Corsa c 2004 1l
Corsa d 2013 1.4 turbo Sri, stage 1 175bhp (clutch ruiner, poor quality remap, caused the clutch to slip pretty much constantly) got bored with that as it was slow as s**t.
Peugeot 207GTI 2008 1.6THP stage 1 210bhp (only reason I got rid was because of the crap timing chain/oil breather design this engine suffers with, otherwise a brilliant car)
Polo 6c GTI

Think it's made a big improvement, better than I expected to be honest. Got it on the first setting +1 at the moment which certainly gives it a nice kick at 3k.

Good to hear. I've only had the diesel CDT versions previously, you also had to take apart and adjust the pins on to adjust which was a massive pain so I'm curious to see what it'll be like with easy access to the buttons.

Out of curiosity as the battery is now in the boot for the GTi I assume there must be a positive feed in the fuse box somewhere?

I'd presume so.... I'm clueless regarding how cars work and things so my brother fitted the box :oops:
