135BHP - Where to Remap?
« on: August 18, 2014, 03:06:51 pm »
Hi,

I've got a 135bhp Abarth 500...

Where is the best place to get a Remap at a decent price? I've read a few that can get 190bhp out of it, for around £1000 and then a few to around 170BHP at around £400 etc

any suggestions?

Cheers
Jamie

    What area are you in is probably the easiest starting point then how far are you happy travelling?
    That way people from them areas will be able to suggest places they have either used or heard good things about.

    As for figures, well that's abit tricky as a lot of rolling roads differ, so seem to give slightly high figures others more conservative figures. If the car s totally standard and running on super 97/98/99ron unleaded fuels anything between 150-160bhp ... Now before people start shouting and screaming that they got 170bhp plus from just a remap, I'm just pointing out that most standard cars with modest remaps that doesn't push boost figures upto 1.4bar or something else completely silly is the average bhp figure people get with remaps or tuning boxes.

    For the sake of a little extra cash I'd throw in a sports panel filter, maybe a silicone turbo hose for few extra pounds and if you can stretch your budget to a cat back exhaust or just a Group N rear section before getting the car mapped you should see a slightly better gain than adding them after the map has been altered. If budget is super tight just throw in a BMC or other panel filter and get the car remapped and you should see at the ver least 160bhp :thumb:

    I'd be taking it somewhere decent such as RS tuning, San speed, EVO tune etc. Not a fan of this generic load a map on, tell you it's 170bhp and on your way. Not saying that doesn't work but I just prefer paying the extra for time spent fine tuning it.

    Mentioned before SanSpeed in Kent have been working on Abarths since their launch in the UK and the few members I've spoken to that have used them said they've been happy.

    Paul's running a SS with a modified Monza (flap forced open) and I'm sure he said his is running 170-175bhp I think.

    I'll be using either SansSpeed or AmD for my suspension fitting and engine mods/remap then after in future for my servicing as I'm not overly happy with Lipscomb prices or customer service record

    Just be aware if your car is euro 6 a remap will be hard to come by.

    If you take it to a decent mapping place though like some of them mentioned ones they will soon be able to map it. They won't struggle if they know what they are doing.

    I live in Nuneaton, not hugely bothered about the price if it's decent , and prepared to travel

    I also have another question though,  my car pops, when at the top end of 2nd gear, soon as I take my foot off accelerator, 8/10 times it pops... Sounds awesome, just checking is this standard on abarth 500's as my friend had one a few years ago, and his never did it ?

    I know nothing about cars to be honest , which is why I'm asking for the advice

    Is that a live map (custom) or generic ?
