    Costwise you're not far off a decent remap when looking at the Superchip stuff. Have you changed the backbox aswell as the centre pipe? If you have and coupled with the other things you've done a remap should see a decent improvement but nothing mindblowing, maybe 125bhp or thereabouts at a very rough guess?

    Chips I think start £200+, with remaps pushing £300 or so but the remap should be tailored to your car whereas the chips tend to be a default map and perhaps won't get the most from your car.
