    Re-map (chip) is the only real way to go in my opinion.

    Neither for myself, I feel that 150 BHP is more than enough for me

    i'd probably like my 150 tuned to deliver power smooothly insdead of a dolop of turbo when it kicks in and a bit more torqe lower down , and just for fun i think if it had around 185 bhp that would be a happy medium for me.

    i voted tuning box, i know plenty of arguments that have been made against the tuning box but iv'e had mine fitted for about a year now. it's more than paid for itself in increased fuel economy and given me a nice power increase to boot, so all said and done i'm more than happy with mine.

    box is fitted to a 120bhp cdti.

    I voted "chip" 'cause mine isn't in the list.
    Very soon I'll go to EDS ( Germany ). They don't chip the car , but re-write the ecu-software.
    My ride will go from 150BHP/320Nm to a stunning 200+BHP/400Nm !!

    I too voted chip on the assumption that it was meant to be remap...

    My current Vec is standard, although i have had a remapped oilburner in the past.

    This is just my preference & opinion, but... i would prefer the remap over a tuning box purely becasue the map alters all the correct parameters safely & not just the fuel pressure.
