    Cheap remap

    http://www.remapscience.co.uk/power.html

    Now, Im not affiliated with this company in any way. I came across them while searching for remap info for a mate.

    Anyway, throughout the month of June they are offering remaps for 160! Which is pretty cheap. They could be complete pish, who knows! They dont promise massive gains, which is also refreshing!

    So am I dude, just looked. From memory, and Stage 1 map from R Tech is 250.

    They're spot on as well by all accounts.

    off the top of my head it was 250. they do a basic health check to make sure its worth your while putting the map on then do before and after dyno plots.

    a guy local to me went there. ive see his dyno plots and he has not come back with the usual gay 20vt diesel esq power delivery at all, it delivers the power well and they diagnosed a boost leak in his usual PCV hose

    not always mate, sometimes these place arnt discovered until somebody gives them the chance. Sadly r-tech and revo dealers have the monopoly on this forum and has seemed to become the ultimate place to get a remap... apparently. Personally i think the r-tech guys are bumming the mods

    Im going to start my own mapping company, and charge even more than everybody else, bill gates or stephen hawkins will write my maps ( not sure yet) and i will offer no guarentee

    As you have several? Did make me lol a little.

    Thanks for the info pal, once the site is up again I will look into locations, although the 300 odd for CC remap/Green cotton filter/Forge 007p from JBS is mightily tempting.

    Same as any other stage 1 map or there abouts. Expect up to about 250 bhp.

    got loads, anything would be like eating one sweet from the pick and mix (dont tell her i said that, please?!)

    as for
    >CC remap/Green cotton filter/Forge 007p

    panel filter = no gain (in fact a loss of filtration which is stupid)
    007p = every probably knows my views on that. oe items do die, but often last well over 100k miles. an OE item can die four times over before youre out of pocket compared to a forge and ive know people with a forge still getting compressor surge so i dont beleive they respond well enough

    cc remap = ive seen loads of their plots and almost invariably they result in "gay 20vt power delivery" syndrome which really puts me off these engines. the further you can get away from the car feeling like a diesel the better

    Quite a few replies I see. The old "which remap is best" debate has been done to death. But for someone who fancies a bit more oomph out of their standard 150bhp 1.8t, this remap company is probably as good as any other, only cheaper. Which is why I thought I started the thread. I probably wouldn't take my S3 there, but then I probably wouldn't take it to any of the places that offer generic maps. Mods or not, I'd want a bespoke map on a rolling road.

    post up a few of their plots, then people can see what the outcome is likely to be and then (hopefully) make up their own mind about which map they want (or just follow whichever crowd theyre already following)

    dyno lottery applied to the figures that dynos claim, not the profile of the torque output

    if you have figures which can be different every time then surely it can be a lottery with whats in the graph ?

    peak figures really dont matter though, especially BHP on a dyno because of the way its just a calculation but torque figures generally can be relied on to an extent but its the profile that the plot shows which makes all the difference

    what plot are you referring to as gay 20vt power delivery?
    want more power up the rev range, fit a decent sized turbo

    Me7 ecu is a load based ecu - yea
    applied loads WILL have an effect on how the ecu reacts

    different dyno's apply loads differently
    Different gears will produce different loads, hence different spool characteristics..

    So yes, the dynoplots CAN and WILL be different, some showing much spikier apparent torque delivery than in the real world driving on actual roads, accelerating thru gears, accelerating the fixed mass car etc

    well yeah. the plots ive seen for cars with apr software all basically looked fantastic, i posted some a while back that Badger had compared to an Oettenger one years back.

    before i bought the S4 i was looking into remaps etc and again, the APR ones were no showing daft diesel esp power deliveries, which i personally would want to avoid for a lot of reasons

    but wouldnt it be good to see what the torque profile is going to be before you hand over 150 or dont people want to know what theyre getting before they pay? (just a tip for your website)

    Cheap generic engine tuning doesn't sound great to me. But you pays yer money you takes yer choice.
