    Remap devistation

    Hi guys.just come back from getting my car mapped and the map didnt go on.The remap guy said its not going on cuz it mite of had a trial or possible map on it before by revo,apr or custon code.The only way is to take out the ecu and do a bench flash.

    Has this happend to anyone before?also will i need a new ecu?and isit any diffrent to doing a normal map?

    Decent mapping tools are capable of overwriting Revo and Custom Code but sometimes it has to be done in boot mode and for that the ECU needs to be taken out for bench flashing...

    You shouldn't need a new ECU just a capable tuner...

    well they just quoted me 380 for stage 2 for the A3, R Tech quote 250 taking into account all mods....difference is mapping via RR or via road.... i know roads best but tbh think the misus will want the cheapest

    No difference for the end user, just the way the map is put onto the ECU, thats all.

    Rtech are going to do mine and i am more than happy for them to bench flash it

    Yeh like everyone has said already, you'll be fine. Think mine had a trial at some point because i wasn't able to remap it through the OBD port, had to do a bench flash.
