if its a normally aspirated one, not much gains to be had from a remap. Westward engineering or couture auto could do it for you, about 500 for ecu and similar money for mapping

What ECU are you getting for 500?

Depends on where you're based Nivek?

yep the cheapest place to get a power fc is nengun, is costs 800 including controler and extra long wire, westward maped mine it costs 350, he did a ok job, he messed up up to 3k revs but after that im very happy, he also didnt take to kindly to me coming back to him... also he tryed to tell me that pinking is OK, and that the mass air flow meter couldn keep up, but it did with the base map so that was s@3! too.. he didnt know i was a mechanic but this is not ok under and conditions, but if you ask around you will hear horror stories about all the maping places in ireland.

Just a question seeing as we're on the subject of mapping, i know it dosen't do much for the car unlike for some others, the reaosn for this i'm told is that the 3SGE engine is already tuned in house...

my question is, does remapping the car from 103ron (jap petrol) to 95ron (irish fuel) increase or decrease the fuel consumption of the car, or is this dependant on how aggressive you remap the car to be?

it would have been originally mapped to 100 ron which is the standard in japan i think. if it was remapped to 95 it would be down on power i presume so should get better fuel economy, no need to get remapped down to 95, standard ecu can dial back enough to cope with the lower octane fuel

Was thinking that alrite, you hear loads about scoobys and stuff should be remapped or run with octane booster... was thinking about remapping mine before but think it would be overkill although they say you should if you change intake/exhaust (thats what westard said anyway). dunno :?:
