    EDS Z18XE Software

    I've got a cat-back exhaust + enclosed air filter and considering the EDS software to finish performance mods off. Not interested in doing anymore to the engine as will probably be selling within the next 6 months but wouldn't mind a little bit more for the time being.

    Cost is £295 and figures are 123bhp to 140bhp, 170nm to 201nm which seem's a decent increase for an N/A engine.

    Has anyone had this done - was there a noticeable difference and worth the money?

    mate your not finished, you will really benefit from a lexmual manifold.

    I think the bhp is realistic with the mods you have done but I would go for the manifold for a bigger increase.

    also the map seems expensive. especially as I was quoted £350 for a live map.

    map price seems normal, and you will find it does what you need, will free up some revs get rid of some flat spots and give you a high rev range...

    go for it

    A live map is a waste of time unless you have a turbo or a supercharger (runs for cover).

    Get the lexmaul manicat as Haulme says, he's had great results.

    those lexmaul manicats are serious money though arnt they i thought 700+ could you not get a 4-2-1 for a x18xe1 and fit a sports cat under the car?

    why did they make the x18xe1 with a proper manifold and seperate cat and then make the z18 with the stupid manicat thing

    im hopfuly try and get to 140-145 but ive got a carbon induction kit, straight through centre box and a irmmy backbox but im gunna be doing an enlaged throttle body and reprofiled cams them if i can afford it a map to tie it all together
