    You can save money from a remap, it all depends on how you drive really, if you use the power all the time then no you won't save money, if you potter along at 70 then yes you will. I can do Chesterfield to Bracknell (340 odd miles - mainly all motorway M1, M42, M40, M4) in my 3.0 and get 53mpg showing on the fuel comp (I know it's not forced to be 100% accurate - but I can do that run TWICE on a full tank).
    If you drive the same after a map you may get 3-5% better ecenomy, doesn't sound alot but if it's a 100 mile round trip 5 times a week then you'll get 15 - 25 extra, over ten weeks thats an extra 150 - 250 miles, an so on. If you do more miles, you save more money.
    You have to be a little bullish about it, just get to speed and put the car on cruise, if you need to pass anything then use the speed up/down on the cruise, don't brake hard, use engine braking where-ever possible and don't excellerate hard.

    What difference does it make how you slow down? Surely the trick is to try and be smooth and slow down as little as possible so you don't have to accelerate again.

    I'm sure i've read on here that it's not worth remapping the 3.0 as the gains are minimal

    You'll get around 215 - 230 bhp without changing anything else, there was an op on here that had his Y30DT mapped, made good figures too. The BHP may not be overly high but the torque is through the roof.

    no a rr is only good for measuring the increases. forget the image in your head of someone messing with a laptop tweaking figures on a laptop, while runnning up on a rr, its hollywood, its not possible to live map 95% of the ECU's out there and decreasing by the year as the microprocessors inside change in bit size meaning checksum RSA's get more complex. Only 8 bit EEPROM can be properly emulated on the RR. Most need a tweak and full flash between runs and thats ££££

    Plus a good tuner knows what to change and does not need a rr to prove the increases, I know from experience.These cars either need the Chip removing reading, mapping and soldering back or on later ones they can be done in boot mode via a special J-tag device on the Denso and its not as cheap as a OBD flash

    its unlikely a mobile remapper linked to a master dealer will have the skills to touch this system. Its old school and the realm of real tuners only.
