    Default Few quid left after Christmas

    So going to get a remap at big fish tuning as they are localish to me (10 miles).
    My question is, I am going to be putting Denso ik20 plugs in at some point soon, should I do this prior to the map, I have put a K&N panel filter in so will mention this to them. Its £199 for the map and my old map on a Disk. I'm not expecting anything fantastic with an extra 33bhp,

    if its a generic map the plugs being put in after wont matter ...but if they are just doing a map for YOUR car ..(which I doubt for that money) then I would put them in first.

    i.d say get them in before hand any way and give the car a good service before the map so its tip top ready for the map and lots of fun afterwards.

    I'm thinking the same, I don't think they have been changed since new & its coming up to 59k so should be due. I cant really see there being to much difference with only 33bhp. I'm just hoping for the best, I will if its a waste of time but at least I can get it put back to standard and get a refund if it's Guff.

    33bhp increase should be easy on a 2ltr Turbo I would have thought!

    Make sure you get a before and after RR

    Its more than likely the increase in the torque that you will notice.
    my bsr map put that up by 40lbs where as the bhp by only 26.

    As mentioned, you should notice a big increase in torque. Depending on if they just going for full max power but a better overall rev range.

    I only increased 16bhp when i had my gsi remapped but the overall drive of the car has improved vastly with really high, low/mid range torque
