Please don't go upto 300BHP as the car will Torque steer like mad.

I asked autopsyche about the same issue & he told that it just about manages.

In my opinion, Petes (TurboIndia) would be your best bet. He has extensively modified the black RS to 200 BHP+ ratings and has the expertise that your friend would be looking for.

Thanks so much for your replies. His budget is about 4L.
Have had a look at custom code already, but that is based in the UK and I think the ECU would have to be sent there. Any other tuner in India would be appreciated. Petes I am going to check.
Thanks

Would suggest that you have a word with Pete / Turboindia as Pete's is the distributor for Custom Code in India and Petes have also got the latest phase 3 upgrades available to take the car to 300 horses.

We have specialised on the Skoda RS and we have nearly 85 cars on the road now. If you can give us your number I'll make sure you get all the details you want. We do have a delaer in Mumbai and all stuff we do are bolt on kits and the power output ranges from 200 to 300 BHP. Oh and I forgot to add we have around 8 cars in Mumbai which includes our own member MAD MONKEY and also Arush's(Autopsyche) car.

Feel free to send me a PM or just give me your phone number??

Rgds,

peter
