    Hi,

    I've got my car booked in for a remap but I seem to have an option of a full on aggressive map, or a general improvement map.

    Does anyone have experience with both and was it noticeable? Whats the difference in BHP and torque?

    With the aggressive map are any components liable to fail due to the extra strain? Clutch be ok?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi mate,

    I've experienced both. If you are concerned about fuel efficiency, then take the general map. This increases your mpg and gives you more torque and power. However, if you are mainly looking to improve performance, take the aggressive map, as it has a big effect on performance. The car because much more sporty, and even the sound is different, but as it is fully tuned for performance you lose about 3mpg on the average. There wouldn't be any noticeable strain on components, are least not on mine, as it is not a turbo boost or anything. If you don't care about economy, just take the aggressive map, you wont be disappointed.

    If you want to have both of the types of Remaps we can do on your car

    Then I can supply you with our BW switch Flasher which will hold both Remaps for you to flash when you want

    So you can have the aggressive remap for track days or weekends and the power and mpg remap for driving long distances or to work in the week

    You will be looking at £150 on top for the Flasher if you are booked in for our remap deal

    Dammit that's another option!

    How easy is it to switch? Will the ecu still need time to adapt after each change?

    Surely can't be good switching regularly?

    Is the mpg between the two that much different when driving conservatively?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    One last question I know your maps are catered to each car but do you have a rough idea of what power and torque is achieved with both the generic and aggressive map?

    Thanks again.

    It is easy to change between maps
    a 9 year old can do it
    The forum member saw how easy it was to do
    Just follow the instructions on the screen

    Thank you for that.

    Is that typical of a 330? Was hoping for closer to 250 but probably wishful thinking!

    Your looking at bhp figures
    It's the torque that makes the difference
    This car hasn't adapted yet and was dynoed straight after the remap

    Do a google search for impressive gains e46 330ci
