I thought it will make a bit of difference, but honestly i'm amazed just how much difference it has made, but then again it is a 20% increase and the torque is unreal, worth every penny !​

Just a straight forward flash, no dyno. Soon as intercooler and exhaust is done will get it on a dyno to see if all running well

Did they do any fine tuning to it or was it a straight forward flash? Do they have a dyno there?
When I had mine done at Collins, Gary took it out for a quick road test to make sure everything was OK, then mapped it, then took it out for another spin. All in all, including a tour round the place, I was in and out in 45 minutes. I would have stayed a lot longer but I had two mates that were itching to get away and down to a music festival. Spoil sports!

Any map will make a huge difference from the standard ST. It's the single biggest change you can make to the car

Big difference from standard, the torque is amazing.

No sign of any clutch slip but will prob get RS clutch kit next year anyways

The week gets better, picked up a Airtec Gen 3 intercooler today, done less than 500 miles due to changing ST for an RS, £200 the thing is as new and he chipped in a RS fuel pump for FREE, result
