I'm currently running Revo Stage 1 with a panel filter (snow grate removed), turbo pipe and muffler delete.
Is going to stage 2 worth it?
Who here has been stage 1 then moved on to stage 2 with Revo with GPF?
Interested to hear the pro's and con's.
So I've just come back from MRC Banbury, after having the full intake hardware fit treatment, including muffler delete, along with their Custom Stage 1 ECU and TCU remap.
I can safely say I'm so impressed with the results.
After intake stuff fitted
Car sitting waiting to go on the Dyno, it was a fantastic day weather wise. Clear blue skies and sunny, but cold. Good for intake temps.
Power wise, from stock run with intake hardware fitted, it made 323ps.
After the 2nd dyno run following the remap, it made 395ps.
Torque, from stock, it made 413.89Nm (305.27lb ft)
After the 2nd dyno run following the remap it made 547.63Nm (403.91lb ft)
One the brakes side of things, I decided to assess the direct OEM replacement hooked discs all round, along with braided lines from HEL. Pads, I've gone with Ferodo DS3.12 for the front, and Ferodo DS2500 for the rears.
I purchased this totally stock car back in Dec 2020, and although it was quick, I always felt it was holding back a lot. An example of this is that I could be on a dual carriageway doing 50mph for instance and floor it, and it would pick up speed ok (relatively speaking) but there didn't seem to be any urgency to it. I always got the impression it was constantly restricting the boost and fuel, deliberately limiting power, just to maintain its factory output figures. In stock form, most of its speed seems to be concentrated in bursts from standstill up to about 60mph.
I had some time to test the results on my 100 mile drive back home!
Now, its completely different. Everything about it is urgent. From standstill, not using launch control, it really punches in the power, and the DSG shifts are now more aggressive and quicker. I now get the sense of being pushed back in the seat while accelerating in every gear. The power delivery doesn't stop either, it just keeps going until it hits the rev limiter and then upshifts. If I put it in manual mode, it is just that, and it wont upshift until I change and will bounce off the rev limiter.
And then there is the noise. I can hear much more of the intake noises. Makes a massive difference. Oh and it pops and bangs a lot more in race mode!
I don't have a draggy, so I can't test its 0-60 times, but I imagine its going to be less than 4 seconds.
Looking forward to Mallory Park on Thursday.
What does everyone think? Any questions, let me know.
As always, let me know of any further recommendations.
Taking delivery of my second golf R next week. It's currently got a Milltek cat-back system on it but I want to run a Scorpion sports cat DP (as I know that will pass MOTs) for stage 2.
Question is - are there any compatibility issues when fitting or straight plug and play?
I figured I’d start a topic for my lovely OPF 2020 Golf R! This topic is mainly to showcase the journey of my Golf R and encourage other Lapiz blue owners to share theirs!
I’d like to welcome and share:
1. Car modification journey
2. Road trips/ scenic photographs
3. Any other Lapiz blue R related stuff!
I want to share my cars modification journey (it’s currently completely stock) and have many ideas for build. I also plan to take my car around Europe and vlog it for YouTube- I’ll be sharing the journey of that too!
ALL LAPIZ BLUE MK7/7.5 OWNERS WELCOME! (Sorry to other colors haha, All Golf R’s are lovely regardless what colour but this one is for my Lapiz people!)

😎😁 Follow me & share your Lapiz!
Evening Folks hope your all doing okay.
Decided to remove the JB1 from R and try a Revo Stage 1 remap. Car is standard except a drop in filter, turbo elbow and pipe (snow grate removed). Still running a pedal box too.
The remap pulls harder through the rev range and there is more power at the top end than the jb1 gave. Its drives like factory but with a load more power.
Is it worth 3 times the price of a used jb1.....quick answer for me is mmm yes. But different horses for different courses. It also came down the the garage doing the work - very experienced mech / race car builder tuner. And local too! Got me involved and made me feel right at home, so worth every penny. Discount on future work tops it off.
I did consider the dsg remap but feel its not need with the 7 speed dsg box, especially as I always drive in 'manual' . No issues so far. If any slippage occurs ill get Tvs to up the clamping pressure.
The in dash power gauge has been recalibrated and reads 287kw /385 bhp. Not sure how accurate that is.... I would estimate torque at 500ish. It really does pull hard in gear now.
