    you will be fine mate go for it and enjoy every minute of it. As long as your car is well maintained then i cant see you having any problems. most cars get wear and tear on pipes if so just change it do a search on remaps u will find loads of info

    Nothing to worry about, I am running a Revo map.Just like the standard car, check for splits in pipes around the engine (intercooler pipe. intake pipe etc).

    Your Revo specialist should do a health check before the map :)

    Usual mate, clutch slipping due to extra strain, coil packs going (quite common after remaps), hoses popping off due to extra boost.

    Just do the usual checks, make sure all hoses are hole free and secured and like said the specialist should carry out a health check.
