    mine has only added and extra 10 to the coupe but it is actually a gain of 25(apparently) in the midle gears where the standard map was lacking.. you would have to see there chart for it to see where the power gain is tho.. try there site.
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!

    A turbo car post mapping is not fair comarison as the remap will alter/increase the boost levels as well as refine the other parameters.

    8 bhp as an increase on your max bhp sounds about right for the 1.8, so does a greater increase in mid range bhp and tourque!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
