[QUOTE=Grahameo;4533114]Just curious... With the remap's extra BHP and torque, did you uprate the brakes, tyres clutch plate and suspension first?
If not, then I wouldn't worry too much about the fuel ecomomy... It won't last that long.
Cat amongst the pidgeons time but somebody has to say it for the sake of common sense!
Old saying.... "Prevention is far better than the Cure"
Or if you prefer this one "Failure to prepare is preparing to fail"
Im not sure that you fully understand why some people have a re-map or indeed some of the benefits which for me (and im guessing macoroni from what he has said) is all about driveability not just out and out power.
We know that to pass emissions (inc noise) tests at the point of type approval, a manufacturer may have to make a series of compromises (is a flat spot at certain revs accidental an indirect way of reducing an emmission......i will let you decide).
A remap can therefore get rid of all these compromises and make it drive just like Mr Romeo would have liked to have sold them to us without our EU and tree hugging friends getting in on the act.
Of course the biproduct is more power and noise
but i would be very surprised if modern brakes and tyres will not tolerate an extra 15%
