30 bhp is quite substantial (sp?) imo. cost seems about right maybe a little too much i think. but yea do it, remaps are def worth it

You will definately notice 30bhp! 500 for 30 bhp is very good value when you think you'd spend around 400 on a good exhaust and induction kit and only gain 5bhp!

Having driven my bosses remapped pd130 i'd say yes it is definitely worth it, pulls hard in every single gear!

Bear in mind your gearbox might suffer from that power. Too much torque and you'll get clutch slip. I know people with seat ibiza TDIs and fabia VRS worry about their remaps making the car 'too powerful' for its own good.

Custom map is best

gearbox would be fine - they are designed well within limits so uping power and torque by a small margin will be within design limits.

Manufacturers would not devlop a gearbox that was close to the cars OEM limits just doesn't make sense

Over time gearbox will be fine but issues with the clutch will rear its ugly head I gurantee it. Depends how long you keep it and how hard you drive it.

p.s. i know you car isnt VAG but i was using an example.

Met a lad with a fabia VRS that works with another vauxhall dealer. Hes remapped at 195bhp and was told not to do any other work on the engine without remapping again or the torque will half the life of the box.

yeah but a 195 tdi isn't just a remap is it, that would be stage 2 so a fair few more mods.

He said it was just a VRS with filter, exhaust and custom remap.

I very much doubt you'd see an extra 65bhp from those mods.
