Going stage 2 next month on my pfl. Car is currently standard apart from HG intake drop in K&N, forge intercooler.

Sports cat downpipe next week then HPFP upgraded plugs and MRC stage 2.

What's it like anybody? I realise not as much gains as on a facelift model.

Thanks.

Afaik 450 horses is about the limit. Higher than that needs an upgraded turbo. Plus 50hp should be noticeable ;)

I think the torque increase can be pretty good. Some people say the jump from stage 1 to stage 2 isn't worth it but I thought there was a bit more torque to be had from stage 2.

Tbf I think it depends on the car you have, my car at stage 1 makes 592nm of torque, where as stated it only reckons they'll get to 465nm . It was about bang on with the power though at 416bhp.

I'm excited to see where stage 2 will go.

To be honest I thought MRC did their own custom mapping ?

 

Or have I got this wrong........................... again  :(

They do have a standard stage 1 map however you can have it custom tweaked by Doug to suit what supporting mods you have.

Brian’s car is / was a shining example of MRC’s custom mapping.

Roy.

I think they mean they use MRC maps not supply maps to MRC.

Yes correct, I said I was getting an MRC map and I'm dealing with CM tuning in Leeds. They provide MRC maps Chris at CM tuning worked at MRC many years and is authorised to sell MRC maps. Hope that clears things up 👍
