    Think you need a yellow spring for remap!

    R-Tech are THE BEST. Simples!

    Nick is amazing, his maps are perfect.

    On Prawns new A3 (AUM) he made 224BHP on Badger5's rollers with an R-Tech stage 1.5 map, 007P decat and air filter.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Sweet sound good, we have a heard a few good things about them and I'm positive that's who he is going to use
    It's always good to hear some feedback before you make your decision
    We've been told by someone else that he should hit about 195/200 bhp! He's got a front mount a filter and a bigger tip and some coilovers so IMO he's done some good work in preparation for his map

    Only a stage 1 map mate, not even the 1.5 Nick offers, so it still fuel dumps after 5.5k to protect EGT's.

    that's an AUM though, Vinces AGU should make 190-200bhp Aaron.

    Rtech really are VERY good though.

    hi
    R-tech in my mind are the best people to go to!! nick is a great bloke, and has alot of info!!
    i had my 97 agu mapped there, with a forge TIP, jetex filter and a forge 007p made 193bhp with a whopping 225ftlb torque!!!!! well worth the cash!! i reckon he might make a little more with the fmic and might be an idea to get a dp fitted before, will help loads with that set up!!

    +1 for R-tech

    You get a diagnostics, RR and health check first, smoke test for leaks if necessary and then RR and print outs at the end all for bugger all cash compared to a lot of other tuners. And the maps are great and the guys really seem to know their stuff so if there are 'issues' you're in good hands. Highly recommended!

    Just get him to make sure his car's in good health before he goes or they'll not want to map it and he'll leave disappointed.

    Standard or yellow spring should be fine.
