What is a Stage 6 tune?
Stage6 Tuning is the tuning department of Stage6. Tuning parts from engine to transmission, intake to exhaust are constantly being redeveloped, tested and optimized in order to then bring these high-quality tuning components to the market and make them available to everyone.
Stage tuning describes the manner in which various upgrades and enhancements are made to your vehicle. Each stage depicts a different level of upgrades that are fitted as a set, as well as how far you've gone with tuning parts of your car.
Whilst Stage4 software is designed to be run with all the bolt-on hardware, Stage 5 is the next progression and has been developed to maximise the potential of cars running fully built engines with uprated valve-train. Stage 5 software is a full 'Race' map, giving performance levels that could embarrass most supercars.
Stage 4. Stage 4 is the last state of tuning for most cars. What's modified for a tune to be classed as stage 4 is open to interpretation, but at the very least, it is here that an upgraded turbocharger/ supercharger, such as a hybrid turbo, is installed.
Stage 1 Tune up to 549 HP, Stage 2 up to 585 HP, Stage 3 up to 613 HP.
What is stage tuning? A stage represents a set of upgrades fitted as a set. As you might expect, a stage is how far you've gone with tuning part of your car. Stage 2 represents a more tuned car than stage 1.
For a general stock car (i.e. no additional performance parts), a tune will boost your hp by 10 to 15 percent. What's more is that if you've added performance parts to your vehicle such as cold air intake, exhaust, or turbo, the hp boost you gain from tuning may be as high as 50 percent more!
' A 'tune' is a device that will update your car's ECU or computer and give it different instructions on how to deliver power to the engine. You will unlock your engine's full capacity with this tune. It can add 15-30 horsepower and 20-30 lb-ft of torque on most basic cars.
The Stage 2 upgrade delivers up to 30% more horsepower and 10% more torque.
Some people are concerned that engine remapping could cause problems with their car. But it shouldn't affect reliability if you use a reputable company. Remapping does put extra strain on an engine, but not a dangerous amount if it's done properly.
How many stages can you tune the car?
Stage 1 = chip tuning / tuning box. Stage 2 = Stage 1 + downpipe, intercooler, sports air filter, possibly upgrade turbocharger / upgrade compressor kit. Stage 3 = Stage 1 + Stage 2 + engine reinforcement, complete exhaust system, modified intake / air flow.
You can expect a 20-30% increase in bhp and torque after a remap. This extra performance is accessible across the rev range, particularly at low revs and in the mid-range. A typical 30-70mph run will be reduced by 1.5-2 seconds, and your car will pull better at higher speeds.
Stage 3 modifications are known by most as a track day modification. Similarly, to stage 2, they will also require other mods to support them but they are usually less ideal for road use due to there aggressiveness. A stage 3 modified car will need to be regularly overhauled and serviced.
A stage 2 tune involves fitting a turbo-back exhaust on turbocharged vehicles or a cat-back exhaust system on non-turbocharged vehicles. In either case, these systems are designed to improve airflow from the engine. They are also well-known for improving the sound of a car.
Some of the highest horsepower cars available are:
Rimac Nevera: 1,914hp. Bugatti Chiron SS: 1,600hp. Koenigsegg Regera: 1,479hp. Tesla Model S Plaid: 1,020hp.

Tuning stock settings will not cause any engine damage if done correctly. Our real-time dyno tuning is one of the safest ways to increase your engine power. However, it's highly advised that you don't attempt to tune your own car.
Having your car tuned is a great way to make it run better and use less gas. Tuning can be expensive, though. Standard options can cost between $50 and $200, but more expensive jobs will cost between $400 and $700.
How to add 400 hp to a car?
- Upgrade the Air Intake. Many gearheads start here. ...
- Upgrade the Exhaust. More air entering the engine means more air has to exit the engine. ...
- Install A Performance Tuner. ...
- Install a Boost Controller. ...
- Clean the Fuel System.
A cat-back exhaust system improves horsepower because it improves the car's performance. Your vehicle doesn't have to work as hard, and the flow of air is increased.
A 1-horsepower engine couldn't maintain more than 20 or 30 mph in a normal car, and you could never turn on the headlights or the air conditioning. The other problem is acceleration. The bigger the engine, the faster you can accelerate from zero to 60mph.
Can you have a well-tuned vehicle that looks great and still use it for your daily commute? The short answer is “yes.” However, you will have to go about the process somewhat differently than those who are tuning a car that is not driven every day.
A turbocharger works with the exhaust system and can potentially give you gains of 70-150 horsepower. A supercharger is connected directly to the engine intake and could provide an extra 50-100 horsepower.
