I think with this discussion one needs to distinguish between a FSI and TSI engine.
for TSI:
stage 1: no hardware needed
Stage 2: Downpipe only hardware required, reflash ECU for free-flow exhaust.
Stage 2+: N/A

intakes are not required hardware, and you can run 100 octane or w/m at any stage, good effort though.
