Gus at Alfatune in St. Helens usually gets a lot of reccomendations on here, so he must be good. I'm looking to get mine done in the next few months also.
I haven't had mine remapped but I reckon you'd get between 5-15 BHP gains, but it is worth it because the power delivery is smoother and more linear as you accelerate through the gears.
Personally, before having it remapped I think you should do a few things:-
1) change oil and filter (+ check all other fluids)
2) ensure thermostat, water pump, variator etc. are all running smoothly.
Basically, you should make sure your car has good general health.
In my opinion before thinking about a remap I'd say a decat would be just as effective if not more to start off with, then afterwards start thinking about remap, racing cams, straight through exhaust sections etc.
