We all remember when Stage 3 was only 385 hp right? It was still $5K at the time! Imagine you can pump almost 400bhp with 100oct on a K04.

While some may say its the "new" Stage 2 (or Stage 2+...I dunno) its still a blast to drive. Coupled with all of the supporting mods (Suspension, IC, Mounts, Tires, Clutch...etc.etc.) you're definitely in a bracket of winners. Also consider that some TSIs with K04s are running 12.00s in the 1/4 upwards to 119mph! Thats fucking insane for a $2500 mod.
oh dont get me wrong. it will be the best thing that has ever happened to me. after my wife.. my kid.. etc. it will probably be the fastest car i've ever owned, as i said in my video.

Oh........It will be!. But not only will it be FAST....but it will be QUICK. You know that "feeling" you get with a Stage 1 FSI? Magnify that strong beast like pull times 50. I still get giddy when I stomp on it in 3rd or 4th around 2000RPMs. Its just so intoxicating because the torque is absolutely INSTANT

You will never miss your 2006 GTI you rave about being fast as hell ever again...I promise

it was my 2008.. the one i thought might have had a K04 in it on stock programming.

Can't wait to cruise 70mph on the freeway.. just lay into it, and start spinning. gonna be sweet.

Oh...my bad. Same deal though

Yeah 70mph will be tough for you because the car just begs to be floored at that point. Even in 5th you'll get an awesome pull. Around here, I cant keep it below 75.

Try a 30-40 roll in 3rd or 4th for your first WOT run.........that'll get you hooked so hard you wont want to take this mod off

Plus, you always mention you like to turbo spooling sound. You're definitely in for a treat. I cant hear my intake on the drivers side of the engine bay. I really only hear the turbo on the passengers side.

^that's damn impressive, but the 100oct helps - 20G's were sweet turbos on the STI's, I almost did one on my '04.

Stage 3 is overkill on the FWD GTI, imho.
