    Arrow Advice

    Hey guys, im new here!

    I was wondering where you guys would suggest going in scotland to get my car mapped up? I live in caithness so i have to travel a fair bit to get to anywhere so im open to all suggestions.

    Its already been mapped once by angel tuning by the previous owner? Its got a vxr turbo, FMIC, Stainless system including precat replacement, also decat pipe but not fitted, Viper induction kit and txautosport tophat n hard boost pipes. So i would imagine i should be able to go for stage 3?

    Also the VXR turbo was fitted after the remap, its boosting 10psi and peaking about 14psi? Is this about right or can i notch it up a bit? I also got a courtenay sport uprated actuator with the car, should i fit this myself?

    All advice much appreciated!

    it sounds like u have the equivelant of phace 1 ( from most tunners ) .

    mapping tools like EDS or IPF etc sound the best solution for u BTH i dont trust them..

    i would ratehr take it to someone and let them do it.. that way its coverd for faults etc and poss get the car on trollers forst to

    try wallace performance in aberdeen OR extreme motorsport in livingston...

    Yeah, spoke to a guy last night who took his gsi to wallace performance. He said they were pretty good so i think i might give wallace performance a shout! I would like to get it on the rollers for a before and after

    Although my bird is at uni in edinburgh so livingstone is possible too?
