    Arrow remaps??????

    ive been reading a lot on remaps recently and im thinking of getting my car done,but i was wondering will i get better performance and higher bhp if i do other mods first ie, cams etc. most companys claim between 10% and 12% increase from the cars original power output for n/a models. so my question is do i wait until i have done other mods or go for it just now?

    Your best off getting a remap pretty much as a last thing so as to speak. As you'll need a remap for the cams to work correctly I'd make them the penultimate thing on my list of to do's.

    First sort out the breathing of the engine.
    Intake
    Induction
    Air filter
    Thottle body
    Inlet manifold

    Exhaust
    Straight through exhaust.
    4-2-1 exhaust manifold (for Z prefix engines sports CAT)
    Sports cat (for none Z prefix engines)

    BANG the inbetween bit
    Uprated spark plugs (iridium jobbies)
    Cams
    Remap

    When it comes to remap time you may want to spend a little more and get a 'live' remap. This sets the MAP stored in your cars ECU to its most efficient to take advantage of every other mod you've done. As opposed to an off the shelf remap which won't give you the full potential.

    Hope this helps

    cheers for the advice

    i have z18xe1 which kind of doesnt help when it comes to things like the throttle body( cant get bigger diameter replacements) and if i want a sports cat or lexmaul manifold then its going to cost me a fortune. was thinking of swaping my manifold for a x18xe1 manifold and replacing the cat with a 200cell sports cat which will work out a lot cheaper.
