I have used red dot and they were very good.

Don't bother telling your insurance, not worth the sky rocketing premiums for something they won't find.

Re: Re-Map

red dot, Il look into it

did your map give you the 177 ? Look at the torque figure :wow:

I guess its a pretty noticable difference on the road then, there any negative points? reliability issues, warrenty issues ect,

Thanks

Yes those figures from the map, others who have used red dot have seen higher figures, the only drawback is the smoke that billows from the back, can be a b*stard to keep clean especially when wet. But yes well worth it and a massive difference on the road, do it

Re: Re-Map

I would say tell the insurance company, especially if you are posting on a public forum - do you have forum stickers on as well? Do you think insurance companies are that naive?

To declare the remap on the 100HP, once the actually sort it, will only cost me £40 additional premium - cheap, for peace of mind.

I don't have FF stickers, and i've never posted a picture of my GP with my reg on it so I think i'm safe.

I wouldn't worry about the smoke the pros outweigh the cons.

Re: GP SPORTING 1.9jtd TUNING

Hey people,

Just bought 06 Reg Orange Grande Punto Sporting, well impressed. I was just snoopin around when i come across some of the claimed modification results.

I know you lot are saying you should go to a tuning shop but currently on ebay there is a tuning kit available for 149.99. Says i cant attach the link until ive got 5 posts but the kit is provided by 'diesel tuner'. Its basically just a plug and play by the looks of it and it claims it can get 165bhp with 360nm of torque.

Just wondering if you could advise me on it being any good?

Cheers Ash

Re: GP SPORTING 1.9jtd TUNING

Sounds like some sort of tunit box.
Not sure if we have come to agreement on them yet.

Some people are saying they are just as good as a remap and offer other advantages. Others say they are not specific enough in the way they provide their power. So can infact eventually damage an engine.

I'm no tech so usually stay out of it.

Re: GP SPORTING 1.9jtd TUNING

It will give the same gains as a remap, but you run the risk of a cracked fuel rail.

For 50 more you can have a proper remap with rolling road results to prove what you have actually gained.

Re: GP SPORTING 1.9jtd TUNING

Okay, cheers people.

Looks like ill be looking into the re-map after xmas. What the issues in terms of removal if you need to 'get rid of it quickly' if you get my drift?
