Very true, thankyou very much for your help.To be honest with you, I would just stick with the ECU remap. You say you went with diesel to save money (Cost) and the car is already on 190k mileage wise, so assuming reliability is important to you, then just the remap will be the way to go. As and when you have better finances and fancy a newer car then you can go to town on it, so to speak
Cannot recommend any from your neck of the woods buddy, but if you can not find any locally then have a look on our list of recommended traders here on TC. If they are still too far away for you to visit, some ECU remappers do a plug in gizmo that they can send on to you for the cost of the remap and a deposit to secure the return of the gizmo. You then simply plug in the gadget into your OBD2 port, usually found underneath your steering wheel up inside the foot well. You plug it in and follow the child proof under 5 year old instructions to upload the new performance map.Very true, thankyou very much for your help.
Any reliable or trustworthy remappers around in assending orders lol £??
Haha excellent! Ok well I'll go for it then,I don't know of this team personally my friend, but any ECU re-mapper has a copy of the original file for your car so it should be no problem at all to revert back to the original map.
As for "making a mistake" I very much doubt it. If you can operate a TV remote then the gizmo will be no problem at all for you. It is usually simply a case of plugging it in, the unit reads your ECU and when it is ready it says press "enter" and tells you when it has finished the uploading. If it was any simpler it would be written down in a Janet & John Green book one for the beginner
You can get a whole range of choices - the only limit is your wallet and bank account. You need to discuss with the gentleman what it is that you want; performance or fuel economy, top end power or low end grunt. Stage one is not "normal" and should never be seen as such. Stage one is your first walk through the gateway of higher performance.Haha excellent! Ok well I'll go for it then,
Do I get any choices or anything regarding the map or is it really just buy a stage 1 map and plug and play so to speak.
Secondly i imagine there's people out there selling maps as stage 1 ect but in reality they are just being sold a normal one, do you understand what I mean lol sorry,
How would I know
