I.m running Revo stage 1 with milltek TBE and loving it. Guessing she is pushing out something between 300-320bhp ....all I know is its a completly different experience than stock......and gives that extra nudge to give you more fun with scooby's, evo's, boxter S's, RS's and even M3's........

Having said that there are many to choose from and most offer tremendous power gains - suppose its a subjective matter of choice between the top 2 or 3.

Cheers and welcome to the forum.

Revo here.....I chose them for the upgrade path and the excellent support.

Gone from Stg1 to Stg 3 and 4 to come.
WOW!
what are you pushing now? (bhp & torque)

Allowing for the rolling road lottery,around 450bhp but torque is cut back by two things......firstly to ensure the bottom end is safe before the pistons and rods are changed,and secondly fuelling,which is limited by the stock pump,which is also about to be changed.

After all that it should be coming up on around 500bhp.

Awesome - power to weight ratio through quattro must be super car material and a real surprise to most.... even to the Porsche 911 turbo man at the lights...must be a fun every day drive....you got any vids mate?

It goes adequately well......but should go better soon.

No videos,but there are a few of these over at the other forum.

Power/weight is about 300bhp/tonne,but it's useable and an everyday drive.

I have the Shark Performance Stage 1 map at the moment (flashed via handheld STS unit) and am about to upgrade to their Stage 2 map this week and all I can say is it's amazing, Dan. I also had an Astra VXR Nurburgring before the S3 and the Shark Performance map has given me back all the excitement that my Stage 3 Astra had, ..and some! Can't fault Ben and his team at Shark.
