As soon as the alloys are paid off i'm heading straight down Bigboystoyz (or wherever do the best deal) and gonna get me the exhaust and stage 2.

I've got the 4bar programme and induction kit already so looking forward to some noticable improvement [:D]

I have the performance cat too.

TBH, there is not a huge difference between stage1 and stage2. I started with stage1, then got the exhaust, then the 4bar fpr, then stage2. The biggest difference (after stage1 of course [;)]) is the exhaust.
Stage2 is merely incremental, so you will see a difference in track day times or drag strip times, but you won't feel any difference on the road.

If you can afford it and do go the whole mile, though, you won't be disappointed. Wheels spinning in first and second, massive torque steer, a lovely 4-pot growl as you welly it, yes please, sir I'd love some more [:D]

At the moment I'm just running a green panel
filter, but I have a Carbonio sitting at home that I'm hoping to fit
this weekend. Will also do the TIP at some point.
Im not convinced the TIP is worth the upgrade on DBW engines as its a lot less restrictive than it was on the older NON DBW's.

i have revo stage 2 0-60 5.4 seconds and 1/4 mile 14.20 seconds
Which of course has nothing to do with the driver who's well........magic!

Mike has a quick car, but his times are more a reflection of his skill.

At the last rolling road session we were at together, both Mike and I were making mid 220bhp (JBS earlier this year). You might be able to find the graphs somewhere on the site here.

As Wilko has said, Mike's times are more to do with his skill than any more power.

Personally I think it is more to do with him weighing nothing. [:p] Or is it that I am just a fat bastard?
