    Keen to know if anyone has upgraded their intercooler, gone decat downpipe, intake mods then had MRC custom map their FL RS3?

    I know Revo and APR quote this as stage 2 but I think MRC have these mods as stage 3.

    Interested to know if anyone has any figures for an MRC stg3 FL RS3?

    That's definitely only stage 2. Turbo upgrade needed for stage 3 surely.

    @Leo-RS has had the mods you mention done.

    @billymc92 had this set up some time ago with excellent results. +500hp & +500ftlbs with a downpipe, intercooler & an MRC tune.

    MRC Stage 3 is when you swap the turbo out. What you have mentioned is a Stage 2 remap. The same as APR and Revo.

    It's Litchfield who have come up with their own Stage convention by branding everything you have mentioned as Stage 3 as it aligns with their Jap tuning philosophy. In the VAG world though, full bolt ons, standard turbo is Stage 2.

    Stage 3 with turbo upgrade should do it!

    yea im thinking turbo but what set up? theres a few out there but its all about the sound for me atm. ive hit my goal of 500+bhp but now maybe 600... lol
    what turbo options are out there that deliver at a value for money aspect.. some just look over priced.
