    remapping - chipping will seriously increase the chances of ECU failure.

    I think you will gain approx 40bhp and price ranges from £300 to £500 ish.

    if chipping is done right then there is no reason why it should cause a problem!!

    but remapping is always be the better option.

    what would i gain more bhp with a chip or re-map? is the difference in price between a chip and re-map? also would i need to upgrade anything else? am i right that the engine in a cupra is the same as a 220bhp engine in an audi tt? or is that rubbish?

    a re-map is the normal sort of thing to do...dont know anyone that chips it. well its the same base engine, just the audi tt engine has different compression, injectors, maf, turbo, and things like that

    You want a Re-map mate , no opening of your ECU involed , they simply plug into your serial port and flash the ECU with new software , job done. You don't have to upgrade anything else if you go for a generic type map like Revo.

    Not really , different internals , compression ratio and turbo ;)

    Do a search on Revo mate , loads of info on here .

    THe problem is you don't know if it is any good or not - or if the person doing it is untrained (but has done loads)

    would it be best to change some of the other standard parts if i get it re-mapped? can the turbo handle that much bhp?

    Depends where you go, approximate prices:

    Forge 007 diverter valve £95,
    couple of Jubilee clips for new diverter valve £2,
    Green panel filter £35-40.
    remap £375

    You could fit the panel filter and diverter valve yourself, 30 mins tops.
