    i think iirc, dont hold me to this, piggy backs are best if your planning big mods like turbo conv, inlet manifolds, cams etc, but if its filter and exhaust jobbie then remaps are best!

    Not 100% sure, havnt really looked into it,

    Dont even think about it .....
    declare everything for insurance...I dont want someone like you crashing into my car and getting your insurance voided and me having to try and recoup money off you through the courts

    It's just not worth it.
