    Best way to be sure if its a 210BHP model or 225BHP is to check the engine code.

    APY = 210 BHP

    AMK= 210 BHP

    BAM= 225 BHP

    Hope this helps.

    2002 most likely 225
     
  5. You'll find the engine code on the left hand side, at the front,stamped on head. You will need to remove the engine cover and check near the timing belt. Quite easy to see.

    re-map wasnt good. the problem was the car had not been serviced like it said it had in the book. Its had the same oil for 50k and same plugs for ?. as soon as the re-map was done it would get to 3000 and judder like it was miss firing. Its going for a full service next week. luckily it was a free 5 hour trial so effects wore off. It seemed alot quicker up to 3000 than before so i might go ahead with it after the service is done.
