    Sounds like a fair deal, d5 is no slow coach.

    Yes it does go well , it is tuned it made 208bhp 440nm, on devil developments dyno,
    I have always liked the R, my mate has a montune st275 mk3 focus and that feels very good, he had a test drive in the mk3 rs mountune 375, he said it did not feel much better then his st 275, the rs is heavy, so that may be why,
    your R should be good when you get it back,

    Hope so! I have never taken it over 4K revs as so worried by block stories. I enjoy the initial shove more than ragging it anyway. I just thought as getting all the other stuff done, I might as well have a map too. Hoping to keep it a long time, it’s my spare car. Daily is a Nissan Leaf ��. 208bhp!

    Yes the D5 is no were near as powerful as a T5 or the R But the feeling of the torque is very nice, red line 4.500,
    I also have the early DO88 intercooler with out the map sensor fitting, as my sensor was in the top of the engine, but I now have fitted a 4bar map sensor so I had to fit another pipe with a boss for the sensor in the outlet boost pipe, so no over boosting, as the STD one was only 2.5bar, so with a remap it had no protection for over boost as it could not see it, but now it can, I had to edit the ecu for the new sensor, I can also switch between the Volvo standard 163 map and the 208 map, in the car with a remote control,

    Nice, is that expensive to get something to switch the map? I’d quite like standard and mental!

    you need you STD one, so get shem to email you the STD .BIN File from the ECU read,
    Then you need to write I to a new flash rom, I do have the gear to do this,
    then you can piggy back the one fitted in the ecu, there is a pin on the flash rom chip
    that you can use to select ether chip, and you need some resisters, and a cheap remote control tx/rx ebay or amazon,
    with my d5 ecu , it uses a flash rom half the size of your ecu in the R , so I removed and fitted a larger flash rom 2 times the size of my std one,the new one is the same as yours, (i do have more chips in stock as I had to buy from china) before fitting the new chip I had to program the two maps std and remap on to this chip,
    so it only cost me about 30 and my time, I already had the programmer and all of the smt Hot air soldering gear as I do electronics for work and hobby,

    I can’t say I understood all of that, but I may have to give you a shout when it’s back if that’s ok?

    Yes that's fine
    you need to get the original .bin file from shem, the one he downloaded from the ecu before the new remap,
