    The 1.8 in the meg is a very torquey engine. so much so that its one of the highest outputs in NM for its size, if not the highest.
    Ive got the cup 280 and i spin the wheels all the time grabbing at traction, i would like a 300 - 330 map when the warranty runs out but 400 must be so undrivable from a stand still. This would only really be usable on a motorway in gear.

    I wonder if the RS monitor compensates for the power increase, probably not.

Seems to be a bit of a laugh for short journeys but I'd imagine for long journeys the drivability would be impacted severely and surely other engine parts will start to go based on stresses / pressure increases...but maybe I missing the point..... like others have said hear, something in the 300~320bhp would be nice and yet not impact the character of the car too much.
      I think it really depends on the power delivery. I havent watched the video as the presenter bloke was enough to put me off.

      I had a mk1 Focus RS for years, took it from 240bhp when i bought it (with bluefin) up to 350bhp with a long list of mods including a hybrid turbo. It was a handful but no less so than when it was fairly standard. The main difference being that it just didnt back off at higher revs, never seemed to run out of steam.

        My megane is just shy of 400bhp, I run r888r tyres through the winter and on a dry day I have minimal traction issues in second when the tyres are warm, obviously it spins up if you use the throttle like a switch, but I always have my car in race mode with the extreme throttle map on. So no, it isnt un-useable from a stand still.

        My car is a mk3 with a fully stock engine and clutch. On 235wide tyres
