Is a remap worth the money?
I was recently been enquiring about a custom exhaust and one place here in the U.K. (Powerflow exhausts) also offer remaps which they were keen enough to promote alongside the exhaust- they are claiming a "guaranteed" 21hp increase for the CR-Z in particular but I'm struggling to believe this claim considering the car isn't turbo'd or supercharged. They don't tune on a dyno either so without paying for a dedicated dyno session there's no quantifiable proof of any increase. The price quoted was £240, which in my past experience is about £100-150 cheaper than a dyno tune, but I'm not entirely convinced. Has anyone had any experience with these, what I'd call, "blind" remaps- they any good or is it just guesswork by the tuner just advancing the timing and adding a bit of fuel to the standard map?
