Depending one what ecu it uses, some old engines are "chipped" instead of being remaped.
What is done is to have the epron chip taken out and replaced by other, with different maps. But it's something that must be made with extremely careful.

Check Autodelta as they have solutions for this. Remember that only old engines are chipped. The more recent engines with different engine management are remaped. Your GTV V6 can be chipped.

When said remap I probably should say chipped...that what I'm thinking of doing...I have a friend that can maybe get the program and I could maybe program it because I work in electronics...Just not well informed in what kind of chip the car uses and If I even have the right programmer...thats what I'm trying to find out

Forget about work yourself the maps!! It's not that simple!

Get the chip from Autodelta or Squadra, as GTV-TB said.

I have tested some of the files, HP and torque were there,
but they all had problems with over boost protection.
Managed all that often trigger it with a boost spike
(maybe my driving:p), fuel is switched off and it feels like
you have to collide with something, and a really dull thing
is that ECU seems to set a "dangerous" flag on the trottle position
where the spike arose and this flag is not reset until the engine
has been switched off, this means that you can not use the entire
trottle register without the boost protection triggers even if
you are not under boost.
(lots of kangaroo'ing befor engin have bin switched off)

After one week I was realy tired of those chips and did go back to OE.

The most sensible is probably using a known chip such as Squadras or to use the Dawes Device to increase the charging pressure when the OE chip seems to be flexible enough to handle a higher base boost.

Also if you run a chip of more or less unknown origin, you should use a wideband lamda so you can keep an eye on that the engine not runs lean, with burned valves and similar as results.

Good luck.

That's like saying 'I'm not paying for the clothes that I bought until you give me back my fur coat that I lent to Mrs Schultz.'
