Was talking to someone on here who chipped their ECU cheaply with a Czech guy from [email protected] if you're interested.He didn't get much more power,but better throttle response a bit more grunt low down.Basically he pointed me in the direction of flashing the ECU told me to buy a cable off ebay,read the file off the ECU email it to him,he'd rewrite it and send it back.He also gave me the option of sending me a chip to solder into the ECU.Did a little more homework and if you have any power interuptions or whatever while flashing the ECU you could accidentally erase it!Not good..I have a mechanic friend with an Evo who does stuff like that all the time,he reckons it's fine,but it makes me a little nervous.I'm making an induction kit at the mo,so would like a remap at some point.Wouldn't say you'll get much more out of it anyway,so don't fancy spending silly money on it..I suspect the file yer man was going to sell me for 40 pounds is probably the same as what that garage is using.At least if they make a mess of it you have some recourse though.
I'd be of the same opinion. A map can kill a car and/or make them worse. I know some of the diesel maps out there are useless. So I'd prefer to go to someone who has a reputation rather than their own website bumpf.

I'm starting this thread as an update to the previous Owner Register thread & I think this thread might as well also be used as an Introduction thread as often there is an overlap.
As before can members please include the following info in their post & I'll update the list with the info...
OK I think its about time that we had a chat thread in the Irish Lounge :)
Hopefully this will help keep some of the other threads in here on topic ;)
