Booked myself in for an early Christmas present - R-Tech Stage 1, Pre-CAT delete, injector clean and Walnut blast on my Eddy.   :party: Oh boy I really cant wait. The only downside? a bloody early start in the morning and I hate early mornings. Car has never been tuned before.

Done most of the prepping I think I need in the last year or so, Serviced, Oil pickup and pan clean, New plugs, Cam follower, Cam chain, DV, PCV, New Condenser, BCS Cat back... did I miss anything? I am keeping the standard intake and air filter for now because I like OEM but I may be convinced to get an ITG panel. Jury's out for now.

But not long to wait, 4 weeks !!! and counting  :party:

Fuel filter, if it's really old.  You don't want any LPFP supply issues on the day.  Just a precaution and it doesn't hurt to change them annually anyway to prolong pump life.  Pump fuel is filthy!

You might like to try a Pipercross dry foam filter.  Cheap as chips, no risk of MAF contamination and I can detect improved breathing at higher rpms, but it's not a massive difference.
Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

I stayed in the Premier Inn about 2 miles away for £30, and drove down the evening before.

Mines got the standard airbox with APR filter and BCS TB with sports cat so pretty similar and it made it 321hp

Cheers Pudding... need to check that before I go. I know its got the uprated version so its been changed at some point but no harm in doing it again.

@neilw  Now that's a good idea and I can dream of 320  :smiley: Its a 2 hour drive for me but they want me at 8:00am so a good call and will avoid any motorway nightmares.

That's what mine also made but with the factory cat back. 320ish hp seems to be the ceiling for the standard airbox but for the sake of another 15-20hp, I wasn't prepared to put up with the noises and fitment issues of aftermarket intakes!

It's funny really, a certain well known parts supplier refused to map mine to Revo 2+ unless it had an intake on it.  Good to see R-Tech will oblige customers with standard hardware.  That's when I fitted the revo intake, got it mapped, then took it off.  Bugger all difference in terms of power, going by my bum dyno  :grin:
