    Remap advice please.

    i'm looking at getting a remap towards the middle of next month.

    the answer i would like to know is who should i go for to get the best gains, i got a 1999 A3 1.8T (AGU 150BHP)
    only mods i got is: Forge 007P, induction kit and front mounted intercooler

    i have been looking into R-tech at the moment, as you seem to get a lot for the money and they claim to end up with good gains.

    most people say go for Revo but the things which is putting me off is 1 the price and 2 is my mate got his LCR done by them and it just made it worse.

    what maps do most people on here get, looking at something within a 30-40miles of kingsclere/newbury/basingstoke

    thanks for any help
    Jay

    I have Revo software on my S3 and am very very happy with it, i got it with a show discount with the SPS switch included so you can tune it exactly how you want it. No map should make a standard car worse so i would blame the tuners for that one. Almost all the brands are good just make sure the guy actually doing the map is experienced with your car.
    I would wait for responses from the guys local to you that may have experience of your local tuners.

    that is what is making me think its worth the traveling to go to them as they prove the gains and also to the engine health check

    which i can't find anyone else who offers so much for the the same price

    R-Tech.

    Had recent experience with them, thier customer service and honesty is priceless. Most companies will just stick a map on your ECU atleast R-Tech will health check the car and engine and dyno it before they touch the ECU.

    All for an unbeatable price i'd say!
