No no no no!!! They are second only to HID kits in the worthless piece of junk stakes :)

Basically they trick the ECU by giving false data so it over-fuels. They have been known to cause serious damage and the actual gain won't be anywhere near the claimed gain!

Save the money and remap it properly :)

Indeed :D

So a 115 remaps to around 145, some tuners will take it well above that but personally I wouldn't want to risk anything more then 150. Depending on where you go will depend on the cost, take a read of this thread:

I would want it took to where the best Mpg is personally, im not too fussed about loads of power gains but I do understand that it does have a bearing on the Mpg for the better (up to a point) or am I wrong?

Mirez, did you say yer man over in Hull sell's already mapped Ecu's for 90 odd quid?

I did mine because I wanted just a tad more power, the fuel economy came with it :)

Yeah that's how much Lee used to charge, you send him your ECU then he recodes it and sends it back. You are without the car for around 5 days or he'll send you a temp ecu.
