    you'd prob see another 15hp .. 20hp max...

    it's very very hard to get massive gains out of non turbo'd cars..

    The Map will not give you great peak power but will iron out the flat spot at about 2500-3000 rpm, it'll just make the car more drivable. Don't go spending stupid money if your expecting big bhp its not going to happen.

    ok, thanks a lot guys,

    about 15 is what i expected anyway..
    Will probably get a panel filter and a performance back box, then get a remap later in the year..
    Not to much, but just to make it a little different!

    Thanks again

    I have read that the peak gain to expect is less than 10, around 8 bhp. But as mentioned, it should make the car better across the rev band, to much emphasis is on the peak power figure, I know I don't drive above 5k rpm much!
