    surely it would have made sense to make sure it was running right before you started to "tune" it?

    Dont get so annoyed dude, im sure the faults are only small.

    Lambda sensors fault is likely to be the first lambda ( £50 ) or your cat is dead (reason for a de cat £150)

    Engine coolant temp faulty readings - new temperature sensor £20

    Not sure one the clutch but you should delete them and see if they come back, could have been sorted but fault codes not deleted

    Im really surprised Revo did not take the opportunity to fix your faults while it was there instead of turning you away?

    Was the check light on?

    WOW !! thats what tuners should do, there are so many that choose to clear the faults and continue regardless. Then we get the posts stating REVO messed my car up etc. Like so many we have seen recently ( mentioning no names)

    Thumbs up from me !

    I happen to agree with you aswell Mark, given that list of possible issues I wouldnt expect any tuner to do anythng until these are resolved, they should of offered to try & resolve this at a cost of course.

    Maybe the tuner concerned doesnt have the facilities or time currently, as REVO can be done by many agents now

    This is true, problem is tuning for most is a fairly profitable & quick job overall as in alot of maps are generic, depending how good they are they could make 1-2k a day, so working on repairing cars isnt as lucrative, personally I prefer a challenge, but the money you can make with mapping alone is hard to turn away huh, as you say Mark, some tuners will clear faults & wont test properly to see if they come back on a test drive, thats where you end up with issues.

    Thats not bad mate...dont get bothered.
    In my opinion a car must be near top shape before getting a remap, this way you make sure you get no problem later on caused by the remap.
    PS: I didnt know the clutch swith does store a fault code...its an easy repair and cost around 12 from the dealer

    you presume they carry spares for every eventuality, which they most likely wont

    fix it, or get them to fix it if they have facilities, and all will be good

    you should be greatfull they chose not to map it for a quick buck, but refer you to the faults, advise you to get them fixed before returning

    remaps NEVER fix inherant faults, they only make things worse.

    They have done the exact same thing I do.. except i have lambda's in stock, and spare maf elements too, coilpacks etc.. all the usual suspects when things go wrong.

    It sounds like they did the right thing...why map a car thats going to have a load of issues because of the faults.

    I'd be happy they turned it down if it was my car for sure, you need a clean bill of health before tinkering with things like that.

    PS: They're all easy things to sort too so dont stress :D

    just out of interest, what stage map were you going for? I notice you've had a turbo upgrade so thought you would have had it mapped already

    from what i understand banshee you really dont need an upgraded manifold for the figs we are talking about...thats why im going fmic then stage 2 with rtech..... the S3 exhaust is hardly restrictive for power under 300bhp
