I’m now the owner of a stage 2 kit! Not sure when I’ll be able to install it yet. Need to line up my volunteers to help and also find the rattle first.

Hi Matt,

I’d like to order one of the kits if still available?

Sorry for the repeat if this question has already been answered. How do I install the remap?

I already had an ecutek tune from fensport a few years ago. I’m based in Northern Ireland.

This may be a stupid question...

I bought an EcuTek programming kit and licence from Fensport, is the licence preprogrammed on the dongle? Or is there going to be an additional step involved? 

Trying to get everything in place to make the Cosworth install as smooth as possible on the day.

If you bought the ECU License then it will apply to the laptop software when you download/update it. It is assigned to the dongle, you should see it in the update procedure.

A question for all the stage 2 owners...  

Who do you have your insurance with? I've done this the correct way and bought the stage two kit before getting insurance quotes! I use Chris Knott, who are usually really good so will be talking to them. Still interested to know who you guys use though.

I was with Adrian flux and now green light for their £45 trackday cover. 

FWIW going from fully stock I was paying about £200/year and then to A flux it went up to £300/year so +50% 

That's for suspension, brakes, wheels/tyres, exhaust, chassis, engine mods and 280hp

That's really good..  I pay more than that for my current setup.  I do live in the shady end of Southampton though so I think that inflates my quotes, maybe more than the mods.

By the way, Ade, I've not thanked you for convincing me to by the stage 2 yet!! So Thanks, I think :-)

LOL Mate you'll love it. With the smaller pulley, the power hike puts it in 718 Porsche Cayman S power to weight territory ~240hp/ton 

Are you still running just the cat back?  I ran that setup for over a year on multiple trackdays jsut fine.
