    Default MAS Performance! Word Of Warning

    A Person i know (dont really like him so he's not a friend lol)
    Bought a DTUK Box and got 206bhp on a 150 astra on a rolling road last year.. however he sold the box and went for a remap at MAS Performance.. Saturday there was a rolling road organised at Motorscope and he got the grand total of 160.1bhp lol... Just a word of warning

    Do they not offer a money back guarantee or anything..? If so, get it tested straight after and get it back if any problems. There are too many good reviews about them to be typical of them, maybe.

    Just rung to confirm, they can do a rolling road before and after to comfirm results. He said i should get 'At least' 180 BHP from my 1.9. and for £200 cant complain.

    What is your thoughts between a remap and a tuning box? (pros n cons)

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Default

    A guy ran a remap at the weekend on his 1.9CDTI 150ps estate, having had it remapped. It was very smoky and kicked out roughly 175bhp, 270lbft. Having said that, I had ran earlier in that day and got 10bhp more than those rollers.

    The guy who did his own 56mm compressor upgrade turned up claiming 250+bhp and get 1bhp less than me and it kept dropping into limp mode, which I would imagine makes it less fun to drive.

    Doesn't matter how many times I hear these remap claims, they never cease to make me laugh. The CRD-T box is very good at what it does and very flexible, I am running a custom map on the CRD-T with my hybrid with no limp home issues.

    Getting before and after runs at the place doing the tuning is not the best plan. If you can, take it to an independant place before and after, on the same day and look at the change in road wheel power. You are unlikely to see more than 155hp at the wheel with any remap and as standard you should expect about 115hp at the wheel.
