    Did you have it dyno'd?

    My 170 had a fair amount of turbo lag which was reduced massively by a remap. Found I didn't have to drop it down a gear in a lot of circumstances whereas I did before.

    didn't get it dynod but didn't go for a big power curve aimed for a more linear delivery of power, I know what u meant about the lag all good now

    Is your DPF still intact ? I heard that keeping it in and remapping will greatly reduce the life of the Filter

    I kept the egr intact and the the dpf for now just had the egr cleaned out, if I removed the egr at some point then I will have to get the guts of the dpf removed as well to prevent said blockage ;-)
