    Question Remapping Good, Bad or Ugly?

    Hi, I have a 2004 2.0T Sri that is currently at 173bhp (I think) and been told by one of my mates that remapping is the way forward....
    Sounds ok, but dont know too much about it so have a couple of questions:
    1) What would the increase in power be? Bhp/0-60 etc
    2) Is it legal!? would I have to tell the insurance lot?
    3) Does it damage the car?
    Sorry to ask loads of questions, only registered 5 mins ago so any advice would be muchly appreciated.
    Thank you!
    Paul.

    Welcome to the site mate.
    I think duncun is getting about 220 ish from his BSR remap on his 2LT. It is totally removable from his car with his own pc, so he can take it into the dealer for work and still keep his warranty, then when he gets it home again can then put it back on.
    Yes it is legal and you should tell your insurance about it, but with the BSR its up to you as you can take it off yourself at any time.
    I would say a good remap will operate within the engine limits so should not harm anything.

    There is a group buy thread HERE for the BSR Map. There are many other remaps available and some loads cheaper, but this seams to be one of the best.

    well Duncan has done over 40,000 miles since he's had his 2.0T, most of them with a BSR map on..still goes strong and has no faults...

    Good remappers will always keep your car in a 'safe' state...

    As above, I've had the remap in mine for two years now and covered 40K with it in and not a hiccup. Adds around an extra 30bhp and significantly improves the mid-range grunt. I've had mine on a rolling road at 217bhp and 249lb ft.

    As long as you look after the car, the remap will not be a problem. BSR thoroughly test and develop their products. I make sure I do an extra oil/filter change in between services (i.e. every 10K) as good condition oil is essential if you have a turbo as that's what lubricates the turbo wheels.

    As Rushy said, there is a Group Buy at the moment so you can save yourself a decent amount on one.
