Stage 3 is a bigger turbo and protected oil system. Did you know you standard FP would of handled the tweak fine.

Still an excellent move getting an uprated APR one though no doubt. Well worth the cash :thumbup:

Well he's chatting shit :lol: the standard FP is good for well over 500BHP! However you've probably gained ever so slightly more from it due to its delivery, and at £350 whether or not you were doing anything more you'd of been a mad fool to leave it :thumbup:

Needed spacers, hence the pictures taken at different times. Also needs a bracket at the back of the calliper to fit the VW hub.
Should have been £2k new but i got them for £800 at friends rates lol
