    They should scan your car first to make sure it has a clean bill of health....

    wheres it being done mate... any good remapper should make sure that the car is running sweet before atempting it.
    i would say an uprated DV. it should help with the increase in boost

    Ask about the DV spring if it'll cope with the extra oomph

    I'm going to ask Mike at Jabba about this on Friday, I'm convinced my car runs better on the green spring even with the higher boost levels, see what he has to say...

    well got to awesome GTI today and unfortunately they didn't realize that my car required the ECU to be removed and they didn't have the correct cable in stock yet.
    Well i was gutted, a whole day wasted, its not there fault tho, they will ring me when they have it is in to arrange another time to go down.
    they did however put it on the rolling road to provide before and after comparisons.

    standard (well i do have a CAT back) it produced 156bhp and 170ft/lb torque, not bad eh


    156BHP

    170ft/lb torque

    You should have taken it to R Tech, they have worked out a way of remapping AGU's without having to remove ecu .

    Awesome GTI is local and i have heard nothing but brilliant reviews of them,
    they were good while i was there just a shame they didn't have the correct cable.
    im happy with 156bhp for standard.

    Some do, some don't. I think it's a luck of the draw job.

    My AGU ecu needed to be bench flashed.

    They need a particular cable to connect into the ECU. Basically, it looks like the plugs in the car.

    This the through various cables and switches etc plugs into the laptop through USB to allow flashing.

    They don't take the ECU out at R Tech for AGU's, they just put a jumper cable on it.
    Nick at R tech told me most other places don't now how to do this so just take the the ECU out instead.

    Awesom have only just switched to the Revo software so they dont have all the cables, they told me they will have to take the scuttle off.
