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 :)

Right after my spamming session (Dont worry, forum police. Im joking lol) i now can post some pics of my new car up from photobucket.

Will let the pics do the talking:


















Also came with a lovely extra:





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
