    re-maps are better than the boxes in general, i have a box and it has been fine, plenty of maps out there just make sure you are getting value for money and watch out for hyped up bhp claim's, just make sure you service regular and all should be ok

    Remaps claim the earth and never deliver on it. The average remap will give you about 185bhp no matter what they tell you! Beyond 190bhp the car will smoke with a remap or tuning box so that's the realistic threshold. If you want to go beyond that, you need to look at other methods, i.e. :

    - Water/Methanol injection
    - NOS
    - LPG

    I would recommend the Water/Methanol as I've tried it on two cars and had no problem, just good results.

    With a remap and water/methanol injection you should see about 210bhp and around 310-330lbft.
