It's made the car more tolerant of lower speeds on high gears. For example, pre-remap, it would object to 50mph in 6th, whereas now it's happy to do that. The net result is an improvement on economy when driven normally. Obviously, if you use your new-found power frequently, then your fuel consption will suffer. I'm averaging 46mpg on mainly rural roads and town.

On another note, I'm interested to see how a titianium would look on ST alloys without the bodykit. I've even thought about having the standard alloys refurbed in gloss black.

I have looked into re-maps, but for the small gain you make its quite a lot of money.


Well I paid not much over 200 for mine with Angel Tuning. My Fous went from 136 bhp to 171bhp and 314lb ft of torque. Some of the best money I've ever spent, in my opinion of course.

Looking good. Have you considered adding a remap to your wishlist of mods?

Do these fan jets need much adjusting after fitting?

My old Octavia had them and they were only adjustable in the up/down direction.

My remap gives a very similar power/torque output. I only find any slipping issues at around 2k revs under load, but it's hardly noticeable.

As for fuel economy, if driven carefully, I find it has improved over the standard.
