To get the best out of cams it really should be live mapped.

Best place to get it mapped is RStuning in leeds imo, no sure if theres anywhere decent around your area.

What cams has it got ?

cool just rang ktech £250 + vat!
does that sound about right?
at the min it feels the same as my 172 cup i take it once the map is done it will be a lot quicker?
its a 182 by the way lol

To see the most benefit you really want a live map, i think Ktec do live mapping but may be worth checking.

It wont be stupidly quick but it will be quicker. depending on the rollers id think youd see something around 190 bhp (182s dont make 182bhp)
You will see a torque increase though.

RStuning are great, Paul is a top Lad, usually he will do a power run before to get a idea of what its running. Do a couple of runs whilst he maps it, and does his magic. Then a power run with a final result.

Make sure u get it mapped on 98/99RON :D

Hes done our track car twice now and will be doing it again some time soon.

hi beij, good to meet you last night.
thats lucky about the cams! yeah, get paul at RStuning to live map it. he should be able to make the most of the cams from what i have heard of him. very good reputation.

If Leeds is a bit of a treck for you, it might be worth giving Jamsport a call in Northampton see what they can do for you ?


Or drop a pm to this guy broster@JAM-Sport

Really suprised you needed the owner to tell you it had cams.

Im running 428's fitted a few weeks ago, cars similer to yours as in its not mapped to these cams but is mapped to the previous set of cams and the car is slower than a standard one! its completly gutless. I'd lay money on a 1.2 Corsa being quicker to 100 its so slooooooowwww just now. Not that iv been ragging it, just the feel

Its booked in mid October. Idle was really good till the HT's knackerd up after 30 miles. I replaced them with some 2nd hand ones and its not as smooth now but ok. Think there could be a prob with these leads too tho so im not really a good example to compare against lol

Consider RSTuner, can make a map to suit your cams, it will be alike live map though at a distance. And a lot cheaper. (www.fastchip.nl)

And considering what you get out from mapping Clio's, it won't make real difference on the road which either you pick to be honest.

Regards
