    Right Guys,

    Had a couple of you last time come along to this. Had some very good results.

    Basically you get a before run on the rollers. A Custom remap and after on the rollers for £250 all in or £35 for a rolling road session.

    If you have any doubts I'm sure Byzan_A4 could put your mind at rest. We took his 1.8T from around 140hp to 200hp.

    Will be held here http://www.chippeduk.com/how-to-find-us.php

    Please PM or email me contact detials if you would definately like to attend.

    Thanks, Mark

    Ive been contemplating a remap, and this price seems very reasonable. Just need to clarify some specifics to see if its worth me doing it on my car please.

    A3 1.8T Treg prefacelift model, only mods are facelift lights and new style RS4 18" reps on.

    Ive noticed with the new alloys on the car is a tad slower, no doubt the price of paying for reps rather than OEM, and from upgrading to 18"s but I need to keep the car pratical so not planning to put it on a diet stripping rear seats spare wheels etc, nor have I got alot of cash to blow on expensive light weight wheels etc, you get what you pay for....
    questions are really around the benifits and any cons to remapping?

    as I understand it, remapping will tweak the engine ECU into running more efficiently? ie it thinks theres more cold air in there and hence you get more a performance increase? otherwise how else can you gain bhp without using more fuel?

    If so, it should be around 50-60bhp gain, but do you have any stats on the increase in fuel economy? I know this will depend on how most people drive, but Im getting about 26mpg average, and 280miles on a full tank roughly. Seems a bit low, but maybe thats just my heavy right foot... if I did a remap will it increase that by much? will I really see at least a 50bhp increase?
    should I not bother if the car is standard, and consider other mods first before a map?

    Im concenered, knowing how I drive, if I remap I might use more fuel and end up not being able to afford to run the car. Also will remapping reduce the lifespan of my car? ie im putting more stress on the engine to get more speed, usually somethings gotta give

    My temp sensor looked a bit grubby, tried a clean but still the same, doesnt seem to have any real affect, but would it be best to get it changed for the sake of £20 before remap ?

    Sorry if these semm like chimp questions

    Also what would be the format of the day? ie turn up and wait your turn, or turn up at a specific time and hopefully wait 30mins tops or so, depending on how things go

    Thanks in advance

    hmmm Fuel economy remap doesnt seem worth it for only 3-5mpg, and if I was that bothered about economy and not performance I would of bought a diesel anyway I spose.
    Its that fine balance I think im trying to achieve... £250 does seem a nice price for around 190bhp, and with the added bonus of a potential mpg increase... I spose its just one of those things that would be nice to have but not essential... ill have a think, see if I can bring myself to splash out and give it a go.
    It would be nice, if I do get an increase in mpg, that then pays for the remap... then its worth doing. Easy justification then :)

    If for example you find issues with the car and advise against the remap, I take it id get my money back? or will it still cost say £35 to find that out?

    Also dont suppose you know off the top of your head what the insurance tends to go up by for a remap? ie most companys say £20 for suspension on your premium, £20 for wheels etc, obviously depending on what they are.

    Thanks for the quick resposne btw

    I you drive nice a easy most of the time and only use the power everynow and again, you will see an improvement, but if you redline in every gear you've got little chance, but on a run MPG will be better.

    Insurance varies, depends on who they are. If there are major issue, you will just need to pay for the Run, but It would have to be very serious for us not to do the map. If it just a sensor you can have map done and change the sensor when you get the chance. The only prblem with this is you might not get the correct reading on the Dyno runs.

    Cheers, Mark

    Mark will be back soon, he is probably still at chipped UK HQ

    i recon you should see a good solid 40- 45 bhp and an increase in drivealibity/ Aslo probably an increase in economy, well worth it IMHO

    Hi Guys,

    A big big thank you to everyone that turned up yesterday, it was a fantastic if not a long day for most. You were all very patient in waiting for your turn, we had some very good results and some very good cars.

    Looks forward to seeing you all again in the near future,

    Kind Regards,

    Mark
