    Im 20 years old and I am now the proud owner of a mk3 Cupra Turbo.

    Pick the car up on Saturday from Birmingham, was a nice trip down...apart from the M6 traffic!! Ahh well, it was worth it :funk:

    Little spec of the car:

    Black 20v Turbo
    75k FSH (3/4 Seat)
    Coilovers
    Cat back exhaust - Miltek i think.
    Strut brace
    Tints
    Spacers for the back wheels

    Previous owner said it has a Revo stage 1 map, dont think this is true as its runing a standard 7/8 psi!!!

    Also cam with a nice new shiney FMIC and a Forge TIP :clap:

    Will upload pictures when photobucket decides to finished uploading :)

    With the FMIC, does it look like all the pipes are there?

    For some reason i have a feeling there is some straight metal pipes missing!!

    Anyone??

    Also, Comment?

    Looks like a clean example... 7/8 PSI... IIRC i thought standard Cupras only hit 5psi?...Then again a stage 1 map I would expect 14psi peak?

    Could be wrong, its been a while since I was heavily involved with these.

    To be honest mate, i dont have a clue either! lol.
    Im just going on things ive read over the forum, maybe ive read wrong :shrug:

    It does pull well though, although after coming from a 1.4 8v 75bhp Saxo....Anything will pull well :funk:

    Looks nice best colour too ;)

    From what ive read your better off changing the pipes to better ones on these fmic anyway

    Pretty sure a Revo stage 1 should peak around 20-21psi

    Mines 18psi on an AMD map but im going Revo stage 2 once i fit my exhaust and find a decent k03s tubo

    Best bet would be to take it to a Revo dealer and have them check if its got the map or not

    The maps can be adjusted through the sps controller so maybe theres a chance he had it set to *stock mode and never changed back?

    Its what i had to do after buying mine

    Turned out not to be Revo though lol
