    just googled his name and got the number, will give him a call on monday, thanks for the pointer, I have ordered a 007 dump valve today, my plan is gt28 route but prob not for another year due to moving house, im planing on a 3" system turbo back in the new year so would it be ok to get it mapped now and then fit the exhaust in say feb-march time ? thanks in advance

    If you want to maximise potential after more modifications post remap, you would need to get it custom mapped again after any and all mods.

    So if you want to save yourself a few hundred £££ get it mapped after all engine mods.

    I'd do the remap first as when you sit down and workout the costs of a big turbo and all the bits you might realise its a lot of money unless of course you can do a lot of the work yourself.

    £399 for the map and £45 for the rolling road. Prob not the cheapest but they are the closest reputable tuner to me with a 4 wheel rr.

    Looking at the rolling road results...
    Most of the cars with phase 1 made very simular results.
    Dont alot of companys offer a trial period?
    I think there are about 4 or 5 diffrent generic remap companys out there.
    Try and blag trials from them to see what you think?
    I think most say its how the power is delivered that seperates them.

    I used to think remaps were expensive,but if you compare it to a 200 quid induction kit which in my opinion will give you next to no increase in power on an s3. i got 60 ponies and 70 torques from a map. Its pretty good value considering it now feels like a new car.

    I can get alot of the work done for the big turbo but due to moving it may be 18 months time, the car def needs more go so a remap it is, I live in newport but dont fancy germania, id rather travel a bit and go for either badger or tsr as other people have testimonials, thanks all
