    The BSR maps are good and well tested, but as said the support is pathetic, personally I wouldn't touch BSR with a barge pole. There's a lot of other re-mappers out there from the smaller guys (search the forum for Torquing BHP as Daryl has a very good reputation on here) or the bigger guys like Maptun that myself and a few others have dealt with. There's hundreds of them so do your research and go for what you feel suits you best with the budget you have to play with.

    You could also make mechanical adjustments and fit a bleed valve, There alot of bad hype about running lean etc.. but i have run one since owning the car and have had no probs and no spikes. If setup properly you can gain nice power and so much more pickup.

    Again this is only my opinion but it worked fine for me and changed the car into a quick little runner and at a cost of no more than £20.

    There are horror stories though but if you wanted to go this route i would be happy to help you and set you up also you could see mine and feel what its like.

    i have run mine redlined in most gears and it fuels fine and the turbo is only boosting slightly more so not over working it.

    maybe a cheap option depending on your budget.
