    Me again. Just after some advice really. Having remapped my car Stage 1 and reading various posts on Stage 2 (I know alot of people reckon its not worth it and go straight to Stage 3) is it possible to run Stage 2 without upgrading the clutch, HPFP and fitting a CAI. Have been asked this question many times by customers especially S3 owners and was always under the impression that the clutch wont last long and defo needed the CAI and HPFP internals.

    Stg2+ or the equivalent(I.e.exhaust CAI and HPFP plus software) is the best value for performance upgrade.

    Even at Stg2 or 330bhp and 340lbs,the stock clutch will eventually fail.

    The Sachs organic is an excellent replacement and would cope with over 400lbs of torque.
