    Right just to add my twopence worth. I have revo. Yes the power comes in early and shoves you back. HOWEVER. It does not tail off anywhere near as much ad people say. I would say that I still have power at around 5000 rpm. That's the same as others. I'm not saying for one minute that it'll pull as strong as say a more
    linear curve but then the argument could be that you've already had the power and doing the speed from that early burst. Revo doesn't tail off anywhere near as some make out. All in all it depends on what you want. A smooth linear curve/ line or a shove in your back. All will make the same power(ish) just in different ways that's the only real difference. Over and out!!

    Lol not defensive just giving a more balanced opinion that's all. Personally if I wanted a linear response I wouldve bought a n/a engined car.

    I've got a Motech remap as Vagtech was knocking them out for £115 during christmas so I couldnt resist. I was really happy with the remap and had no problems so far!

    Its a bit of difference assuming you went on the RR back to back, same temp, same road and settings, AMD have already told you that the figure are not compareable, and TBH the figure you now have is much closer to what you should have got anyway. If you have a problem speak to AMD direct.

    I bet on the road it doesnt actualy feel any different.

    Rtech are well recomended but i would not try this slagging off thing with Nick, it will get you nowhere. He likes to remain nuteral in these things.

    Anyway back to the original question, mapping is subjective, the main reason i can see for choosing is to choose the dealer closest to you in case you have any problems
