    Remap a VR6??

    Hi Guys

    I see some people have remapped there VR6.

    Is it worth doing??
    What would you get out of it??
    What needs to be done before a remap??
    Whats the best reamp??

    When i had a Audi S3 i had it revo remapped but i would think it would be a different remap needed.

    I'm just seeing what people have done before i think about getting anything myself.

    Thanks Johnny

    There are two or three places to go . DG autotec ,believe they are still going ?, someone will name the other two . The engine will be more responsive , fuel consumption will be better as well. When they remap ,the vagcom is conected, they adjust the engine to run the best it can ,ie running to rich or whatever ,they can sought it . Well worth doing anyway .Rob

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    My car came with a remap from AMD and it's really responsive compared to my old C. Not sure about it being much faster but it rolling roaded a bit higher. Makes the car feel lighter and fresher I think that's where the best gain is.

    I also get about 26mpg on the same runs to work I used to get no more than 22 from my old vr...

    If your gonna get it mapped, obviously its better to do it after buying exhaust, air filter, intake manni, exhaust manni, etc etc or whatever performance mods you decide you want. Reason being is that as soon as you add these after a remap, it negates what you've just done. Better off doing other mods before the remap.
