They don’t feel quick standard I think thats the issue at least it was for me !
The lack of torque also means i had to rev it hard to have any fun which I found frustrating. It’s not all about peak numbers and 0-60 gains for me it made the car more fun and the power more usable day to day.

Each to their own I guess

Mines a pre face lift so its only 4.8 seconds🤣

Ive gotten so used to the power already, 2months of ownership, and personally think the torque kicks in a little to late for my liking. 👍🏼

I had mine done with GAD tuning north and it’s well worth it, and I previously had a tricolore tuning box

Just a remap or any other mods? I see the only difference between stage 1-2 is the extra bhp gains, torgue figures are the same “460 ft lb”

I take it this is due to limiting to torque for the gearbox? Keep it running safe

Yes I think so I just have dms map and drop in k&n

Stage 2 is full intake with 4” collar and down pipe. I saw a guy on here had Dms stage 2 and made 460bhp.

Tbh just their map is enough for me

I personally have had sport and race cats in the past, beware there is a lot of differences between cheap and expensive ones (amount of precious metals) and thus how long they last. They do "wear out" so not fit and forget like I thought so for that reason I wouldn't have one again.

Stage 1 for me or stage 1.5 seen as I have an air intake too. Not really seen the need for stage 2 because the gains over stage 1 aren’t really worth the extra money and mot problems in my opinion.
