    Remap benefits.

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi all, thinking of having an engine remap and fitting a performance air filter. I posted this a while ago but had no response. What benefits will it give and is it worth it. Can anyone recommend a decent company in the Birmingham area...

    Any change will be minimal. That’s not to say don’t do it. I put a piper Cross filter on mine and I think it helped with a flow so eliminated a flat spot or too. But no power improvements just drivability, deffo get a remap it makes huge difference depending on you engine. Which do you have ? Petrol or diesel

    I got my 2L Diesel done withe RemapKings a few weeks back.
    It made a heck of a difference, going from 140hp to about 180ish, but aside from the power increase it's just a lot smoother in delivery.
    No flat spots. They did have £100 off when I did, so definitely worth a punt!

    So a power increase, but at what expense in fuel economy?

    Fuels stayed the same if not slightly better apart from when you give it the beans . You could get an eco map for economy

    Usually approx. 250/300, rolling road is a bonus too,as you can see before,and after bhp,and torque figures
