    Hi, another chip tuning related post. Seems to be a lot of them,I have read about most places that do it and peoples opinions exceptfor one company called 'chipped up uk'.

    It is a place not far from where i live that i stumbled across by chance so i popped in for a quote and a chat. i was quoted £295 for my A3 TDI 130 and to expect power in the 170's. As much as i likea bargain it seems rather cheap, which makes me a bit un-easy. And secondly power in the 170's seems quite optimistic when most estimate around 160. On second thoughts though jabbasport rekon 186 is possible.

    Apparently they use a 'viper2' program.
    www.chippedup.co.uk

    Has anybody heard of this company before or have a view on it?

    i got my roling road remap from chipped uk yday. they did a power run before and after the remap. I was dissapointed with the results from the first power run. It showed 160bhp and 165lb/ft of torque.
    But the results after the remap were truly unbelieveable. 212 bhp increase of 52bhp! And 222lb/ft of torque.

    cost £300 and was worth every penny!!

    no they didnt offer any other kind of remaps. they stated me an icnrease of around 40 - 45 bhp for my car from . I dont think chipped uk offer generic remaps.

    However they do something called live mapping, they say its ideal for modified cars. Mine was completely standard so this wasnt really an option.

    I believe that if your car is standard they use a generic remap, which can be done without a rolling road but if you have modified parts they 'live' map the car on a RR to tailor the remap to your mods.
    Not 100% sure at this at all! but that's what i understand from questions i have asked before

    thats a steep rise i would be just making sure you boost levels are not through the roof or you will be replacing the turbo very soon
