Hi Beags

 

Currently so far I have done the following

 

Full Engine Rebuild

uprated intercooler

uprated turbo 20g

uprated fuel pump and regulator

coil overs all round with pillow ball top mounts

Strut Braces (under body) + engine

turbo back exhaust

Bov

Boost Controller

 

there is so many photos and more that I have done in the 6 month period

 

This is ready for its remap at surrey rolling road in the next month

Really excited to see what figure she will push, I'm not that fused about power compare to reliability so as long as I hit the 300 figure I will be happy :)

I was Wondering about the boost but due to the turbo upgrade I had no choice to take off the boost solenoid because it could not control the pressure no more so when I spoke to Surrey rolling road they advised to scrap the genuine one keep it harnessed in until I arrive at the shop as that will keep all lights off dash which has worked great I have not stuck it in boost properly until the remap is done, but was told to get a manual one and set to standard pressure until he configures the car,

The car is garaged and is not my day to day.

You should be absolutely fine with that particular mapper !, I won't go into details, just saying reasearch mappers very very well before you have any work done

Nah that's good to hear - iv spoken to another company Scooby clinic I think it was and had a chat with those guys and they explained to me there is a chance that when you remap the ecu the mappers can frag it by accident in other terms messed up your ecu and then your screwed and have to pay for a replacement or a piggyback ecu apparently this happens often so that's why he gave me a heads up, me not so confident now

With that info I related it to andy forrest and he explained this is not a common issue at there branch and I should not have any issues but please bear in mind there is a chance this may happen still

 

Any One on here had any issues with there ecu from having it professional mapped

Hi Andy..

Like yourself, am new here..

Cant comment on other remappers, but I used Bob Rawle in Swindon.. Awesome bloke, very professional and have yet to meet anyone more knowledgable about scoobies than him.. Believe he was the first in the world to remap an impreza over 300bhp, even though Subaru themselves believed it could not be done.. He went on to develop their ecu sofware..

No rolling road with Bob.. As he said to me "how often do you drive on a rolling road then?".. Had some interesting runs up a nice road near Swindon with loads of stuff hooked up to the car while he remapped it.. End result was 323bhp (from 280bhp stock) but it is the way the power is delivered that is so impressive.. Silky smooth..

Brmm brmm..
