    What mods you currently got?

    You don't need a superchip, you need the current chip remapped. There are lots of places that can do it, but the nearest to you is Chipped UK in Bromsgrove - who are a member on here also.

    Hi teejay, thanx for your reply, but doesnt your car need to turbo for you to re-map the chip or ECU??
    If yes, will that mess up my brains of my car???

    No you don't need a turbo.

    NA cars will still benefit from 10-15% gains
    Turbo Petrols can beneft from 15-30% gains
    Tirbo Diesels can benefit from 30-50% gains from a remap alone.

    So long as you regularly service your car and don't use crap petrol then a remap won't damage anything.

    standard N/A engines benefit next to naff all from a "remap"/chip.

    Id rather nail my nuts to the floor than get a chip/remap from most of the usual suspects lol

    my comments regarding nailing my nads to the floor also extend to the whole unichip thing too..... such a badly implemented system that could have been ace if they werent such pedantic twunts with the software and wiring diagrams etc.

    I spose the fact I didn't get my remap from the 'usual suspects' saves your bollocks in this instance.

    granted I only got 10bhp at the top end, but both the power and torque graphs are smoother and higher throughout the range - which is exactly what I asked for
