    thanks Guys
    If you leave it standard you will notice a huge difference. I've driven both and the 120 feels like the 2.0 dti I had on my Astra G.

    Brocks had his remapped and it produced around 168 BHP on the Rollers.

    Boxes I've no experience of.

    IIRC the insurance group for the 120 & 150 is the same but remap the 120 & it will probably attract an additional premium

    I'm sure the mapped 120 actually develop higher torque. Its a side affect of being an 8v compared to a 16v which develops more bhp.
