Remap -Transmission Reliability on 170JTDM

Sorry to start yet another remap thread, but I cant seem to find much about the reliability of the clutch and gearbox (635) after a remap on a 159 2.0 JTDM170. There are endless threads on remaps for the 1.9 and 2.4 but much less about the 170.

I am certainly going to have the EGR turned off but have had conflicting advice as to whether I should remap to around 200BHP as per AlfaTune/Peak Alfa remaps. I'm not too concerned about the clutch ( Although I would be interested to hear about that ) but am much more concerned about the gearbox itself and whether its up to the job as again I hear its a bit marginal.

If anyone has this spec of car and has had the remap done I'd love to hear your thoughts and whether you have had any issues as I'm disappointed with the cars low down response particularly in 1st and 2nd gear where my wife's previous car ( Civic Type S diesel ) would leave the 159 for dead. That said I dont want to kill the gearbox on the 159 ( her new car ) as she would be none too impressed
