Stage 1, 2 & 3 tuning mods explained

We hate to shatter the illusion but they are fairly meaningless terms if applied to power gains and cannot reliably be used to explain how much power a modification adds. There is no consistant difference in part makers between their classifications of stage 1 stage 2 and stage 3 mods.

Some tuning companies will just box their parts in packs labelled stage 1,2 and 3 and maybe even 4 or 5. Such labeling is as helpful as a product number and should not be taken as any sort of guarantee of the power gains or suitability for your car.

Anti lag systems

We look at Anti lag systems in cars and how these keep the turbo spinning ready to provide boost from low RPM speeds. When you lift off the throttle the engine power cuts and the turbo starts to spool down.

From this low spool state there is a delay while the turbo spins up again before it can provide any useful boost. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ALS and look at alternative options.

Chip Tuning – better engine management.

The days of fiddling around in the engine bay with a spanner to make the car go faster are numbered.

Modern engine computers (ECU’s) take over many of the controls of all aspects of engine management from timing to fuelling and more.

This actually means you get better power, a cleaner burn and more reliable engine but it does not mean the end of tuning.

Comparison of Turbo’s and superchargers

Both work on the same principle they blow air into the engine under pressure.

But there are some major differences between the two and which is best for your project?
