    Revo i was you mate. I expect any company will do it good but dont go and spend £150 on a cheap remap because you will just get flat spots and proplems, Your best off going to CC, Revo, Jabbasport etc as they are all Specialists.
    Hope this helps...

    The difference before and after is obvious from the first drive and you'll hear the turbo a lot more too ! My mate had a 2.8 V6 4motion, before the remap he'd leave me no worries, however after the remap was a different story...like hodge said, go to a decent company though...

    I have a chipped UK remap on mine. Had mine done back in November and must admit that the car feels more quicker now than it did when I first got it remapped. Since then, I have added a silicone turbo intake pipe, Forge DV and swapped my induction kit for the original airbox. All in all, very pleased with the map.

    Silly billy lol, Yea i heard alot of people saying that induction is **** on an S3 and blah blah blah, but none of them actuly had owned one? I love mine, Sounds deeper (Not chavy before anyone starts) and gives smoother delivery untill redline....I think any intake has to have some sort of heat sheild to make a differance tho.

    Correct me if im wrong here but i thought Revo was faster than Custom Code at boost but doesnt last as long. They both get the same BHP outta the car. Its just Revo give you more of a kick? Custom code is better if you dont wanna change gear all the time. Would be interesting to have a like for like race to see.

    Revo and CC both quote 190 BHP dont they after phase 1? If so then why do people rant on about how good Revo is. Its the same speed and BHP at the end. Just revo`s have a better kick up the ass :yum:
