    ResponseChips in Durham, anybody heard of them? I am struggling to find a map for my motor that costs less than £400 and is in the north.
    Dont fancy an 8+ hour drive

    I don't think that distance is the main issue here; the bigger problem is how much extra BHP will they squeeze from a normally aspirated 1.8 with just a remap? If it was the 2.0T, then for £400 you'd expect 30-45 BHP extra, with the 1.8 it will be a fraction of that increase.

    Not really all that interested in having huge bhp gains-if bhp was my main concern i would have just bought a more powerfull car like the 2.0t. I like the car just the flat spot between 2000-4000 rpm is a bit of a pain in the arse. Plus increased mpg is desirable

    Also, I keep saying this but you do get more with a vvt. Its not going to be like a turbo charged car, but instead of the 5-10% increase you get on a normally aspirated car you may get 10-15%. Its not much but is better. Look at toyota forums and they get a lot more from a remap....

    I guess it is like fitting fast cams?

    Mine is mapped really well from standard, no flat spot, thats why I have not had mine mapped, because I don't want to change this. Pulls from about 2,000 to the top...

    Vehicle : Hatchback

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 1.8vvt

    If it's purely the flat spot I thought my 1.8 vvt was a lot smoother after the airbox mod and a pipercross panel filter.
