    AJQ is ko3 not ko3s type turbo,so less power when chipped,water pump is the same **** plastic impellor type that everyone has,when changing the cam belt put a brass impellor gsf one on.

    am i right in saying that the engines without the drive by wire (i.e. AJQ) are harder to remap? some companys can't do then?

    just that i think i have the AJQ and was going to get it remaped.

    i see some people have replied saying that have drive by wire on this engine,is there any way to make sure if it has a drive by wire befor i go and book the car in to get remaped?

    i think you mean the AGU, that is throttle cable, dont think its much harder to remap tho!

    read on the jabba website they have to remove the ecm to do it rater than flashing it through the obd connector!
