Hello...any experience out there of getting a basic remap of a C4 1.6 VTi? Mine's manual, 120bhp. Really like it but kind of annoying that there's no decent power unless you're already doing 60+, or unless you rev the absolute parsnips off it. I know Remap Kings, Superchips and the usual suspects offer a basic remap, which is in theory all I'd need...Thanks! Jon

There's not much a remap can do to an N/A engine, usually needs a decemnt amount of money thrown at it to implrove the inlet and exhaust flow. Probably cheaper buuyng a more powerful car.

Thanks! With stage 1 remaps only costing £250, I’m not expecting miracles - just a bit of extra poke in second and third would be nice! Having said that, I bought the C4 over a Civic, which also being N/A was even slower, despite being a 1.8 - and was a hell of a lot more expensive!
