British tuner does an ECU remap and adds a stainless-steel performance exhaust system

RS Tuning of Britain has a new Stage 2 package for the Renault Megane RS 250.

Stage 2 delivers an output boost on the Megane RenaultSport 250 by means of a high-flow intercooler from Forge Motorsport, a stainless-steel sport exhaust from Milltek, a choice of a cat bypass pipe or a sport catalyst, and an ECU remap.

All told, power on the 2.0 liter turbocharged F4Rt unit now comes in at 320 PS (235 kW / 316 hp) and 488 Nm (360 lb-ft) of torque over the series' 250 PS (184 kW / 247 hp) and 340 Nm (248 lb-ft).

The package costs £2199, including VAT, with the cat bypass pipe which is for circuit use only. The street-legal sports catalyst option is priced at £2499, VAT included.

Leeds, United Kingdom, 6th September 2011

Designed for enthusiasts wanting the ultimate hot hatch, leading UK based performance specialist RS Tuning is pleased to launch an exhilarating ‘Stage 2' tuning package for the 2.0-litre, turbocharged Renaultsport Megane 250.

RS Tuning's Stage 2 package consists of an alloy Forge Motorsport high flow intercooler, a choice of sports catalyst or cat bypass pipe, a Milltek stainless steel performance exhaust system and a specially developed RS Tuning ECU remap for the 250's F4Rt engine.

The results of RS Tuning's enhancement work on the 250 bhp Renaultsport RS250 are stunning, with peak power being boosted by a substantial 70 bhp to a dyno proven maximum of 320 bhp at 5500 rpm.

The Stage 2 tuning package for the Renaultsport Megane 250 also provides a significant increase in torque output, reaching an impressive 360 lb.ft (488 Nm) at just 3250 rpm. This compares with the standard car's peak torque figure of 248 lb.ft (340 Nm.) Happily, this performance enhancement doesn't come at the expense of tractability, as over 240 lb.ft (350 Nm) of torque is available from between 2500 - 6250 rpm.

No timing data is currently available for the RS Tuning Renaultsport Megane 250 Stage 2 upgrade package, but road and track testing has revealed supercar style levels of in-gear and outright acceleration. Bearing this in mind, the RS Tuning equipped car seems certain to eclipse the standard Megane 250's quoted 0-60 mph time of 6.1 seconds, with an estimated top speed (where conditions allow) of over 165 mph.

Available now, the RS Tuning Stage 2 performance package for the Renaultsport Megane 250 RS costs £2199.00 fitted including VAT @ 20% for the cat bypass version (for circuit use only), while the MOT legal sports catalyst option costs £2499.00 including VAT @ 20%.
