They're just resistors that raise fuel pressure ain't they?


Snake oil...

does it have a 1 to 10 setting? ...if so, what do you have it on

does the smoke stop when you take it off?!?

i've been heard very good things about Angel Tuning, i had one of their maps on my GTV 2.0 Tspark and i also know a couple of people that had a map done on their 156 JTDM and GT JTDM too and both were very happy with the results there was around 40-45bhp increase on each, i know this as we also had a dyno available to us at the time too

I would avoid angel tuning, they're a halfway house between tuning boxes and rolling road remaps, may to get it done properly on a rolling road.

i got a 1 to 15 setting on my chip it is set on 10 at the mo if i take it of it does make a bit of smoke when you put your foot down but not as much as when its on so hink remaps is the way to go

A remap will also cause your car to smoke more. Maybe not as much as the tuning box but it will. I'd still go remap though as there are so many parameters that are also considered like how harsh the power comes and it will be tuned to protect clutches etc. - unless you tell them you don't care about that stuff and have money to burn!
