    Default Dear Tony (Caterman)....

    In answer to your question "To remap or not to remap"...

    Yes do it!!! It is MUCH better, car drives better and feels better. Quicker, more power and is frankly awesome. Just make sure someone who knows the 1.9 engine does it properly.

    I recommend Triple Eight who have done extensive work on the engine. Both my Vec and Astra are awesome!!!

    I know ol' Nutron and Plasma have also had theirs done

    Still undecided John, one minute i'm all for the remap, then i think that it is a lot of money to spend for the basically the same as i have with the box I know you say they drive differently and, yes i have looked at that side of it but people that have driven mine are amazed at how quick it is.
    Oh bum.......................more thinking to do

    Dean, make sure you have plenty of diesel for a good test drive. I'll take you round some really scary roads around here! (Motorway! you will be in Wales m8 )

    I don't think you could get a better endorsement of the 888 remap than Dean's performance today, awesome mate.

    Forget about the box+map and save your pennies for the stage 2 map from them, tell them about your performance today, offer to run with a big 888 magnet sticker thing next time and you might even get it free!

    After the DT UK Rolling road day at Northhampton Tony I would say stick to a box on the 1.9.
    All the figures for cars fitted with the DT UK boxes were better than those that were re-mapped.

    Some were better than the 888 Astra too
