I emailed angeltuning a while ago now... please see below for thier reply... Thier free "return to standard" policy seemed like a good, safe idea.
Hope this is some help to some of you...
Thank you for your enquiry. We offer engine remapping, the modern version of chipping which the correct way to safely tune a modern engine. With ECU remapping you get smooth and progressive power, with improved response, that can be tailored to your requirements. We offer a fast and friendly service from our fleet of new vans, which are fully equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment as well as a vast array of tuning hardware.
Our charge for the 1.6TS is £295 all inc. This price includes the engine tuning work to add up to 12bhp, (14lb ft torque) pre and post testing, acceleration testing and travel to your home or workplace wherever it may be in mainland UK. Our pre tested and proven engine maps can be customised to the car and the drivers requirements (hence the “up to” as we can do less if required), then tested on the road, where it counts using a calibrated performance meter when conditions allow.
We can also provide a package with the excellent BMC Direct Air Intake System Induction kit (see www.angeltuning.co.uk/dia.htm
) . Whilst the DIA increases the power on its own, it also allows us to increase the power of the initial mapping due to the improved air flow rate. The total package price on this is £375 all inc for everything included in the mapping, plus supply and fit of the DIA. This combination package will give you an additional 17bhp and 21lb ft over standard.
Whilst we are unable to give an accurate figure on the improvement in economy after your car has been tuned, most people get between 1-3mpg improvement on petrol vehicles providing your driving style and the speed you drive at does not change! As the engine is running more efficiently, the emissions are actually improved so there will be no problem at MOT time should you have the car at that point.
We would like to state that we are not the sort of company that tries to get the ultimate extra 1bhp at the expense of drivability just to look good on paper or on an internet forum. Unlike some tuning outlets, we do not quote the power figures from a single dyno run set up to acheive a short term burst of power to win your business. We know from vast experience what these cars can take long term and our aim is to achieve the best combination of power, longevity, economy and as mentioned, drivability.
The ECU remapping we do is physically and diagnostically undetectable. Of all the cars we do, some 75% are either brand new (i.e. pre delivery for dealerships) or under warranty because of the stealth nature of it. However, we do understand owners concerns, which is why we offer a free* “return to standard” for any owner who is concerned about taking their car into the dealership with the modified mapping on.
ECU remapping is fully reversible, which means if you are unhappy with the results on the day, we will return the car to normal and thank you for trying us. After this, we offer a 14 day "cooling off" period** during which you can at least get the chance to test our work over distance and familiar journeys. If once again you are unhappy for any reason, we can either modify what we have done or indeed return the car to standard and give you a full refund.
When you come to sell the vehicle we can return the car to standard for you free of charge****. As a previous customer we will also offer a 25% discount from list price on your next car too.
