    Remap on high mileage

    Basically awesome are doing remaps for £150, which I want to get
    Only thing is, Im thinking about the condition of the turbo and clutch after the remap if I get it,
    Mines bkd engine done 96,000 miles, mostly motorway miles, full audi service history, it's 140 bhp
    What do people think?
    I havnt had any problems with it pulling now, just the usual egr vale sticking and intercooler pipes leaking

    I'd be more concerned about the turbo. My turbo popped 1,000 miles after a remap on 75k.

    Check out this site "darkside developements"
    http://www.darksidedevelopments.co.u...kd/,:wub::wub:
    Their demo car is EXTREME as diesel tuning gets on a sensible budget and is used as a daily driver it also has a current millage of 117000 miles and as you will see from their build page it started to get modified at 109000 miles!!! so dont worry about mileage ,
    from your profile there not that far from you either

    It was mapped at 109k, an upgraded turbo kit at 111k
    The main concerns are turbo and clutch/dmf when mapping and it's had all of them upgraded.

    I wouldn't worry though with 96k.

    if you get to 111000 clicks on your std clutch you've won a watch even on a std engine,

    depending how u drive of course
