I too agree with the re-map route any day, as i learnt the real hard way!!.
I had a digi box ,from dragon performance fitted on my (now properly re-mapped 2.4jtd), and after literally 10 mins of driving, admitidly, with mucho performance gain, it was managment light time, followed by clouds of black smoke and game over!!,
****** from dragon tried telling me that it was my fault!! although fitted as per supplied instructions, and argued about refund until i threatened him with legal action,(30 day money back crap) so got my £300 (not £200 as mention above).
Then it cost me another £400 at alfa main dealers to fix (as no-one else would touch it!!), acording to alfa, my common rail fuel pressure switch had blown,and took out all the earth circuit of the ECU with it, luckily they were able to repair rather than replace, or it would have been about £750 (PHEW!!!)
Heard about nige and angeltuning from a mate, and got him to do a proper job, and have not looked back since, total top guy, Re-map all the way, dont waste your money on the digi ****box like i did!
Hope this advice helps!
