I am wanting to get my car booked in for a remap soon.

Found a few places ranging from 350-550 for about same gains 30-40bhp..

Now rica?? Is it a live map or replacement chip? how much does it cost? and what gains can I expect on my T4?

And info appreciated guys.

I believe, and I could be wrong so as Nat says PM Adam, that the standard map for a 98 car is a rewrite of the chip (chip comes out, it's flashed and replaced). Nearly undetectable etc Newer ones are live and done through the OBDII port.

With a bit of luck I'll be getting my S70 remaped next week. Actually getting a standard remap initially once the car has been checked over. So pulling out the ECU and posting it to Adam. When I've some more cash and more importantly time I'll go down to have it custom tuned.

When and to which address did you send the email? The Scottish place can indeed do the upgrade.
