    Default Airbox mod and remap advice please

    After reading and searching through various posts, I'm already convinced I need to have it remapped & de-grilled........for starters

    Just a quickie, I've just done the airbox mod, and would like it remapping. A colleague has always used the same bloke for remapping his VW's, and he's quoted me £275 (mobile service) to take it to around 150bhp and 315Nm (standard remap he's done before on 120's)

    Would it be better to have it done on a rolling road becuase of the airbox mod, or wouldn't make much difference.

    Cheers.

    Thats a reasonable price for a remap. But do you know other people thats used him besides your mate and then ask them. Because you need an equal balance of software to be inputted, otherwise you will do more harm than good to the motor.

    Hi Phil, thnx for the reply.

    Apart from my m8 at work (who's had six diesles remapped in the past 5 years), two other chaps there have had a Merc van, and a Golf tdi done by him. Have asked both of them, and they haven't had any probs in over a year.

    Got until the end of the month to decide. The BSR quote I received by email was £475 + vat, which is double the price:-( Having said that, it's seems to very popular with diesel owners, so must be very good.

    Credit crunch & all that, might have to settle for the cheaper option. It's not like I'm going for a stage 3, just a little extra pull would be nice.

    Cheers.
