced. my first question is how much do they charge at AMD Essex for stage 2 Revo, I had my stage 1 from them last year, and secondly would they do the stage 2 without having a FMIC? I know I have two small ones as standard but funds are not available for a big FMIC, so they would have to do for now. thirdly what figures would I be expecting to see on a good day, before heat starts to soak in. ignore the doubted torque mentioned in the sig below. :)

    thanks for your inputs.

    Thank you guys, and you would know figure wise? did you feel the difference, I understand it is not as obvious as standard to stage 1 but surely you must notice something..

    I went to AMD and had a 007p dv, panel filter, and stage 1 map and got 255hp. ive just been back there last month to have a forge TIP and all boost hoses, full milltek system race cats etc, 4 bar fuel pressure reg, cone filter, and a stage 2 map and is now producing 269hp, mine is running fine with out the fmic, alltho i will have one fitted before the summer comes.

    Stage 2 should have fmic and mods else its not the right code for the mods..
    simples..

    I woudl not have flashed a stage 2 on a car which did'nt have supporting mods.

    Revo's stage 2 map is not coded for a FMIC though. Revo said it is not required but would obviously benefit the map.

    like i said, no problems from mine, as an fmic does not actually gain you bhp, for road use imo, i think your ok until you get it done, obviously track days etc are another ball game

    Hows the n75j working on yours now as your Revo stage 2, you hit limp mode. I just installed one and hopefully going Revo stage 2 in next few months and want to keep my n75j valve

    I put it on mine on the weekend and it defiantly made a noticeable difference. My car spikes pretty high but holds more boost than before all through the rev range.

    I think my n75 was dodgy anyway but it has made a very good improvement to my car, just hope I dont hit limp mode

    If you could that would be ace.

    I hate the sound of the S3 exhaust as standard, cannot hear anything from the inside, just loads of turbo spool on mine lol.

    Upload it or PM when you do one

    Can not afford it at the moment, I thought about it, just don't have another 450 for hybrid and at least 300 for a different map, this was the easiest option I guess.

    cannot believe your still rolling with that signature 312 lbs/ft of torque is simply not do-able on a remap

    Very nice looking car, and love the sound, I wish mine would pop like that, but it doesn't I dont know why maybe I don't have enough pressure created or running too little boost for the 3" system, Dave which cruise control stalk do you have is it VAG or after market one? I have one on from previous owners, and I notice the chnage in torque when it is activated, so I was wondering if it along the same line as yours.

    sorry but thats just wrong
    higher boost, and they say it does'nt need FMIC?

    thats trying to sell software if ever I heard it
    ill advised

    why ask more from the car than it can effectively cool?
    it will go slower..

    makes no sense to me
