    Default Remaps.....why pay more?

    Take a look at this folks, I thought a remap was pricey.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/OBD-CAR-DIAGNO...item27acfa844c

    Surely this is the answer.

    Seems like a trustworthy seller too.

    Surely you can't go wrong

    True, but how do they make these kind of claims if there is no truth in them??

    Would be nice to test it on someone elses vec first!!

    Any offers??

    you can't go wrong... until your engine gets handed back to you as shrapnel.
    possibly.
    you pay big bucks for the tried & tested remaps because of the extensive testing that went into them during development. Or at least that's what we're told.

    He's not selling maps... its simply tools (apparently freeware he's downloaded and compiled onto CD's) to enable you to have a go yourself... Blimey, I think there's a fair bit more to remapping a cars ecu than just downloading some free software and pressing a button..

    Looks like you just get the software enabling you to do what he lists. I would also understand that you would need the hardware and if you wanted a remap then you would need to write it yourself!

    Dodgy stuff. And it would just be copied software, someone trying to get back the costs of buying the original.

    Avoid.
