JTD clutch and DMF failure

I'm thinking of buying a 156 1.9 JTD and remapping it.

What is the likelihood of the DMF and clutch going on a standard car? Is this more likely on a mapped car?

What about mileage? I'm guessing the higher the mileage the more likely this is to happen.

the clutch and DMF will be under extra strain when remapped, they should last 70-100k but some last a lot longer depending how its been driven

also driveshaft joints can suffer, i had mine mapped, 3 weeks later the inner tripods gave up, but they would have been going anyway, the remapp and the driver managed to finish the job in double quick time !

very likely to worn out but not both (ithink) but def the clutch will. but then depends how u use the car.
my last 2.4 jtd need a clutch at 160kish but this was due to been remap/age/mileage n i think was the original, but not sure. n if the clutch goes on a remaped car u my as well change it for a fast rd clutch
