You would run something like 75 horses when you go into limp mode.

25 psi on a stage 3 apr would send you straight into limp mode. That's way to much boost for the bigger turbo. You can run ~21psi on the stock turbo but on a larger turbo like the in apr's stage 3 kit, you'd be crazy to try and run that much boost. Especially if you don't have forged rods and pistons.

Amen!

Maybe 13's, maybe 30's, how good of a driver are you? A fast car can be slower than crap with a bad driver.

Normally aspirated VR's, and high boosting fours (or anything for that matter), are completely different beasts. Not saying you can't, but start slow, learn the car. Don't worry about what you can do with a stage III with mods, unitl you get it dialed in as is.

The APR stage three isn't much bigger, the biggest difference is switching from fluid bearing to ball bearing in the turbo casing. They kept the small turbo to keep the boost threshold down.

Yes you can spike to 25psi on APR Stage III, but you won't hold it.

Most Stage III guys are running low 13's, a very few of them are running in the high 12's.
