Treated myself to a remap yesterday, a friend of mine does them so it cost me 135. What a difference its made too :-) Not having it on a rolling road, but similar maps on the same car have produced between 35&38 bhp, and 50nm of torque, very pleased with the results, feels like a new car. Don't really have a heavy right foot, but the extra is there if I need it.

Have something to contribute?

It was a friend of mine, going under the name of Remap Wizard. Normally goes round all the car shows, and had a lot of good feedback, apparently gets his maps from a longstanding company called 'elite remaps' obviously I got mates rates, but would normally be around 185.

Stupid question maybe, but can a petrol not be re-mapped?

Yes they can but as they are normally aspirated (non turbo) they don't benefit much at all, maybe 5bhp which is about the same as you'd get with a good exhaust job and a performance filter together.

Yup was gonna say the same as Clive. You would be talking a lot of money for very little extra BHP so would be pretty much pointless n not worth the money.

Yep, same as the above 2 posts,,, but may be a cheaper option than an exhaust and air filter. Personally though, i wouldn't bother on a petrol model.
