    Stage 3 is available and I believe stage 4 too. Although they are not 280bhp.

    I've got 330 BHP and 430 Lbft out of a 2.8 turbo and it STILL ISNT ENOUGH...

    You really need around 380-430 BHP before it starts to get interesting

    Or loose a load of weight ...

    Expensive. last I heard the tyres last 15mins a speed and can only be changed, at £4,000 a corner, at the factory. Then there's the fuel consumption.........never mind what group insurance it would be

    Maptun stage 5 is good for about 285bhp but you need to upgrade the turbo, injectors, fuel pump and fit a sports cat, performance air filter and cat back exhaust. See Caveman_Nige's thread in the south central region forum as he's done his

    I'm running the Maptun stage 3 on mine which is good for 235bhp and you need performance air filter, bigger injectors (but not as big as the ones needed for stage 5) and cat back.

    Neo Brothers in Waltham Cross are the Maptun agents in the Uk.

    Should be noted that Maptun is a Saab tuning company, but the z20net is a Saab engine.
