    Eco tech would be the better one
    I know the person that makes them and dose a top job
    What are you loping to get?
    more power or the most amount of power from the car?
    If you are looking for more power and mpg then a good made remap will give you 220-230bhp
    If you want the most the a Decat and remap with will give you higher torque for longer in the rev range

    thanks for that, The reason i'm thinking about a de-cat pipe is the original is blowing and needs replacing, i'm not really looking for loads more power, a bit more mpg would be good but i also read somewhere that it wears the turbo out if you don't get it chipped at the same time ??? this worries me as starts getting a bit expensive with a chip ! many thanks again cheers mikey
