    Yes, very pleased. That’s not to say I didn’t like the Revo map on my last one. But it does feel like there’s more torque and outright shove this time.

    @D0C I’m seriously considering going Stage 2 via MRC with my RS3 saloon - been having a read and getting moist haha

    what was the damage £ for what you had done ?

    I don’t fancy a downpipe or a full intake system, as I’m not wanting loads of racket

    have a panel filter already too.

    so looking at similar to you, tunes, intake elbow and hard pipe

    £1400 all in.

    Was something like £650 for stage 1 tune, £250 for gearbox map, £120 ish for the hardpipe and same for elbow. Then VAT on top.

    I’d been told by a few people to not bother with downpipe. However, the intercooler would have been nice. But then you’re doubling the cost I’ve just given and I also couldn’t leave my car with them long enough with the whole coronavirus.
    I can assure you though that the car is now brutal!

    Thanks @D0C

    I’m thinking the exact same mods too.
    I don’t want the intake noise I do too many miles and I know it would be great when full throttle but all other times it would grate on me.

    I might go for the intercooler though if I can stretch it (same position as you - have half the house torn apart doing jobs during covid lockdown and now need to piece it back together haha)

    @D0C did you ever race a stock pfl when mapped? Curious to see how they compared on the road

    Afraid not. But take my word for it, it was another level completely performance wise.

    Doc do you mean dont do the decat? As it does add on 1k (parts and labour) and im tempted not to do it on stage 2. Dont want rhr extra exhaust noise

    Im stage1 mrc just now but looking at stage2 with the forge intercooler.

    Hardpipe for induction kit? That sounds decent price as i would quite like more induction noise rather than exhaust

    Yes, I was advised (By a few people) not to bother with downpipe. Even Doug at MRC said not to worry about it but to instead get the intercooler as he can up the boost.

    I got the panel filter, inlet and turbo hardpipes and stage 1. More than enough for day to day driving ;)

    Interesting. I think i got 485 bhp
    Wonder why/if the inlet and turbo hard pipes are really needed or if its just the intercooler that really makes the difference. Could be a grand well spent getting one. I think i need some.power lower down the rev range.

    Did you get any more induction noise with the turbo pipes

    Yes, probably more worthwhile getting intercooler. But the pipes cost virtually nothing, so worth doing.

    Maybe slightly more induction noise. But it was loud before so hard to tell.
