Stage Modifications

The days when automobiles were used as they left the factory started to fall behind as technology developed. The diversification and development of technology used in the automotive sector and the fact that it appeals to cars from all segments has led to the development of the tuning culture day by day. Although there are many different modification types and modification methods, the most important modification processes that drivers dream of are of course under the hood. In this article, we will take a look at the stage 1-2-3 modification type, which is a modification type that directly affects the engine.


What is Stage 1-2-3 Modification?

Just like many activities have stages, there are also stages of modification. These stages are generally ordered according to the complexity of the modification systems created on the engine and each stage has its own technical features. Let's take a look at these stages in more detail.


Stage 1

Stage 1, which is the most basic and easily applicable step among the stage modification processes, serves as a basis for the modification processes to be applied more. At this stage, you will not have to make radical changes on the car and very simple modifications in terms of assembly. Compared to other stages in terms of cost, it has a much lower cost. If we take a closer look at the Stage 1 modification processes, we can encounter the following examples;

  • Chip Tuning
  • Exhaust Modification
  • Cold Air Intake Kit
  • Timing Setting
  • Downpipe Applications


Stage 2

Looking at the Stage 2 applications, we see a more complex and effective modification trend built on the reinforcement foundation created in the Stage 1 section. Although its application is not as easy as Stage 1, it will provide a noticeable increase in the performance of your engine. Some examples of Stage 2 modifications are as follows;

  • Hybrid Turbo
  • Supercharge Application
  • Turbo Change
  • Improvements in Injection System
  • Intercooler Capacity Increase


Stage 3

Stage 3, the last step of the stage modification process, stands out as the most costly and perhaps the most complex application stage of this sequence. As the professionalism of the parts to be used on the vehicle increases, the changes you create on the car can become illegal. The number of modification types is quite high and the need for modification is quite high. It is recommended to apply to a sports car that is more suitable for the track rather than an ordinary road car. The types of modification that can be made can be exemplified as follows;

  • Track Suitable Eccentrics
  • Chip Software Update
  • Stage 3 Clutch Modification
  • Fuel System Improvements
  • External Vastgate
  • Forged Piston Application
