    When remapping its worth to shop around and be prepare to travel. I live in port talbot and travelled to Wolverhampton to p-torque. I have had revo before and feel p-torque suits me better. Personal choice but shop around

    you cant go wrong with a revo map but as above, so a bit of research and comparison before spending your hard earned cash

    P-torque charged me £265 for rolling road runs before and after and remap. Car is now 260 bhp and 300 lbs torque. Revo wanted £350£-400 without rolling road

    Yes Rolling road before and after to check everything out.

    What do you drive?

    I went to Badger 5 - had a REVO Remap and enjoyed the drive back ;)

    Don't get hooked up on power output. It's the way the car drives and delivers the power rather than the total bhp etc. I have driven a car with a remap - I won't name and it drove terrible. You get what you pay for in my opinion

    no on mine its a preset map that is non adjustable, think you can get a free trial on certain REVO remaps a sort of try before you buy

    I'm In the same boat, living in llanelli, south Wales and will be looking to book my Leon cupra stage 2 mapped, I spoke to Craig at Gotboost, he was very helpful, i was bit put off when he said that I would be looking at 215-220 bhp out of a stage 2 map. But on the other hand I ain't heard anything bad about them.

    I think I will probs take a spin to badger5 tho.

    Revo trial is available. A good idea to get a sample of how the car drives.

    Problem being I live almost 2 hours from closest Revo specialist so would be effort to go get trial come home to go back again if I like it. So might just bite the bullet and get It done

    PhilW used Got Boost for all of his work when he went to BT (400bhp+ mk3 Ibiza). I know Craig & he's very clued up!
