    is there any big engine problems it can cause?
    like having to change things every couple of months.
    thanks in advance.

    I've had mine mapped for a year now and not had any issues. If you get it done somewhere reliable that knows what they are doing, it should be fine. But as with anything I guess it depends on your driving style. If you leave a mm of rubber behind at every set of lights then things are going to wear out quicker, but thats true if its mapped or not.

    I was going to upgrade my clutch, but in the end am waiting for the OEM one to wear out. I figured a map increases the potential power. But how often do I actually apply 340lbs of torque to the car?

    i thought so, i couldn't find any thing about the subject.
    i had the exhaust gasket replaced (as well as the others) and the mechanic said the bolts had stretched
    thanks for the reply's.
