    well... more imortantly...

    What car is it? What's the motor?

    -And without a dyno, you'll have no proof of ANY numbers.

    I call a scam. -I bet that if you take it to a dyno, his claims will be shown to be entirely optimistic.

    If it's anyone who's halfway reputable,there should be a company name,and at least some evidence of prior work done.

    Going to "some guy" who's a "mate of a mate" and expecting results the equivalent of say,Revo Stage1 is asking for trouble.

    Just for the record...all maps are "generated" by a computer program of one sort or another,it's just that some are generated by people who have experience and knowledge of the engine and ECU they are dealing with.

    There is a little bit more to the REVO map than just a few tweaks lol

    He is going to need a bit of road where he can hold the car flat out and work his lap top and even then he will not know if what he is doing is working.....

    Sounds like a "turn the boost up" job and sod the consequence..

    For an s3, personally, I would go with a reputable company.

    It is an expensive car to just put on a random map for the sake of a couple hundred quids saving.

    Revo and the likes are tried and tested.

    Would be interesting to know whos doing the coding for him,and what his results are.

    Seriously though,why spend a couple of hundred bucks hiring a mate of a mate who allegedly does a lot of remapping,when you can get the most widely used in the business,with known results,and good backup,for just a couple of hundred more.

    As a lot of others here have also said,I wouldn't send my S3 to someone that didn't know what he was doing,and that I hadn't checked out first.
