Upgrade air filter before or after remap?
« on: December 13, 2021, 01:52:49 pm »
Hi all,

I have a stage 1 remap booked for this coming Friday 17th Dec. Am I ok to upgrade the filter to forge induction kit afterwards? I'm not looking to upgrade it just yet. 180 comp.  ???

    Is the remap going to be 'live' on a dyno or just a slap a new program in the ecu? If the former, yes it will make a difference. If the latter then as long as it is a generic software load then it won't.

    Ah man. I thought it was going to be one of these. Would it be best to cancel the remap then, until I get the forge induction sorted because it's a live dyno? The remap was going to cost £120.

    Forgot to add into my last comment. How much gains would I also be missing if I just went for it?

    These cars don’t breath to well on the standard airbox, with a live map will give you 4-5hp.

    Okay, so I'm getting the vibe to cancel my remap slot ... Purchase and install the forge induction and then book another remap. Does that sound right?

    Yes, sorry but no point of tuning if not in it's final built state.
