What Exactly is Race Tuning?
Thanks to Omaze for sponsoring today's episode! You could win a 2018 DODGE DEMON and $20,000 cash through Omaze! ENTER: bit.ly/You-Dodge-Demon-Win
You’re probably more than familiar with language like “stage 2 turbo” or “stage 3 tune” but if we really pressed you on the different stages of tuning, would you be able to lay out a definitive set of guidelines for what those stages actually mean? Does bumping up each stage mean I’m going to double my horsepower? Triple? Dare I say it, quadruple?! Well today on B2B, Uncle Jerry is going to get into the stages of tuning, and answer all your questions. Every question you have, he'll answer.

    I always went as follows: Stage 1: Slap it on, done. Stage 2: Shit you can't just slap on but have to take some shit apart and then do other shit so the shit you slapped on in the 1st place works. Stage 3: Completely taking shit apart, at this point the original parts would implode due to lack of durability.

    Lol and if a tune shop recommends a stage 3 it will include everything, same with two and stage one. Sure you can say general shit but car guys know.

    At the end of the day you’re only paying for the quality of the product. For instance stainless steel versus just steal or titanium. Different manufacture simply use cheaper methods of manufacturing versus other manufacturers that use more expensive quality materials.

    In the Subaru community we have a pretty widely accepted "stage" system, its mainly just a quick way to sum up what kind of mods we have. But it's unique to each Make, like a stage 2 Subaru WRX isn't necessarily the same as a stage 2 VW GTI.

    IMHO the idea of stages with regards to making a car faster is meaningless and also a waste of money. A better approach would be to set a 1/4 mile goal like "I want an 11 second car that can beat a C8 corvette" then build the car to the goal. The idea of pay-as-you go by upgrading a car a little bit at a time from stage 1 to stage 2 to stage 3 and so on is very expensive. You end up replacing parts you just bought with slightly better parts then replacing that part with another slightly better part. You upgrade the engine then you find the next weakest link which might be the transmission. You upgrade the transmission then you find the next weakest link which might be the differential. Tell me what your car does in the 1/4 mile and I can easily compare it to other cars. Tell me what stage your car is and that tells me nothing except maybe you spent more or less than someone else with the same car. Speed = Money. How fast do you want to go?

    This was also mentioned in GT1 A stage 2 turbo on a demio LX-G gave you the same amount of HP as a Stage 3 turbo on that car. But having a fully tuned Demio LX-G is quite fun. The LX-G starts off with 80hp(lowest in game), but once fully tuned it has 211hp and weighs about 710kg. Tune it right and it can win the Grand Valley 300km which uses 600hp race cars.
