Ok Brett.

Chances are it simply won't run properly. I have already tested a regular 
2.5 Bar chipset in an RS2-spec 3B engined car (less the injectors) and it 
just won't go right, mixture was way too rich and timing was simply too 
much retarded to get proper power out of the setup, so, well, yes, you'll 
have more than a stock engine with the III+ but waaaaaaaaay less than you 
could have with a proper ECU remap done on the fly, wether on the dyno or 
whilst driving the car.
