    I cannot fathom why you would ask for prices on here when there is a telephone number, fax and Email on their website. Sometimes the old fashion way, i.e. speaking to the supplier, is quicker and better mate.

    I did actually, because it is directly below where the telephone, fax and Email details are . But given that you said you were thinking about saving up for one, I don't think waiting until Monday really mattered.

    Anyway you have already had an answer from Dunk on this in another of your posts:

    a stage 2 hybrid turbo is about 600-700 exchange or about 1200 new, and will need a custom map for about 400-600 to make it work properly


    Edit: I should expain better that my point was I would have asked him on that thread.

    Jabbasport are a very good company but then again there are quiet a few good diesel tuning companies around at the moment that can fit/map hybrid turbos.

    Jabbsport ae good but they do charge

    Some people like paying for tried and tested. Cant argue with their service to be honest but there are cheaper places about i'm sure that will do just a good job but without the reputation!

    I had a stage 2 done on my beetle there
    Milltek, Neuspeed Intake, Neuspeed DV, Remap and it came to 1200!

    ...and that's expensive? I'd expect to pay almost that just for the exhaust.

    Just a back box on a stage 2 car? How's it flowing enough gas for the higher power map?

    Yeah was full system, went back a month later and bought the milltek cat for 300 and had it tweaked again

    Map was 500 of it, thought that was pricey seeing as maps can be had for 250-300 these days

    Personally I wouldn't go anywhere near someone handing out remaps for 300. You really did land yourself a bargain getting all that from a reputable place for 1,200.

    Price has nothing to do with the quality of map, 300-400 is about average for a generic map these days and 500 for a custom map.

    Generic will be based on a std car, custom will be altered to take into account any mods you have (eg exhaust, intake, etc...).

    300 might be a common price, but I'd rather pay the extra and get it from someone I trust.

    Generic maps are a one file map put on every car with that type of ECU. Tuning companies can get hold of generic maps very cheaply these days. "Custom maps" is a very over used word as far as i am concerned as on a custom map somebody might have just tweaked a file or two and hay presto now a 300 map is a 500 map thankyou sir. A true custom map is when the mapper takes into account of all the mods and how you want the car to drive and takes a lot of time and effort to get right.

    I can only speak for diesel maps but the only companies charging more then 400 for a generic map these days are Revo ( good maps but a piss take price ) and Superchips. Jabba,JBS/Custom Code plus lots of other well known and trusted tuning companies sale generic maps these days for sub 400.
