Stage3 is just the engine build spec and associated power level. Has nothing to do with the type of engine management solution used.
My Stage3 still uses the OEM BOSCH AFM setup, which works OK, but I'd rather have the MAP Sensing setup in a heart-beat. At ~USD$2.2k, it's a great deal (compared to Motec/Autronic setup etc).
Their MAP ECU comes preprogrammed with a map to get you running asap. Apparently it's pretty accurate and may need minor adjustments for your application. To get things sport on, Todd will re-program your maps for you and send the binary image to you via e-mail for you to burn on EPROM and try in your ECU. All you do is supply him AFR's plotted against boost/load/rpm and he'll do the fine adjustments as deemed necessary.
A few guys over on Rennlist run the Proto TT setup with MAP Sensing ECU and they have only positive things to say about it! I can't wait to get it myself
People typically say "the car is totally transformed and it feels like the engine has been swapped out with a BIG naturally aspirated motor".
