    Certain unscrupulous remappers can make your computer over-read.It is certainly not impossible to do.They have also been known to make the speedo over-read !

    The usual give away is that your computer starts to read better figures the moment that the car has been remapped,and then it settles down again at the higher figure.

    I borrowed one VXs 'loaners' the other day while mine was in for the rear springs being replaced.It was obvious that the little litre Corsa had its speedo made to over-read.I reckon it's done to stop people speeding,not that there's much danger of that in a one litre Corsa.
