ECU remapping

    Hi folks just looking for opinions on this topic. I have a 2018 1.6 Skoda superb, 120 HP. I'm far from a boy racer but sometimes I would like a bit more power. Kinda regret not getting a 2.0 but this was a good deal and to be honest for most of my driving power is fine.

    I won't do anything without consulting a trusted mechanic but I would be interested in opinions.

    Most importantly is it effective and safe and also what are insurance implications. Also is the process reversible.

    Maybe my car would not be suitable for this.

    Any thoughts and opinions welcome.

    Yes, it is effective. And yes it is reversible. Check with your insurer for implications.

    Currently it's £280 with a discount from Superchips in the UK.

    It's reversible, so you can put it on and remove it whenever you want to.

    Would provide an extra 24bhp.

    Talk to Joe Power in TDR Performance in Monasterevin, he knows VW stuff inside out, he will update the engine software to the latest version, test drive the car, and run it on the dyno. Cost is approx €380. Much better than an off the shelf product in my opinion.

    only disadvantage is you can’t just unplug it.
