    Be carefull remapping the 1.9tdi engine, if it is an aggressive map you will get alot of grumble below 2000rpm if you floor the go pedal.
    i have had 3 awx engines remapped and twice they grumbled alot on the 3rd time i asked for a less agressive map and it was fine.
    for £150 it will be a generic map and may not work well with your car.
    The flywheels grumble really easily on these engines.

    yes its a generic map and ill make myself clear to them i dont want an aggresive map if they get 160bhp from it id be happy with that and the flywheel n clutch is being done in the new year unless it breaks before as i think it's more so near the end of it's life.... im not a rally driver just want a little more overtaking speed but dont we all thanks for the comments as this helps when questioning the said companys with my needs

    Im guessing its not a rolling road remap. I was under the impression these are the ones to go for

    well guys im well impressed the car is totally reformed, it's the best £150 ive spent in a long time the car is driving sweet constant smooth power delivery not over aggressive it's just perfect instead of coming down a gear to overtake now just plant it and overtake with ease....
    awesome gti is truly awesome building with very freindly staff with a nice shop and great viewing area's..... if your considering a map then go ebay and buy it now and enjoy trust me

    hmm, can anyone tell me the cost difference between this and a proper RR remap?

    in my opinion had rr remap in the past i wouldnt call them proper as what it does on the rollers aint important its how it drives on the road.... LIVE maps are always the way forward, but even so i was qouted £300 for custom code remap with rr printouts

    I'd ALWAYS insist on doing a remap with a RR, the before and after diagnostics that they should run will give you an idea of the health of the car and if it's reacting properly to the remap (or if the turbo isn't boosting properly / running too rich / too lean, etc).

    I've seen some mappers refuse to remap a car due to problems with the before RR run.

    Also seen people ask for remaps to be tuned down straight after the remap due to clutch wear, etc.

    Live maps are a good thing, but the rollers will give you more feedback when logging. I had my map done live and then the fine tuning was done on the Rollers once the free flow cat and exhaust were added, my map is a custom code map done by Badger5

    Corect all car's should have a health check before any remap, my clutch went at 48,000 miles, 2 weeks after the remap most will have slipping clutches after a remap, but some are lucky, the car should go on the rollers as the tuner can then fine tune the map.

    i need a clutch anyhows so when me xmas bonus comes ill book it in think i need a DMF aswell as since owning the car there's a clutch judder when pulling off and bit worse when reversing just shake/judder the car slightly but feels poo..... does anyone know if the DMF would cause this judder instead of the clutch itself ???
