    Regals Switchable Map, actuator issues?

    After a bit of advice, but i've only just thought of this, and they're shut now.

    Basically i'm having their switchable map when i have phase 3.5 but..

    ive also got the cosworth -34 actuator on. I've been told you need about 270bhp (which i should have) to run this actuator.

    So im thinking, if ive got this actuator, will I be able to still have the switchable map, because I was thinking of taking it down to say 200bhp.. therefore it wouldn't work with the actuator

    I may be getting confused here, so any information would be appreciated

    you will find the limited boost option is useful in wet conditions - it allows u to put at least some power down, also take your car to a garage and you limit to how they drive the car - same goes for your better half - yes i agree its a gimmick but has its genuine uses

    Its not actually a switchable map guys..... They overide the boost control solenoid with a resistor. Pretty crap really for 100 quid. I can understand the reasons some have them though.......
