Thanks, it's been very much a work in progress. As you can see, the changes were made incrementally and over quite a long period of time. I like to ponder things a bit and have the money in the bank before I spend it. I certainly made mistakes along the way but you learn from those and TBH it won't be to everyones liking either way. Like many of us car people I tend to look after my cars better than myself!

Nice post/thread! I think I have followed you a few times over the bridge!
Been keen to hear a bit more on your experiences/thoughts/opinions on the remaps vs standard.
Overall I am quite happy with standard. I did take a chipped one for a drive when looking to buy and it was a bit all or nothing which I did not like much.
thanks for the thread....

My first remap was like that - full boost at 50% throttle. Bit silly. The one I have now is progressive. With my car it's a bit hard to do an apples with apples comparison because the lighter flywheel I have changes the way the car picks up too.

But seriously I reckon there are more bad remap files out there than good ones so if you are happy with standard I would stick with that. Rich who mapped my car seems to have been snowed under for a couple of years now. Was doing lots of work it Europe but haven't heard much about him for a while.

Oh cool. Are you running 255s or something wider? I went with 255s (Dunlop sportMaxx RT2) and have about 10mm clearance to the rear arm. Probably could have gotten away with 265s but some tyre brands are wider than others so it's a gamble.
