My dyno today, think figures quoting upto 401bhp from revo seem to be a fair way away from where I'm at. My dyno hasn't even reached the minimum 370 revo claim to expect as a minimum from stage 2 with the relivant mods. As 73pops said its a pleasure to drive my car and I love it, but can't help but feel like I'm 20-25 short of where I was led to believe I'd be. I seriously think I need an rs3!

Thanks both for posting. Did you have any runs at stage 1 or skip straight to stage 2 ?

I'm starting to think that apart from the slightly improved pickup from the down pipe that I'm going to stick at stage 1 with an intake (Revo's new release if I can get one).

Thanks for posting guys. Interesting to see both similar HP but APR significantly more torue. It's yet another example of how stage 2 min gains over stage 1.

I would be very disappointed going stage 2 with IC if chasing the numbers. I'm going stage 2 shortly fully aware of this and already have intake for induction sound and DP will no doubt add nicer exhaust note. To me having nice induction sound and better exhaust note worth cost for the improved enjoyment but numbers wise and cost per hp not worth it.

Might be a stingy dyno?
Stage 1 should make 370ish by itself.

Who knows me and James said we will try and find another rolling road in the northwest and compare again. Thought awesome gti's rollers would be prity good. Anyone have any suggestions??

yeah its pretty much bang on these days and tends to read slightly lower than others.
That is a insane amount of torque you have there... i am jealous as mine made only 400ftlb on their dyno last time!

Rick @ Unicorn Deveopments in Stockport has a good rolling road and knows how to use it too, he's just had a new cooling system fitted and it's kept at a good temp.

He had a rolling road day yesterday actually, should of came down. He will be happy to run both your cars, will be back to back too.

Let me know if you go down, id be keen to see how they are compared to mine.

Thanks for sharing - very interesting !!!

What fuel are you running and is the map specific to that RON ?

I put Tesco 99 yesterday. Last time was on shell
Vpower and made more bhp

I'm always running Tesco Momentum mainly as it's also most convenient for me.

When I had my map put on they asked what fuel I was using so it has the map profile for high octane fuel and DSG which I understand to be slightly higher torque output too.

Had mine rolled again to see if there was any difference to last weeks on awesome's rollers and results came out pretty much the same so that's definitely where my cars at, so is good to have confirmed it. Met Rick from unicorn tuning and if I hadn't already had my mapping done by revo I'd definitely of let Rick custom a map for my car, guy seems extremely knowledgeable.

Was good to get a ride along in 2 identical modded cars but with different maps on each car. Good to meet you guys. Think I might try unicorns map.

So APR and REVO make just under 360bhp stage 2?

I take it that you'll rev higher with the Stronic TCU mapped,should get more power too as the revs are higher
