    Default Cheap Thrills ? ....

    right, I have a 1.8 signum elegance 05 pre-facelift. Everywere I look it apears there is no such thing as a superchip / remap ect, only thing I can find is a £4k turbo.......( **** that lol ) appart from a supercharger on ebay ( would never trust lol ) and a few chips on ebay that say can be used with any car - if you car ****s up its not our fault and take it off imediately !!!! --- is there such a thing as a chip for a sig 1.8 and if so, is there a cheap one? or a cheap way to DIY or something ?

    i think you can get a remap for the 1.8 not to sure tho
    give thorney motorsports a ring and they will tell what can be done or not.

    Unfortunately m8, you would have to spend about £300/£400 for a remap and all it would do is take you from 120bhp to 130bhp roughly, you wouldn't even notice the difference.

    If you want more power or substantial increases from a remap you'll have to buy a bigger engine with a turbo.
