lol to my surprise she's happy with the 30bhp increase on the ecu and that the exhaust doesn't sound much different to the standard system.
Just a tad louder perticurally at 3,000rpm

Got her remapped yesterday along with the duplex. Is now 120bhp 297nm torque.
Fitting induction filter from Green Performance on Monday when it arrives.
Only other performance mod will be a CodeRed intercooler in early 2013 to complete Stage:1 tuning.

how does the car feel after a re-map??

Feels very responsive in every gear mate.
But I know from looking at the boost gauge, that the turbo still doesn't work 100% of the time like some tuning box's have been known to cause the turbo to functoion at all of the rev range resulting in premature turbo failure. And damage to the engine.
The remap is much better and boost starts in and around 1700rpm up to 3,200rpm the top speed is still 185kmh but it sails up to 160kmh then creeps to 185.
Also on an every day drive approaching roundabouts and traffic lights etc. The gear changes are smoother with no kick or lack of power in 1st or 2nd gear.
To summerise the car feels like a 1.8 petrol but still as efficent as always was when driven normally. Most likely due to the map being done correctly so as the turbo is not on constant however boost has a slight increase with a peak on 3rd gear of 25psi but mostly fluctuating between the 10-17psi figures which used to be 8-12psi
So the remap isint just a bit of software to get more from the turbo. It has gotten an increase from the engine itself aswell as the turbo.
But not all 30bhp gains are coming from the turbo which makes me very happy and still fuel efficent lol I still have a 5 petal flower on my eco mode flowers.
