Just remember that all these remaps are generic. No-one here to my knowledge has had a custom map written whilst the car is on a dyno.
Also, low cost does not
mean lower quality. Its very likely that these two maps are of equal "quality" but Alfatune are just making wedges of cash hand over fist, whereas Angel are happy to make a more modest amount.
Of course how you measure "quality" is open to debate. Some may put keeping torque limiters in place as the most important factor, others may want the best torque/power gains. In my mind I want a map that will make the car a joy to drive, give me a grin, make the driving experience more flexible (less changing gears) and hopefully save a few quid on my fuel bill. The Motormech/Angel map does exactly that.
Its like Coca Cola vs Pepsi. Both are delicious, satisfying drinks but you'll always be able to pick up Pepsi for a couple of pence less. Both have their loyal supporters who would rather die than sample the gastly product of the opposition, but we all know they're pretty much the same.
Give Motormech a chance gents without references to them as a "mob" or casual unfounded/unresearched comments that are obviously a dig. No-one has any evidence at all that their (Angel's) maps are better or worse than anyone elses. Sure, Alfatune have their loyal supporters and thats just fine and dandy. I happen to be a big fan of Motormech and have had nothing but fantastic work done by them for many years.
I'm sure we'd all agree that most main dealers are not that brilliant and we'd all prefer to go to our local, reliable, independent specialist who we probably know well. These people make owning an Alfa possible without them driving us mad and bankrupting us. We should be encouraging them all - not knocking them at every opportunity.
I've never spoken ill of Alfatune or anywhere else, I'm sure they're fantastic. I'd really prefer it if everyone else would think before making loaded comments about other companies.
