So are you suggesting that in my case a well proven and successful "generic" map would most likely give better results than a "custom" one? Or is it far too subjective to generalise so broadly?
Googling "custom vs generic remap" yields inconclusive results. A lot of people saying "custom" is far better, basically following the same reasoning as me. But who are these people? And what do they know? I'm always very wary of "info" I read online. And a lot of these posts seem particularly opinionated and not founded on any real knowledge. Saying that, though, there are an awful lot of them favouring the “custom” over the “generic”.
Then there are a handful of people who, on the face of it, seem to know what they’re on about, and are talking along the lines of, “it’s very annoying for tuners who spends months and months and lots of money developing a map for a specific engine, and then people call it generic and assume it’s sub-standard in comparison to some monkey with a dyno messing about with things he doesn’t properly understand, etc, etc”. You get the gist.
I’ve inadvertently opened up a little can of worms here, and I’m now very unsure whether I want a “generic” or a “custom” map.
