    I made 361.1bhp on stage 1 before mapping to stage 2. That included a Wagner intercooler and boost pipe kit.
     
    I am at stage 2 GPF now but have the print out somewhere. Will add it tomorrow when I dig it out.

    Done a comparison against cheapest Carwow quotation. Carwow is £5,500 dearer (total cost of ownership).

    Thanks Jon

    Total cost inc interest is £33k - not bad for a £38k car.

    I am not an expert on pcp finance or anything but it’s exactly what it says. Optional final payments and guaranteed future value can be changed by several things such as deposit (30% max deposit on pcp) and how they mess with the figures leaves with a monthly payment.
     
    at the end of the payment term, to keep the car you can either 
     
    A) pay the final value outright and Keep the car
     
    B ) finance the rest with no payment at the end
     
    C) hand the car back (subject to wear and tear and mileage (charged excess if you go over).
     
    The main thing to look at is the cost over the entire term, not just the monthly if you are going to keep the car long term. The total cost can be fudged about to get you a lower monthly payment (with a higher balloon payment at the end) or a higher monthly payment with a lower balloon. Hope this makes sense.
     
    You don’t own the car either way unless you pay it off.
     
    I know there are a lot more clever people regarding finance on this forum who can help a lot more than I can.
     
    Good luck!

    You need to get the ECU read.
    These cars throw up so strange errors for totally unrelated components.

    I had a ACC / front assist error 12–18 months ago. Cut a long story short, it was one of the camshaft actuators that had developed a fault.

    Hey Jon, I have had this happen a couple of times this winter. usually when it was snowing and the sensors on the front bumper had a covering of ice/slush on them. the message went away after I removed all the slush.

    So just went to pick up a chinese. Took the scenic route of course. When the car was up to temp I gave it the beans.
     
    When Revo claim 400ps.... I believe it.
     
    The Torque is much earlier in the rev band and transformed the car again. Still got the pedal box on sport +2 and jesus.... The car shifts. Was skeptical and was an expensive gamble considering how few have done it but worth it. When lockdown ends if anyone is around the South Wales area you are welcome to come for a spin in it.

    Yeah, point I was trying to make is that with the GPF cars they are not running more boost than the non-GPF car to make up for any deficit in running the standard downpipe with oem cat and GPF.
     
    As always with modding, it’s always a risk and if you want to play you bettered be prepared to pay should the worst happen

    Speaking with Revo now. The first image is Revo stage 1 which is about right at 360 bhp. The second image is 277 with stage 2 on it. Definitely not as low as that. Maybe it is an error but the car is definitely much quicker than stock haha 🤣

    So got the car back. He was disappointed with the Dyno results. The wheels kept slipping (PS4S with around 200 miles on them) and said he will give me another dyno run (free of charge) once he has investigated why. He did this as a quick turn around since I have work tomorrow. He drove the car on the road and said it is more powerful for sure. I took it for a quick blast before signing it off (with him recommending I do so).
     
    The car is quicker for sure. The torque is much higher than stage 1 also. Very impressed. It's a lot more punchier in the lower rev range too which really is a nice feel rather than just a lump of power.
     
    Ps. The boost is running at 1.9 now after stage 2 (if that helps anyone?).
     
    Here is the Dyno print outs which he said will be better when we have another go and he figures out why it was slipping. He had another car straight waiting to be started and I didn't want to press him since he has looked after me so well. Dyno figures aren't what matters but will take him up on the offer when he has more time. I am sure it's higher than what it shows.
     
    Fair play to Revo. Stage 2 is a decent upgrade for sure.
     

     

     
    Will post updated Dyno' when we both have time and can have a proper play around!

    Spoke to the Dyno guy at GotBoost. Stage 1 he could hold the dyno (at the speed setting it was on) at 3k RPM at stage 1 with no issue.
     
    At stage 2, he said it was slipping as the torque was so much higher(and he didn't want to destroy the tyres). He has had to change the speed setting of the Dyno so it gave strange numbers. From my little blast on the motorway slip road (kids in the car so not to crazy) the speed was incredible. It definitely pulls much harder lower down the rev range too compared to stage 1.
     
     
    He did say we can do another session on it when it's had its service and we can start the run at 3k RPM to give it more accurate figures at top end (it's definitely not 277) but he used that to make sure the boost pressures didn't drop and the figures can be tested later if I want to confirm the top end performance.
     
    I am happy with that. Just need the wife to come home around 7:30 so I can go out without the girls in the car and get a good feel for it.

    I did on the way home mate as I had the girls in the car and just pottered down the motorway (after the slip road blast) at 70 until we got home. Will take it for a spin later when the wife is home and adjust it as required. Will follow up when I have given it a good blast and let you know

    Good stuff. Despite all the negativity the GPF cars were getting, it looks like it may be the best of the bunch for modding and keeping everything road legal. Retaining the standard cat and GPF, and still making decent power at safe boost levels is a win win win IMO.

    I wouldn’t read too much in to it, obviously an issue with the dyno.
    The stage 1 figure is probably fairly accurate, mine without an intercooler I’ve always said it’s about 350 bhp.
    Will be interesting to see another run on the dyno without it slipping.
    At the end of the day you’ve driven it a few months on stage 1 and know what it was like so a good judge on the new performance.
    As always the biggest jump is stock to stage 1 as in this case stage 2 is only 0.1-.02 bar boost increase.
    Hope your happy with the car and see how it goes as you put some miles on.
    Are you still running your pedalbox on stage 2?
