    courtenay stage 3 yesterday!

    spent the whole day there yesterday geting the stage 3, and what a differance! the car has changed from to and im loving it. John and the team worked on my vxr and patricks zaf gsi all day. (i didnt leave until 730) but the results in the drive feel spot on.
    I was just a smidge disappointed i only acheived 291 bhp, was hopeing for around 296- 297 but i think the torque figures were ok at 315. i think the temp on the rollers didnt help as it was 29 and the fans were only blowing at 60mph.

    All in all tho i offer the boys a thumbs up as im well chuffed. its nuts

    gonna get the graphs up asap

    You can't be disappointed over 5bhp! Thats a damn good result.

    Hope to go stage 3 myself soon, although on a Zlet so hoping for 270bhp.

    Well done mate. 291bhp must be awesome!

    My drive home was very interesting, the upgrade completely changed the way the car drives, feels like an animal now after about 3,000rpm. Just a shame about the turbo. Smoking quite badly now, so looks as though I'm going to have to take it easy and really start saving for a replacement..

    hi matt. Not sure about going for more power yet gonna leave it a month or 2 i think. Its just that the grip isnt great now in the first 3 gears (in the wet) so what would it be like with more power
    oh and patrick we both know you were gonna have the stage four anyway so you dont have to use the dying turbo as an excuse to us. save it for the missus ha ha
