ASR upgrade, clutch upgrade

I was thinking about to change the control unit of my abs, into another which can manage asr. One of my friend did it, it was simple, now he dont have spin problems.
Is it worth? I mean i dont know how well will it work, i read in e learn the two way to reduce spining in asr, but there is another thing. Is TCS the same as ASR, or TCS only works by using the brake, and dont send signals to the ecu to reduce the power?
Now i have problems with spinning, and unfortunately with clutch spining too.
The "tuner" who made my remap made a wrong torque limiter, thats why now, when reached 75 mm3 iq smokeless, my clutch starting to say bye. Firstly it spined in 6th gear, after 5th too, now in 3rd after a few run. So i am thinking to change the clutch. Have anybody any good solution?
thanks in advance

On what car did your friend retro-fit ASR?

166 and 156 is of similar age, but to sure on ABS / Electronics Similarities...
In 2002/2003 The 156 2.5V6's received a mini-pre-facelift update that included the introduction of ASR.

With clutch spinning, we tend to call clutch slipping... There are a few threads on uprated clutches - Valeo and GC Mototsport seems like popular options...

The Gearboxes on the V6's and Diesel motors are very similar

Sorry, clutch slipping! I dont use english so often, so i wrote it by mistake, sorry. My car is 2001, and in 2001 166-s could be ordered with TCS, or ASR. Another friend has the same car, and has original ASR. THe next generation is bosch 5,7 with steering angle sensor, g-force sensor, and works as ABS, ASR, TCS, and, VDC.

Thanks for the links, i will read trough them.

You'll find that although the ECU is telling you it is using 75mm^3 per stroke, it is not because the duration map will have been destroyed in order to map it quickly. They won't have taken the time to adjust the rail pressure and recalculate all the new durations for the different pressures, then modified the axis to add higher injection values into the table.

Yes, but fortunately i fixed the problem, made another remap by myself.
