    Default BSR Stage One

    After a few e-mail's too and from BSR, they're saying it's the downpipe because we have a 3" stainless steel one.
    Has anyone else on stage one, changed the downpipe?
    Or does it sound like a valid reason? We have the stage one, 3" stainless downpipe and exhaust with just two back boxes, we left the centre box out, air box mod, and we had put a pipercross panel filter in but it's now a standard one as this caused the trouble.
    BSR are suggesting stage three but we already have a longlife stainless exhaust and don't want to spend another Ģ400 on a new one plue the extra costs of injectors and map when only things we've heard of stage three are bad things. And to be honest I don't want that power, I like the stage one power which is enough to leave someone behind and enough to follow it through with but not stupid amount. Yes I am still young and foolish at 25 but I value my licence too much driving 250+ miles a week

    2.0T has no centre box anyway just two back boxes. As for the downpipe causing the problem I really don't know. I've simply replaced my original back boxes with a nearly new pair of identical boxes and left everything else 'as is'.

    BSR have assumed you don't have an internal engine fault and have plumped for the only other item you have changed, namely the exhaust.

    I agree with you Stage 1 is more than enough 'oomph' for me.
