    EBAY Resistor Mod or Custom Code?

    Can I just halt these xxxx vs Custom Code threads for a while.

    Custom Code.


    No other remap is as good.

    The end.

    I miss the turbo I had on my old LCR, so I'm getting one of them realistic 12v turbo's. Then I'm getting the resistor to up the boost even further.

    my mate did when he owned a saxo, i tried fitting it to my car and it didnt do jack ****, what a waste of 99p, claimed it gave you an extra 30bhp, i was only 18 at the time, they make &#163;&#163;&#163;&#163;&#163;s each week the companys what sell them resistors, i wonder if you could sell a dirty pair of pants and claimed that they gave you an extra 100bhp if you rapped them round your air filter, i bet someone would buy them, LOL

    Well, I was hoping to keep this a secret...

    You see, you've all missed a trick with your weedy little resistors and your hairdryer turbochargers...

    Once I get to 88mph I'll laugh you all back in time!...

    i think the resistor is more powerful on a 1.6.. see i only have one, and i can break the sound barrier.

    1. How do you know what is best unless you have tried the others?

    2. Most remaps now will be similar, there have been pioneering companies outthere for so long now, Revo, Superchips, Jabba, AMD that the newer companies will have plagerised all the good bits anyway.

    3. Guy on TT forum had a CC remap and his motor blew up, due to what looks like det on cyl 1. Another guy with Ptorque had the same thing happen exactly.

    Both these remaps seem very popular on that forum......maybe they are pushing some cars a little too hard?

    1. I have personally had Superchips, Revo and Custom Code on the same car. I also used to work for a ChippedUK distributer.

    2. This is true.

    3. I reckon also true, although to their credit the remappers tend not to push things too hard and you have to download and change the settings yourself to do anything dangerous.

    Fair enough. But not P Torque, Jabba, AMD, Upsolute....!?!

    Truth is, they are all about the same, all maybe a bit different, some copanies better if you have a lot of additional mods maybe, for stock cars most are about the same.

    SOme maps are different to each other, revo is very agressive mid range. For some that is "better", for others, smoothness is the key.
    Also, some maps do better on different model cars. IN the AGU K03s shoot out at awesome, jabbas map won by quite a margin (RS GOLF's car), even up against cars on race gas.
    Not necessarily a better map, maybe, but a better result on that car/spec.

    My advice is avoid the cheap and nasty maps, but cheap does not mean bad necessarily, (Upsolute generic maps are great value by all accounts).
    Try cars wiht similar spec to see what style of map you personally like and then go for it.
    If you cannot do this stick with the big names, Revo, CC, Superships, Jabba, MRC etc etc and you will not go too far wrong.

    OMG,this is the best website ever 'Barryboys'

    Apparently, taking a **** prior to take off reduces drag and the G-force exerted on your stomach whilst accelerating to optimum take off speed.

    What worries me about those is if you look at the guys feedback so many people have actually bought them.

    Here's me thinking that all the pondlife down the carpark have got supercharged Saxos (chavtoasters), Astras, Corsas etc.

    i might buy them, 5-20bhp each one, so that is a good 1000bhp if i buy 50, i could stick one on the roof, one on my windscreen, and the other 50 in my engine instead of oil, i will also fold my back seats down and pump my tyres to 38psi so i get more speed, and also reverse it into a brick wall to make the car lighter, obviously after the back bumper has fell of and tailgate
