    had my car remapped again yesterday

    Hello every body just thought i would let you all know how i got on with my remaps. Well it all started on the 6th this month i was booked in at msd blackpool for what i thought was a live remap, only to find out it is impossible to live remap a vauxhall ecu because one of the chips you need to replace in the ecu to live map it is inbedded into the circuit board so it cant be done. After picking up the car later that day on the drive home i couldent tell much difference at all i ragged it to really test it but no difference. So the next day i rang them up telling them i was not happy they offered to give me my money back or take a look at the car again,so i booked it in again for them to have another play with it but no good, so i got my money back.Then i booked the car in at chippeduk that was where i was yesterday after they mapped the car they gave it a blast on the dyno and the results are below test drove the car and it felt smoother straight away 0-60 is rapid its got to be in the early 7`s now. jayson said that my plugs have had it and will see better gains with gm ones im going back down there next saturday for a free dyno and i might ask him to have a play with the map again to try and get some more torque.

    Really? Huh, someone should tell Courtenay, Regal and all the other tuners that they're doing something impossible...
