Main power limiter of a stock stage 3 is fuel. Leaning it out a little will gain you about 15hp. Next issue is redline boost, stock it falls off too much, need to hold more to redline, adds another 10hp or so. Last issue of the stock setup is the exhaust, loves to breathe, needs a bigger 02 housing and 3" Turbo back.

Do all those things, you will net around 340-350hp at the wheels.

The big dollar upgrade is the exhaust manifold, it is the biggest hinderence to getting closer to 400hp. Getting an external gate and getting a port and polish will put you around 380hp. Upgrading the wheel itself, well, thats endless depends on your choice.

Stage 3 loves meth, seen it myself. Hits like a raped ape from 3k to 5k (runs high egts stock, meth brings it down to earth).

If you are on a budget (dont know your budget $$) I would try and get a wideband and tuning device like the Diablo sport. You really cant start messing with anything until you can see your AFRs. That will allow you to lean it out a bit and up the boost too.

Nitrous is not a bad idea, but what i found was the stage 3 turbo with its high egts and higher pressure ratios tends to knock a lot on pump and nitrous. With a 50 shot you can get away with about 17-18psi and 93 pump. Would net around 400hp and about 450wtq.

Still not a bad idea tho...

47lb wheel seems to be the best wheel upgrade

Full built by the Mopar book stage 3 would be non hom 300/300 hom 350/350. With all the proper modifications I could see 400whp on race gas and high boost being close to the max on the stock S3 compressor wheel due to it's 39lb rating.

i'll ditto what was said above by TurboMoparGod and add that stock S3 could have been higher if there was 400-500 more RPMs calibrated into the pcm with the proper fuel/etc but that wasnt possible because during R&D of the staged kits it was found that for durability and reliability sake that 6500rpm is the maximum the OEM engine using the Stage 2 or Stage 3 setups can be taken to in order to maintain those criterias. I have personally taken a stock SRT4 engine to 7300rpms on a big wheeled stage 3 car.....the power was still on the rise even when i let off still short by 350rpms of the redline i had set and i dont doubt a stock S3 turbo will make good power on that same engine all the way up to 7250rpm cause thats where the stock cams run out of breath surely the turbo would be getting there too.

Big ups on the info! would i need a return line before turning up the boost with a boost controller (Apex'i), or could i just tune it the way it comes? Also, 04blu, you think maybe slapping on an AGP stage 3 wastgate would help?

Hey Turbo, so the S3 has a 39lb? Thats what i was wondering. Any clue on what 1/4 mile track numbers i should be running? My mods are AEM CAI, S3K, MPx fmic, 3" TBE. I want to crank up the power, so i was thinking some drumsticks.

Wait a minute... Do you have a Mopar stage 3 turbo or the PTP S3K turbo? Here is the link to the PTP S3K turbo. PT-Performance.com

They're way too many variables to even remotely give an idea of what your car would run at the track. Tires, weather, track conditions, how good of a driver you are etc, etc.
