Re: 1.2 8v remap? worth doing?

is an 8v version? if you look on remap company websites that will show you a rough idea on the gains, a punto 1.2 hardly has any (under 10bhp last time i checked)

Re: 1.2 8v remap? worth doing?

yeah the 8v mate, its not to bad for a 1.2 quite nippy, but not nippy enuff really, ive done a few lil mods to it like big airfilter and exhaust but its not fast enuff, it can get to 70/80 quik enuff but ****s out after a ton but have had aroun 110 -115 out of it

Re: 1.2 8v remap? worth doing?

Wont make a massive difference. But together with an exhaust etc you could push it. I have a 1.4 8v and I know i wont get much out of it, but I enjoy messing with it, if you enjoy messing around and you wanna get it mapped, go for it mate...then you could maybe let us know what difference its made?

Re: 1.2 8v remap? worth doing?

This may not be his first car, for example, after getting my punto after having a corsa b i thought the 1.4 8v was 'nippy' compared.

I'm sorry but you have the same engine, 1.2 8v + 1.4 8v same engine, different bhp. So yeah quite nippy lower end being an 8v, instead of a 16v.

A dead slug wasn't the point I was making, it was the small difference between the same engines.
